    Pros

    A lot of autonomy, very innovative company, and value employee's growth. The benefit package is very good. The best thing is that you learn new things everyday.

    Cons

    Job function a bit of ambiguous. The most important thing is to get comfortable with the frequent changes in the organization. The matrix structure makes the jobs very demanding, because there will be multiple managers for one role.

    Extremely well run, marketing machine. Excellent work life balance.

    Very large multi-dimension matrix organization is time consuming to navigate and feels excessively bureaucratic. Decision quality is good, but decision speed is slow. Be prepared to slow down.

    Pros

    Absolutely love the benefits, stock purchase plan, and campus.

    Cons

    Managers are very set in their ways and feel it's inconvenient to make changes. If you're young, driven, and eager to grow, expect to work twice as hard for half the pay of your senior co-workers. If you're a lifer and have been doing the same job for 15 years, congrats on getting away with doing the bare minimum and getting a bigger raise than the rest of us. There are no consequences and no rewards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The way younger employees are treated is really killing their brand passion. How do you expect employees to have goals without any opportunities to fulfill them?

    Endless promotion/hiring of bad bosses by hiring only "technically" smart people that have ZERO leadership skills.

    I worked at NIKE full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, however, people seem stressed out with the politics and extra time it takes to make something move or happen.

    Cons

    Employees that gossip seem to rise up because poor managers believe that gossip so good people are rated unfairly in the CFE process. I cried a lot towards the end. Never felt appreciated for the good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire REAL managers that can actually lead and inspire! They may not have ALL the exact technical skills but they know how to LEAD a team, inspire PASSION and RESULTS. Good managers grow employees - not glorify mistakes.

    I worked at NIKE

    Pros

    Great campus, and opportunity to enjoy good facilities. Certain departments have excellent opportunities for growth and employees in those areas receive appropriate remuneration and are enabled to create significant value.

    Cons

    Inefficient, non-standard processes, slow to change. Managers do not understand what they manage. Huge disparity in remuneration, and only small annual increases no matter how much work is put in, how vital the work is or how your role changes. Management takes all credit for the good, even when not involved, but pass down their failings; lack of good work ethic and leadership, and overall focus on pet projects. Passive aggressive bullying takes a toll. Penny wise and pound foolish. Those excellent at the job are pigeon-holed, those who are not are promoted out.

    I worked at NIKE as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good hourly pay, housing is paid for, and travel to Nike WHQ to & from is paid for.
    The campus feels like a college campus, with two fitness centers, multiple soccer fields and running trails throughout
    Weekly training/learning sessions for the intern group are great.

    Cons

    Sometimes felt like I was being underutilized, but it's up to you to go talk with other employees about other parts of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, but figure out how to integrate new technologies to improve business processes

    Pros

    Great company culture. Supports individual development. Competitive at times. High motivation from management. Base pay + perks = great compensation for internship experience.

    Cons

    There was very limited entry level positions available for interns seeking full-time employment after graduation. Experience expectations for open entry level positions is high.
