    Pros

    Laid back environment, new technology, and lots of room to learn new web software/technologies

    Cons

    Raises are not always given and that is across the board

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees will stay if you just give some type of financial increase in salaries.

    I worked at Varsity Brands part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    By far the best way to get work experience during the summer. Everyone is friendly, upper management is easily approachable, and you truly make a difference for the campers.

    Cons

    The only con would be if you were trying to use this as a full time career. The pay would be low compared to other full time jobs.

    Loved it.

    I worked at Varsity Brands as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great summer job for spirit squad (dance, cheer, mascot) in college, cool travel opportunities.

    Cons

    There are not many cons ... the one things I would say is that it might be hard to get camps and events if you have other things in your schedule. May limit income opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Is great if being in the midst of cheerleading is the peak of your goals.

    Cons

    The pay and working multiple irrelevant jobs in addition to your hired position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees outcry and utilize their strengths and reward with competitive compensation to maintain personnel that are assets to the company.

    Pros

    Upbeat work environment. Staff is fantastic, and products are high quality. Lots of holidays! Opportunity to travel during competition season.

    Cons

    Disconnect in information sharing. Product is often late or unavailable. Training is minimal, leading to confusion in new reps and support staff. Benefits somewhat lacking. Jobs are not posted internally... Opportunities for development are minimal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more forthcoming with information to internal staff and reps. Upgrade the antiquated computer systems! Allow more employee feedback and ideas!

    Pros

    Get to work with great people who have a passion for life and of course cheerleading! Truly a lovely group of smart and dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Some of the events require a lot of hours and time, which can be draining. Have to stay upbeat and positive, so working for this company may not suit everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep up with product trends and stay ahead of the curve on branding. Get involved in local communities and continue to provide a positive work environment.
