    Pros

    You feel good saying :"i work for Nike" what a self esteem boost.

    Cons

    they will drain you and the min you need something toss you out. You will work hard on a project so someone else can take credit.
    everyone is despicable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at NIKE full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    People - and the culture.
    There is a very relaxed culture that allows free flowing innovative ideas, this is very cool ..
    The company offers a wide variety of alternatives that allow a person to maintain a work-life balance.
    There is strong support for people to take care of themselves - if you love sports this aspect of Nike will be very appealing!!

    Cons

    The company has grown and abandon many of the 'things' that have made it what it is today - there is a much stronger corporate tone than existed 10 years ago..
    Everything has become (under) budget driven - Just Do It have shifted from a motivational mantra to more of a whipping stick (more like Just Get it Done...)
