If you don't work at WHQ then you have problem.

Sales Athlete (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at NIKE part-time for more than a year

ProsThis company is extremely creative and forward thinking. If you like innovation and have drive to be the best in your market Nike is your one stop shop.

ConsLack of promotion unless working at WHQ.

Do not work in Nike Retail if you are just entering the company. No upward mobility!

Serious lack of communication at the management level. The Swoosh drives the brand not the people.

Advice to Senior ManagementPick better quality candidates for management. Have people who know how to connect on all different levels of business especially communication.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Dissapointing

Specialist (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

I worked at NIKE full-time for more than a year

Pros401K, ESPP, Medical Ok.

ConsTerrible pay. Room for growth but not due to hard working but depending on who you know...if you know what I mean!
Full time employess don't even get 34 hours.
The funny part is your availability has to be open for them with a minimum of 52 hours.
No balance between life/work.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop whipping your employees, all you do is talk about sales, conversion and more sales.
Treat people with respect.
Some of your coaches really deserve to be fired.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great place to work

Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
Beaverton, OR

I worked at NIKE full-time for more than 5 years

ProsI worked at NIKE for 7 years and loved every minute of it. It's exciting and creative, offers great benefits, has an amazing campus with 2 gyms and tons of amenities. You work with the most intelligent creative people and are provided with the latest and greatest technology and tech support to get your job done.

ConsLong hours and intense work environment. There is a reason there are so many amenities: gym, store, cleaners, hair salon, etc - you will be spending a lot of time there.
