    Pros

    The pay is better than most athletic retail stores, the environment is great (its really a family kind of enviroment you honest get to know all your co-workers personally), and the benefits are outstanding. Dress code is athletic wear so you get to wear very comfy clothes to work.

    Cons

    The hours are terrible and moving up in the company is really hard.

    I worked at Under Armour

    Pros

    Great leadership within the stores. The product quality was probably the best part of the job. Because of the great product, it was easier to sell it to the product!

    Cons

    Hard to advance within the store.

    Pros

    The employee discount is probably the best pro of working at Under Armour. I work with some great associates as well.

    Cons

    I feel that there is a minimal amount of perks. The only perk that comes to mind is the employee discount. The management, at least in my store, do not do anything. They kind of just stand around and boss everyone around. They would just moan about how many money they need to make in the day yet they just stand there. Additionally, requesting off can be a major issue. The company, like others have block out dates where you cannot request off. I understand - however, they belittle you if you absolutely need to take the day off. They would make you feel about it. I had a prior commitment where I would be out of state and the store manager was just yelling at me for no reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find love in your company. It's a great place to work but don't let your issues with the higher ups effect how you lead your associates. And also - do work. Do not just stand around and give people orders. I've worked in various other companies where the management are role models. In your case, not so much.

    Pros

    This company is not afraid to think outside the box and is willing to change with the birth of new ideas.

    Cons

    Employees become very loyal to the company, but the company is not as loyal to employees. Sales associates and Store managers become expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation and effort to your team that represents your brand and believes in your product.

    I worked at Under Armour

    Pros

    Great employee discount and great medical benefits. You get wear super comfy workout clothes to work everyday. You can get promoted from within the company.

    Cons

    Doesn't have a great training program for managers, need a great, comprehensive training manual. More and more micromanaging of stores, taking managers away from running their stores. Horrible pay for what's expected. An extremely profitable company, making more money every year, that isn't sharing that growth with their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your leaders to lead their business. Excessive micromanaging is counterproductive. Make retail stores a priority, not an afterthought, as it was communicated at the yearly leadership conference last year.

    Doesn't Recommend
