    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, discounts, internal development, training, and many advancements from within. With new CEO in place we are beginning to see a good future. Highly supportive of him. People person and speaks to everyone. He is just not all talk. Does what he says. Foss is the right guy.

    Cons

    Work Life Balance. Changing of 3 CEO in the last 6 years. No hunt and fishing in stores.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance. People need to spend time with their families on Thanksgiving and Easter Sunday. Corporate office receive many perks but stores are left with pictures from how much fun they have in Denver.
    Benefit perks are for Denver based. There needs to be funds for team building. We see pictures all the time of Denver having fun doing, races, runs and events.
