Great for undergrads, not so much for mid career professionals

I have been working at NIKE as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Discounted product is amazing, but the best deals are only saved for actual employees, contractors not included. Really cant beat access to the Beaverton employee store!

Cons

The "this is how we have always done it" approach still rules, just wish the organization was as innovative as their products. Contractors are definitely held at a disadvantage and if you want that illusive "black badge" be prepared to take a lot of steps back in your career to get it.

Advice to Management

Source quality external candidates instead of promoting mediocrity from within

    I have been working at NIKE full-time

    Pros

    Amazing company, a lot of growth "potential" Potential being the key word.

    Cons

    Depending what dept. you work in, it may feel like you have nothing to do with Nike. This is the case for me and therefore all the bells and whistles that come with working at WHQ are not something I can take advantage of.

    Advice to Management

    Stop passing "duds" around in management, get rid of people dragging the ship down. Take a good look at what is happening under the leadership, it's indicative of what is happening at the leadership level. Don't expect that 360s are occurring or that you will get honest feedback in them. There are a lot of politics that prevent people from being able to speak honestly. You have to look for yourself and don't take things at face value in what you hear from your management.
