    Pros

    The actual work is fun and rewarding, great coworkers. Great health plan.

    Cons

    Management tends to be all work and no play, expecting everyone to work longer days because they do. We have unlimited paid time off and remote work capabilities but are guilted into never using it. If you’re sick, you’re expected to work from home. There is no respect for employees time outside of work, thus we experience poor work life balance. Upper management doesn’t seem...

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees are overworked and stressed, encourage them to take time off every once in a while.

    I have been working at Fanatics part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have a lot of credentials.

    Cons

    This company focuses on the customers and money and don't care about the employees . They have zero appreciation or respect for the "little guys" actually working in the retail locations making those conmections with their customers. When upper management comes onsite they talk about our set-up and displays and what changes they want to make to everyone execpt for us. I particularly...

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out your butts and treat your employees better! You guys are disgusting! Treat us like people not objects! Utilize the same training objectives on yourselves and create an environment of which your employees want to work hard and not feel like their are useless.

    Pros

    Casual work environment and good employee discount on merchandise.

    Cons

    Pay is be low national average for similar jobs. Upper management is useless and too many middle managers that don't know what each are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees in the trenches that know what's going on, and not to a supervisor or middle manager who are only say what you want to hear to put a feather in their cap and not what's good for the company or employees.

    Pros

    bagels on friday, location, cool people

    Cons

    my manager is a slave driver. The omt project was great before upper management put the wrong people in place. You are expected to finish something when the manager decides it should be done. You will get talked to if you dont finish it regardless of how unrealistic the deadline is. people are constantly leaving. Teams are lean and there arent many chances for career advancements.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your entire IT management. Great company with great CEO but IT organisation is not the place to be with these people.

    I have been working at Fanatics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced with new challenges each day. There aren’t many layers of management which helps as far as escalating ideas or issues to people who can help. DTO does allow for flexibility to take days off.

    Cons

    Salaried/hourly employees are treated as a commodities and not people. It’s almost an unspoken rule for upper management to have been in the military and you will be treated as you’d expect to be by former military officers, as a grunt. Turnover is very high making the lives of those left behind. Average tenure here has to be well under two years. Teams will have well over...

    Pros

    Fanatics Inc. as a COMPANY is amazing. The culture and casual dress code is comparable to Google and Facebook.

    Cons

    The middle and upper management are driving this company in the ground, and that is not an understatement! The middle/upper management only hire and promote people that they know or that kiss their behind. They do not promote based off of skill, intelligence, and seniority. Thus, a lot of highly qualified people are doing menial tasks;...

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere in a very fast paced industry. Lots of opportunity for travel and promotion within.

    Cons

    Company is expanding so quickly. Causing many shifts in power of upper management. Not a lot of communication with lower level staff.

    Pros

    Fast paced company. Company has drawling every year for peak season. Where they give away gift cards, TV's, sports packages. And such. They continue to make upgrades to the plant to improve employee comfort.

    Cons

    I have been an epic lead ( seasonal lead) for the past two years. I have had to train a full-time lead both years to take over my job. No one in upper management has the time of day to talk with you about your concerns. Human resources are not there for the employee they are there for the company. A lot of us were due for pay raises the first of December. We have yet to see them....

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees and what's going on in each department. Know who does the best job at leading a department correctly. Just because a person is in a full-time lead position does not mean they are the best suited for that position.
