    I have been working at adidas Group

    Pros

    I love the company, love the brand, and the people where I work are amazing

    Cons

    The pay is decent, you get a raise once a year but only based on how you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the manages could you a bit more training in managing people. Some of them can act like we are there and have no idea what we are doing.

    I worked at adidas Group

    Pros

    Interning at adidas was truly a great experience. All of the employees are so nice and, as a recent graduate, they all seemed to want to help me land a full-time position since that is the usual desired next step for interns who are no longer in school. The "campus" as they call it (aka the layout of the headquarters) is about as fun, creative, and sports-oriented as the individuals who work there. There are on campus indoor and outdoor basketball courts, a soccer field and tennis courts. There is also an adidas gym, an on-site stores with employee discounts, and a great food court. I interned during the World Cup in soccer which is the adidas strong suit in the sports world. The atmosphere, therefore, was amazing. People would work hard but also take breaks occasionally to catch a good soccer half and support adidas-sponsored teams. Many employees workout on their midday lunch breaks in stead of eating to catch a break from the desk life, and simply bring their food back with them afterwards. The bottom line is that adidas is a fun place to work. It encourages healthy living, laughing, and improving of the sports world.

    Cons

    My only real con is the location. I wish I could move adidas from Portland to California or Florida or to just about any one of the other major cities in the US. If you're from the pacific northwest then you're lucky because you'll be used to it. As someone from the east coast, however, the grey and rainy days and truly odd Oregonian culture were a little bit much for me. The people are really nice and there are things to do. The summer is not as dreary as the rest of the year and is actually pretty beautiful. All in all, however, that really can be a deal breaker.

    I have been working at adidas Group part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The discount and bonuses are always great. Coworkers turn into a family. Their scheduling is flexible and most importantly its a fun and friendly environment.

    Cons

    The pay should be better, products could be better, the company itself is late with what's actually selling. WE CAN'T WEAR ORIGINALS TO WORK.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to be more open minded when it comes to products and customer needs. For example, the shoe cleaners look exactly like the ones from Footlocker, Champs, ect. Why not make a shoe cleaner thats unique and eye catching? We can't wear originals to work? What's the point of selling products we can't wear? We know the brand is sports oriented, but what about making our brand number one? Track pants are always difficult to sell MOSTLY because of how it fits to most customers. Majority of the time its too long. How about me make width and length sizes? You know what sells for the future? Kids. The selection in the children's department isn't that huge for back to school events, Christmas, ect. Lets have a better variety of choices for our kids. Women always complains to me about their selection of clothes and shoes. Telling me about why we always have the same pink, purple, and black color scheme. Once again, lets be open minded with our brand that is all that I am asking. There is actually a handful of advice that I would like to give to this company as being apart of this company.
