    Pros

    People, Culture, Corporate Office is AMAZING, Benefits all good, Executive Level ALWAYS TRANSPARENT

    Pros

    The dedication and caring that Academy has towards their employees is above all others. They seek out talent and then help that talent grow and prosper. I truly feel like it is one big family. I have been here 9 years and have moved positions multiple times. Each position I learn and grow both as an individual and in my career. The amount of time and effort our leadership puts into each employees growth is over the top.

    Cons

    I have none to report

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I love that leadership has been traveling to the Field and visiting with everyone. It makes us stronger!
