    I worked at Sports Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress code.
    Good salary.
    Used to be good benefits, although they are disappearing
    Did I mention the dress code?

    Cons

    No work/life balance
    Managers play favorites, throw others under the bus.
    Cliques nurtured by managers.
    Culture of blame.

    Advice to Management

    Stop believing what your lower managers tell you and get out there and experience the actual goings on for yourselves, you might be surprised at the difference between what you are told and what is real.

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people in a good location. It was fun and happy before someone came along and fired so many people. There are fun things like vendors setting up in the parking lot with giveaways and food trucks. Casual dress code is nice (no flip flops or t-shirts).

    Cons

    Old building, tiny gym (it's a sporting goods company!), unethical practices in regards to growth and salary (HR). Everyone is constantly scared so lots of micro-managing and useless "firedrills." Took away discount, flex-time, pandora...no one is happy here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the people who matter, upgrade everything. At least pretend you care.
