    Great Mission, Amazing Potential but Unprofessional, Muddled & Weak Management

    Pros

    UACF/MapMyFitness will continue to evolve from a powerhouse to a behemoth in the wearables and health and fitness data space. I am confident they will globally dominate with the latest acquisitions and the release of UA Record. The mission and vision is clear and innovative-Make the everyday athlete a better version of themselves and UACF is well on their way!

    Cons

    Management is very top heavy and very isolated from one another. Too many cooks in the kitchen that have been cobbled together from different acquisitions. They have their owns camps they want to protect their own key players, not always the house. Management style, for a certain faction, is rooted in unrealistic expectations, lingering threats, management inexperience, unprofessional discriminatory speech/behavior, and false sincerity for one’s professional success. Management finds this type of behavior acceptable as it's "Hardcore" "Intense" "Winning" and "Competitive" as one would be on a professional sports team. Team members' hard work, efforts, relationships and traction were not valued but were given to other “protected” and tenured underperformers as others were bullied out of the company.

    Pros

    A huge user base is fun to work with from an engineering perspective. Lots of opportunity to try new things

    Cons

    Poor leadership, technical and otherwise. Constant reactions to moves made by others in the health/fitness app space. Very little innovation. Mostly just playing catchup to apps with a more cohesive product

    Pros

    - mission driven company with a focus on improving human health through connected fitness - CEO and management team with incredible passion and vision for global digital/mobile leadership - incredible growth on every front, revenue, talent, brand profile, athletes, teams and assets - world class proven digital leadership and talent via acquisition of 3 of the top health/fitness category app leaders

    Cons

    - with rapid growth comes change, uncertainty, and a need to be able to "go with the flow" at times - working here will likely force you to grow your career, and growing generally happens outside our comfort zones: you will be uncomfortable at times. Just like fitness. Your teammates will pick you up.

    UA is good resume fodder...that's about it.

    Pros

    From a brand marketing perspective, UA couldn't be hotter right now. Almost worth taking a job there for that reason alone. The Quantified Self movement is cool, fun and growing. The HQ office in Austin is awesome. Expense/travel budgets are decent.

    Cons

    -Zero, literally Zero, training and/or development. The 'Tribal Knowledge' factor is rampant. -Throwing people under the bus is common practice. If something goes wrong, it's somebody else's fault. It starts with the leadership team and trickles down to everyone else. -The only common theme is change. -Revenue is king, but there is no CRO and no new revenue ideas. They've been beating the marketing "Fitness Challenge" to death. -UA spent 3/4 of $1B to acquire MMF, MFP and Endomondo users. Only a matter of time before the ROI fails to meet expectations and heads begin rolling. -I doubt Mike and/or Albert Lee stay there for long. Losing them would hurt the business. Go look at the Glassdoor reviews for MyFitnessPal and compare them to MapMyFitness...you'll get the picture.

    Pros

    Good job, stable outlook with perhaps room to grow within UA.

    Cons

    Management is weak and hasn't been replaced by UA yet. Integration with other teams is painful

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and a company that encouraged people to use and be champions of their products. My personal work/life balance was outstanding and fitness was encouraged. Lots of smart, good people with great Denver and Austin office environments. Purchased by Under Armour which provided great discounts on products.

    Cons

    From my experience it was a very much "ME" environment with very little collaboration. There was very little "team" effort and where there was, it felt forced. Management was VERY hands off, which can be both good and bad- in this case it's bad. They didn't provide much help but were very quick to point fingers and place blame if things went sideways. Not much room for meaningful growth within the company and I saw cases of resentment when some tried to move around. Like another reviewer, I also did not receive an exit interview and fully agree with the comments about it being a "boy's club". Several of the Senior Managers and C-Level leaders I met were exceptionally arrogant- not confident, arrogant. I would not recommend a friend to work in the division I did, but can't say what the experience would be like elsewhere in the company.
