    I have been working at Under Armour full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is tons of growth with UA and an opportunity to be promoted from within. UA doesn't skimp when it comes to taking care of employees i.e meals, hotels, gear.

    Cons

    Lots of young people and not many people on the way out. It could make it tough to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have much! It is a great place and everyone who works there has so much passion for the brand.

    I worked at Under Armour full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Had the pleasure to be apart of some of their biggest campaigns to date, but still always left knowing how great things were getting in the future. They are all passionate and forward thinking while bringing in some of the best minds throughout the industry. With smaller offices, it was great to be able to talk and learn from those who have decades more experience in a stellar environment.

    Cons

    Never settled on a specific vision, which could be a good thing at times, but the constant back and forth in direction left for confusion among team at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more commutative in where things are moving and increase communication across the board. Loyalty is a strong memory, and not standing by employees says a lot about your leadership.

    I have been working at Under Armour full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Fun environment
    - Rapidly growing company

    Cons

    - Low pay rates
    - Lots of overtime expected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees well. If they perform well show them that they're appreciated by fair compensation. Ex: More than 1% raise for an employee who gets a perfect review. This company is now worth $3 Billion...

    Great work environment, Great people, Great benefits, good location.
    They are really able to rally up a lot of drive in their employees.

    Management seemed to lack direction of people and there were a lot of pet projects that seemed to waste a bit of time. Other than that, not much negative things to say

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I felt that management sometimes lacked organization and there were also a lot of pet projects that got in the way of productivity on stuff that mattered
