    Bucket list opportunity with a global leader

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's the adult version of Disneyland, especially if you have a sports background. Unmatched global brand with the ability and willingness to aggressively pursue new opportunities.

    ConsNavigating the cross-functional matrix can be nearly impossible at times

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnbelievable place to work, but like most uber-large companies, has lots of dysfunctional org behaviors. Roles and responsibilities are unclear, leading to a lot of confusion and inefficiency. Too many chiefs and not enough indians.

    Great culture, but could do with more integration

    Compliance (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsSupportive teams who really work hard at doing the right thing, Nike culture is strong at WHQ

    ConsNike culture is not well cascaded down to other Nike entities, promotion based on who the boss likes rather than merit

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote on achievements and merit, be open about the company's plans

    Nike Factory head coach " store manager"

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou get to wear running shoes and shorts to work every day. New pair of shoes every 6 month for staff dress. 30% discount even on markdown product,.

    ConsThey keep hiring manager from other companies and they bring along all the bad traits for where the left to come to a better company like NIKE. Then they change the rules so Nike is becoming more like any other retailer. They are taking away the perks one by one.

    Advice to Senior Management3 weeks of PTO the first year. 5 week sabbatical after 10 year and then every 5 years you get to take another.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    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

    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
