    I have been working at Under Armour (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice company culture. There is a spirit of both self dedication and strong teamwork that is invoked when trying to reach our goals. I appreciate having a 401k available as a part-time sales associate.

    Cons

    Dealing with some older registers can be frustrating, as well as trying to clean with a vacuum that is better off in a landfill.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay would be appreciated across the board. Newer hardware (registers) would be appreciated in the factory house stores. Experiencing the Brand House in Chicago leaves much to be desired in some of the smaller stores.


  6. Easy job to make money

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

    Pros

    Good discount on product both in store and on-line 50% off discount

    Cons

    Management is laughable at best about being personable. No potential for growth or promotions Internal promotion is non-existent

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within the company before you bring people from competitors. Learn to communicate clearly and concise between one another. Learn to talk to the people you are there to "manage"

    I worked at Under Armour full-time

    Pros

    Great employee discount in stores and online. Great atmosphere with great employees to work with on a regular basis. Store management cares about the associates

    Cons

    Needs to pay more hourly especially considering their annual revenue overall for the company is very high and competitive in the market

    Advice to Management

    More growth opportunities for the associates and give the employees who work hard the right pay that they deserve instead of $8.50/ hour and then small raises for longevity

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

    Pros

    Cool company with great marketing. Huge growth and growth potential. "Coolness factor" high. Good resume' builder. Good benefits and sign-on if you aren't entry-level and have negotiating skills.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations of workload (70-80 hours per week salaried). "Get it done at all costs" culture. Lack of systems (managing $250M+ desk in excel, no visibility to on-order inventory, etc.). Leadership not experienced at leading people, just good at their positions they manage. No processes or people who can develop processes. Lack of team integration (teams are very silo'd). Company still acts like a startup when they are a $3Bn company. Basically, it's like sausage: you like how it tastes, but don't want to see how it's made.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in planning systems so your team isn't managing hundreds of millions in Excel. Have reasonable expectations for employee workload (50-55 hrs is ok, 70-80 is NOT). Implement and standardize processes and SOPs so UA isn't constantly reinventing the wheel. Invest in better training. Invest in leadership training. Invest in manpower so a job fit for 6 is being done by 6, not by 1 person. Stay "humble and hungry", don't maintain the attitude that talent that leaves must not matter or is bad talent.
