Not what it used to be! Cult atmosphere and power bases

I have been working at NIKE full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Sport Company, product at good prices

Cons

No say, no risk taking, no "simplify and go" which is one of the maxims of Nike. No real relationships but all based on internal politics.
Not the Company to go if you want to grow and learn.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become less political, promote on merit, discipline the "cliques".

    I have been working at NIKE part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    **Growth (only if your enter the company as an assistant manager plus) (or if your primary job is to adulate(brown nose) to as many upper management as you can find)

    Fun work staff - with changing schedules and seasonal hires, you can meet a lot of interesting coworkers.

    Opportunity to travel - company has many events and actively sends employees to different events***(fully paid)

    Casual work environment and dress code

    Cons

    No Growth - if you start as an "Athlete" show talent, hard work, dedication and get a degree in the management or marketing field, the company will hire outside personnel for advanced positions.

    Management - management will consistently lie to employees about company policies (HR dept. however is very transparent and honest)

    Management (*at Garden City) creates an adversarial environment between management and employees and also employees vs employees (competitions via NPS surveys of which there are no rewards towards top employees)

    No benefits for Part-time Under employees and very expensive for non-management Full-time and Part-time Over employees.

    Management expects unlimited availability from employees for part-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent and honest with employees.

    Great brand, horrible corporate backstabbing and posturing

    I have been working at NIKE full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is no greater sports brand than Nike. Legions of endorsed professional and college athletes, innovative products, and university-like campus office grounds.

    Cons

    Every single person employed there is out for his or her own gain. I have seen dozens of backstabbing examples, and teamwork is not evident throughout all divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reinvent how team leaders are selected, be careful how promotions are handled. Sometimes it's the quiet, hardworking type that others need to look up to. There is no room for ego to raise that proverbial bar of success.
