I worked at NIKE full-time (less than a year)

Pros

It's a large company so every experience is based on the department you're in. It can be hit or miss, but my 'category' was fantastic. The people were great and management was right there in the trenches with us.

Cons

Depending on what projects are underway, evening or weekend work is necessary, but no more than anywhere else.

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

    Pros

    Nice discount at 30% as a sales associate.

    Flexible hours

    Nice managers who give alot of chances for tardiness

    Easy work

    Tax-deducted or almost free clothing and shoes every quarter

    Alot of young adults

    Motivational attitude.

    Cons

    Athletes get most of the grunt work

    During high volume and traffic managers lock down in the office and basically do nothing

    During low volume and traffic managers lock down in the office and basically do nothing

    Managers who don't know how to efficiently operate and require assistance from other athletes to do their job (btw, those athletes still have their own relative tasks to perform as well.)

    Not alot of incentive to move up in the company

    No commission or recognition for hard work

    No incentive besides an extra $5 on a bonus check to work for loss prevention in finding missing items

    Sketchy corporate history with continuing human rights violations that the company persists in denying

    Preferential treatment in giving hours away to some athletes

    Hour scheduling is rigged. Some managers take away from the salary pool by cutting hours for other managers and athletes and take that money for themselves.

    Hour scheduling can be notoriously off forcing associates to document every time they punch in or punch out. Disparity in paycheck amount can be up to as much as 75% of the time worked for that 2 week paycheck window.

    In reference to the last statement above, the scheduling manager has nothing else to do besides just this. Very disappointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is basically a popularity contest. You cant move up if you have a good idea or a way to change things to even make the company more money. Unless its cutthroat and abusive like most corporate policies, there really is nothing you can change.

    I worked at NIKE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    CULTURE: generally, it's amazing. It's the most open, liberal, & fun environment, which is surprising for a major corporation. However, I can only really speak to Brand Marketing (which tends to have its party/celebratory perks)

    Cons

    POLITICAL GAME: It's all about who you know. Make sure you have a good mentor or boss, otherwise you'll get nowhere. Too many times I've seen the most egomaniac & fake people rise up the ladder -- because they know whose ass to kiss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read your team. Take the time to sit down with each person, get to know know them, make them feel a part of the team. The more they feel they can trust & look up to you, the more productive they'll be.
