Global (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – 19 July 2019
The company was forced to layoff hundreds of employees all due to poor leadership (including from the CEO), and yet nothing has improved. Workplace culture is a joke and non-existent, and almost everyone is overworked and underpaid. People are dropping like flies! Hardwork is neither recognized or rewarded.....its still all about who you know!
Stock Associate (Current Employee) – Wyoming, MI – 21 August 2019
Absolutely love working here! Quick paced, but good hours. Usually no extra hours, they like to keep it under 5 hour shifts so they don’t have to give you a break. Great discount on everything. Overall, great place to work!
The team my peers were a part of were all based out of Austin with leadership in Baltimore, Denver and San Francisco. Management had the entire media team, account managers, project managers, data analysts, ad-ops, creative (copy and visual design) all take nearly a year of expensive, time-consuming, and ultimately hollow sales training to help secure media partnerships. This involved flights for 50-70 team members, catering, hotels, and the work of a third party sales training consultancy. Once we made it through all the training, leadership gave it about 3-4 months to watch those numbers skyrocket. When they didn't since less business was in the pipeline because of all the training, they laid off most of the team. Time wasted. Money burned. Myopic leadership who all kept their jobs. They also had no transition plan for high paying media partners who were already working with UA. Plus, internal teams that relied on our group had no knowledge of the strategy shift and were left wondering what was going on, because a poorly rolled out series of cutbacks in 2018 extended to 2019 and they were supposedly done. What a mess. Just check the stock price. Oh, you get discount shares there.
