Approves of CEO

I have been working at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Company objectives are supported from the top down.
Priorities are generally well defined.
Lots of work, translating to job security if you perform.
Recognition is abundant when you work with the right team

Cons

High turnover in IT
Director level power struggles
Directors actions don't always follow their words
Pay is average for retail but this is an energy corridor and tough to compete with.
Company is still operating in a small shop mentality with large growing pains.

Advice to Management

Keep the faith, remember that without good people the future gets bleak.

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

    Pros

    Employee discounts, and especially used when traveling to different states with Academy stores; Ease of training for departments via one internal system program; flexible hours with school (to an extent)

    Cons

    Tuition assistance is only available to classes deemed "business-related" instead of it being a standard flat rate for all students; connectivity services (telephone & internet) is not up to speed to where it needs to be to find critical information to customers; temperature is not regulated at a store level (explanation from managers at our store); problems within intranet between corporate and store level;

    Advice to Management

    Corporate offices should bridge the disconnect between Katy and stores; corporate needs to be more accountable with pricing/ad mistakes; management is generally good but also needs to be reminded follow store culture of "leaving attitudes in the car"
