No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Sports Authority full-time

Pros

There are no pros to working with this company.

Cons

To get promoted you need to be friends with a VP or b liked. You cannot have an opinion or else you are black balled. You have to be a "YES" type of person.

Advice to Management

Need to get rid of the Upper level management and start fresh. Closed ideas and nothing will change with the current management in place./

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

    Pros

    Great location located in Englewood (Denver), Colorado
    Fun Retail Category working in a slow growth category of Sporting Goods
    Work Environment is fair but living in one of the most active communities in the US provides for a very healthy lifestyle.

    Cons

    Private Equity owners are very inconsistent, not transparent and untrustworthy creating real insecurity, low moral and lack of loyalty across enterprise. They have had more than 5 Chief Marketing Officers in less than 7 years, this is a BIG problem. No clear customer direction has been communicated.

    Advice to Management

    Be Real, Be Authentic, start to Innovate and Be Bold
    Stronger commitment to vision and improve communication across entire enterprise
