    Pros

    * cool products * fun events * great discount * nice headquarters * nice people * good food * good technical resources

    Cons

    * nearly all jobs paid under market * start most recruiters off in temp positions with no benefits for 6-12 months * micromanaging culture * Most recruiters & HR don't physically work in the buildings/departments they support * excessive job requirements for retail positions and excessive number of interviews per candidate as well for jobs that pay way less than the competition * very difficult for store employees to move into corporate (no grow-from-within strategy) * nearly zero women in top management * "jock/cheerleader" mentality that often discriminates against those who speak out or suggest changes * german management translates poorly to american employees * disconnected from the community compared to competition * 'you should feel lucky to work for us' mentality

    I worked at adidas Group

    Pros

    Good full time benefits package
    30% off discount
    Customer base is diverse
    Meeting Pro athletes on a regular basis

    Cons

    Constant corporate changes, not being communicated quickly enough to stores
    Growth program is mandatory to entire staff. Spent a lot wasted payroll developing staff who had no desire to grow.
    No part time benefits
    Low staff moral
    Marketing has opportunity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are just as important to adidas as are customers. Please survey employees to truly understand where there is opportunity. Happy employees generate business. Marketing needs to work hand in hand with stores to generate additional traffic flow. Corporate communication should be consistent. Staff growth program should be optional so management team can fully develop those who truly want to grow.
