    I have been working at Under Armour full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus with many great amenities (cafeteria, gym, nutritionist on staff, etc.)
    A lot of potencial to make an impact- if you work hard and have the right manager, you can build a career.
    Team environment where we support each other and work together.
    Leadership really stepped it up for Women’s History month and has done a lot to try to change the culture.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive unless you are a manager or above.

    We still overhear some Directors make inappropriate jokes. I’ve even seen some bully or act dismissive to female employees trying to put new structure in place or asking questions.

    Advice to Management

    Get ride of some of the Good Old Boys who refused to adapt to new processes. Yes, even the funny ones who use their wit to minimize mis-steps or discredit valid ideas.
    Stop only recruiting people with 1-2 years experience- yes, you can pay them much less they aren’t going to be as mature or competent as more seasoned employees.

    Pros

    In the right department, you can travel quite a bit and learn a lot about how NOT to run a $5b business. In most departments, you will encounter no room for career growth. In fact, the stated position of the company is that you need to blaze your own trail for a career path.

    Cons

    This is a company trying to grow in a race to the bottom. The brand's only growth is in Europe and emerging markets, and those are places that do not see UA as a premium brand. The push is to enter lower and lower price points, at higher and higher margin to satisfy shareholders and leadership. Once upon a time, this place was aspiring to be Nike; Today, they are succeeding in becoming Champion and Reebok of the early 1990's.

    Almost everyone has to sign a non compete, which is exceptionally broad and, recently, always enforced. Word is out on the street that UA enforces the NCA's, so it is very difficult to get out of the company. Be warned...

    Advice to Management

    Oust Plank. Learn how to make a shoe. Your design, color, and engineering on the shoes are an embarrassment to the brand.

    Pros

    Discount 30-50% off on athletic clothes.

    Cons

    Very little hours, they are always over staffed, you will get as little of 3 hours a week sometimes. If you work the shipment shift which is usually from 5:30am-1:30pm the manager won't allow you to take any 10 minutes break other than your 30 minute lunch because we need to be done with everything by a certain time. By law we have the right to get two tens for every 8 hours worked. I was part time and when they decided to laid me off they told me on my last worked shift.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over staff if you cannot give hours.
