    I worked at Under Armour part-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Management makes sure you are placed in the right department based on your individual strengths and weaknesses. Great discount on UA products if employed.

    Cons

    You have to continuously buy UA clothing so that you are wearing what is sold on the floor in the store. Depending on how many days per week you work, this could get expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Care about all employees equally.

    I worked at Under Armour full-time

    Pros

    Great fast-paced culture where everyone drinks the Kool-Aid. Casual work attire and company parties.

    Cons

    Very low pay for industry standards. Revolving door of VP's and Executives who come in and change strategy, then leave before being implemented. Forced to take on other employees full time positions who are laid off, with no talk or expectation of further compensation. Make you feel as if you aren't a team player if you don't accept other job responsibilities, in which many cases have nothing to do with what you were hired for initially. Leadership very detached from the day to day. Many execs are part of the "boys club" and are rarely seen in office or cascading down strategy or brand initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Be loyal and promote from within instead of telling people doing multiple roles to "leave and come back" to get compensated. Disband the old boys club and get executives who want to see the brand succeed, and not just cash a check.

    I worked at Under Armour full-time

    Pros

    I will say that the employees are passionate about the brand and the work they are doing. So much so that most of them moved TO Baltimore to be part of the culture. That's saying something.

    Cons

    They tell you on the first day that "UA is not for everybody." That's 100% accurate. Zero work life balance and total expectations that you must grind your fingers to the bone in order to be successful and progress. Since UA started losing money, the culture has shifted to the point where it's impossible to get anything accomplished with any real allocation of resources. Strategy and goal-setting are so delayed that it feels like most departments are flying blind until deep in the fiscal year.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized. Really dig in and find out if your employees feel mentally healthy or if they're just trying to stay afloat.

    Pros

    It was a fun team atmosphere

    Cons

    Full time was 30 hours per week which was weird. Could not get scheduled for more than 20, but that doesn't reflect UA
