    I worked at Under Armour part-time

    Pros

    Happy and positive people everywhere! Massive cafeteria. Endless events. Monthly opportunities to meet professional athletes. Educational courses. Bike around the campus. Amazing benefits including tuition reimbursement but only for full-time employees. Discounts from local businesses such as Smoothie King or Charm City Yoga. Awesome break areas that include cornhole, XBOX, televisions, basket ball court, and so much more. 50% off UA apparel. 50% off UA gym memership. Amazing support system. Each department is considered a team and you are considered a team member. Company contests to win cool prizes. Armour Day which features celebrities and a surprise music group performance such as One Republic, Nelly, Kid Rock, and many others. I met Ed Reed and touched the lead singer of One Republic. Team members are the first to see and sometimes purchase new gear. Very flexible schedule. A lot of diversity.

    Cons

    Little opportunity for growth within the company. Although the company's policy allows for employees who are part-time to commit at least 6 months, 1 year for full-time employees, before they can seek other opportunities within the company. In reality, it takes about 2 years of commitment to your current position and the say-so of your manager before you can move to a different position or department. In a lot of cases, employees were offered other roles in the company but were forced to turn back simply because the job wasn't there or the need in their previous department was not met. A lot of cliques of sorts. The designers have their own people, engineers have their group, team management has theirs, and the e-commerce department can also be split. As a part-time representative, you have to work just as hard as a full-time employee in order to meet sales and customer interaction goals. You also don't qualify for weekly or monthly contest unless you put in the same work as a full time employee. Putting in the work would include making 2x more calls than the ideal 9am-3pm employee would. Felt like a target of harsh criticism by another employee (who wasn't management) for my performance.

    Advice to Management

    Be fare and be equal. I get seniority is a major factor but don't let make working within the department seem unethical of sorts.
