    Pros

    Great campus and lots of hot male coworkers

    Cons

    I'm not adequately compensated. Senior management is lazy and smug. Senior management delegates all their responsibility. Not much opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so superior and recognize my tremendous contribution to NikeLab

    Pros

    Nike is a reputable brand. Discounts.

    Cons

    You pay tax on your uniform. They preach great career opportunities in the interview but only part-time positions of 15 hrs a week are available. No amount of a discount on clothing and ever replace the value of a liveable wage.

    Advice to Management

    Disclose all costs and conditions of employment prior to interview.

    Pros

    Lots of fun working there until I found out the Cons

    Cons

    They lie to contractors about conversion to full time.
    They'll cut you off in a heartbeat if you max out on hours and force a 3 month furlow - even if in the middle of holidays.
    They'll prevent you from ever coming back if you say one bad word about them - even if true.
    ...and this is more pro-unlimited/Flex than Nike per say - nevertheless...
    I loved working there, they screwed me, I published the facts and they won't let me come back therefore.

    Advice to Management

    Dump pro-unlimited.
    Live up to your promises to contractors on contract-to-hire.
    Don't say one thing's ok to do, then turn around and try to use it as a reason to end a contract.... i.e. working remotely, working long hours to complete a project in time... etc.

  7. Manager encouraged no OT pay

    I worked at NIKE (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty nice environment, running trail around main campus, great cafeterias, close to shopping and access to employee store.

    Cons

    My first meeting with my team lead revolved around OT. He told me when he worked there as a contractor, he never billed for OT. He spoke to me and other members on the team, trying to get us to not bill for OT, despite working long hours. Also saw instances where they would take advantage of people on a VISA and also not pay fair wage or OT.

    Advice to Management

    Manage the leads better. They should not be encouraging people to NOT get paid for OT. Also saw instances where they would take advantage of people on a VISA and also not pay fair wage or OT.

    Pros

    most folks I met at Nike were ambitious, intelligent, and driven

    Cons

    despite a lot of lip service suggesting that individuals can make a difference and should look for new ways to improve processes and policies, it's actually frowned on to be over ambitious or to "create work for oneself."

    Advice to Management

    learn the real meaning of work/life balance & practice what you preach

    Pros

    Nice campus, decent gym, good 401k plan.

    Cons

    By far many of the WORST managers work at this company. The ones I ran across (and there were MANY) simply had no idea as to what the company's' strategic plans are, how their group fit into the picture or how to actually lead (vs. manage) their staff. Lack of vision, inability to read above the 6th grade level and lack of empathy for employees (especially contractors) makes this place not much more than just a sweatshop. No support in career planning and advancement, no training unless you are willing to do it on personal time, and lips service by the "good ol'l boys network in the norm here. If you are a minority, female or over 40 expect to be pushed aside by people who are way less qualified than you.expect to

    Advice to Management

    For goodness sake - get your heads out of your rear! Look around at the rest of the employees you have on staff and try to actually USE their talents and experience. You have WAY too many "frat boys" running the place and little, if any, who know how to actually run a business and get things done without wasting so much time and money! Stop wondering at why so MANY senior level professionals leave Nike so soon after they start!
