    Great Employees, Incompetent Leaders

    I worked at NIKE

    Pros

    All the non-work parts of "working" at Nike are great! Flexible hours, beautiful campus, great workout facilities, lots of opportunity for social interaction (e.g. happy hours, sports teams, on-campus events, volunteer days). Most of the people that work there are passionate and competent.

    Cons

    Management is pathetic. When I was promoted to a management role (without any consideration for my people management skills), I received zero training and support from HR or my own supervisor. I was allowed/forced to wallow and fail. I think I could be a better manager with more focused and dedicated development and support. My experience must be typical because every manager I had at Nike (6 in 6 years) was a horrible and incompetent leader. However, the blame is with HR and the corporate leadership to allow lousy managers to be retained and even promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Nike has 11 Maxims, but I can personally provide dozens of examples where leaders have violated each of them, repeatedly. Nike was built on passion, innovation, and trust (remember that handshake between Bill and Phil?), but has very quickly destroyed the special Nike culture to save some short-term costs and put up the smoke and mirrors for Wall Street.

    I have been working at NIKE

    Pros

    In general, I'd say I'm proud to work there, and have learned a lot. Definitely a great place to learn. You kind of learn through osmosis here.

    Cons

    There's a little bit of cronyism among Nike, and a little bit of politics. I suppose that's with any job though, especially of this size. It is what you make of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really, really try to take more notice of the junior level employees. These are the ones that will be the future of the company, and their ideas and opinions matter.
