    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent learning experience, and I have enjoyed the fellow sales associates I work with.

    Cons

    Very very little chance of moving up. They drag around on promotions when they are rarely offered. The policies are a bit excessive at times.

    Advice to Management

    Get more training before becoming a manager. Also, be more willing to train folks who already work for Academy and who are interested in becoming managers. Verses hiring retail managers from other stores and bringing them in to Academy, a place they have no knowledge of.
