    Great people but coordination between departments needs improvement

    Senior Applications Engineer (Former Employee)
    Beaverton, OR

    ProsMany very talented people and the culture is great. As a contractor, I found the compensation to be fairly competitive. Nice campus with various restaurants and food carts for lunch.

    ConsThe digital/technology arm seems to be lacking an overall vision. I noticed times when various teams would work independently of each other, creating conflict when trying to integrate solutions together. This caused unnecessary stress, discouragement, and significant waste of funds. Some employees have very strong egos and are difficult to work with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs a contract software engineer working with web and mobile solutions, I saw very poor decisions being made by management. Nike needs to build an overall plan for digital initiatives an stick to it. Too many times I've seen plans change and tons of time and effort gone to waste. Please do what you can to get everyone to work together.

    So-So Retail Job with Great Coworkers

    Athlete (Former Employee)
    Clinton, CT

    ProsThe people you work with are generally happy and mesh well with others
    Discounts on merchandise and an extra 10% on specified days
    Learning how to communicate well with others
    Employee resources can be accessed through the web/mobile applications

    ConsThere are polar opposites in the lower-level management, e.g. half of the managers are outstanding while the latter are awful
    Politics with temporary positions and promotions
    Boring work

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

    Nike...

    Director of Analytics (Current Employee)
    Beaverton, OR

    Prosgreat campus, cool work environment.

    Consoffice culture is very political and can tire out the teams, if you come from a big city, Portland is a quite a change and never really got used to it. Also, per the work environment, weekends, nights, it's all about pleasing leadership, and proving your value to remain. Teams often don't collaborate as well, they often try and get their own 'wins' and it just creates a strange work environment to be a part of. And a culture where they are honesty afraid to fail, anything that wasn't amazing is likely never discussed, not certain how you become that much better if you can't discuss what didn't work.

    Not the worst retail job in the world.

    Nike Athlete (Former Employee)
    Round Rock, TX

    ProsThe discounts are pretty awesome. Being a part, albeit a very very small part, of such a cultural powerhouse with its extensive history is a cool feeling as well. You get 2 shirts and 2 pairs of basketball shorts/pants for free every 90 days, and a free pair of shoes every 6 months while you work there.

    ConsThe pay is really low. Very frustrating to find out a new hire gets paid more than those who have been around for over a year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive raises to those who work well. Allow athletes who show leadership skills to be considered for management positions. Management positions should not be given to those who know less than regular sales workers.

    Not somewhere to set up shop at

    Nike Athlete (Current Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    ProsNike is a great place to work if you are looking for a team atmosphere in the workplace. There is always opportunities to go to events with people from work. Plus the discount is pretty hard to beat.

    ConsNot a huge opportunity for growth in the company unless you position yourself in Oregon. A lot of the managers have been shifting around departments for years and will never get higher in the company ranks. Also while the discount is great, it is a shame that there aren't more sale opportunities for the people who spend most of their checks back into the company.
