    I have been working at Academy Sports + Outdoors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall laid back atmosphere, though like with most retailers, this varies greatly from store to store. Academy is a fast growing sporting goods retailer, so there are a multitude of new opportunities for career advancement popping up every year. They offer many leadership tiers, so it is easy to find a position that will challenge your growth, but not let you get in above your head.

    Cons

    As with many fast growing companies, there are times were the company's organization seems lacking and changes in products/services and policies can happen often. Company training can leave plenty to be desired, though all managers I have known fill in all of the gaps well and help you grow professionally. Compensation, especially at high leadership levels is generally lower than competitors.
