    The company is losing its family first attitude and turning into an uncaring corporate giant.

    Pros

    Amazing company atmosphere. My manager was invested in my growth and wanted to see me do well. As long as you work extremely hard you will succeed. I was there in the summer so there were company parties every Friday and work ended at 12 pm!

    Cons

    Long hours, but if you are like me and love what you do, there are no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    I have been working at NIKE part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management treats employees well, pay is above average for retail, great discounts (add employee discounts on top of discount for items on sale)

    Cons

    Most coworkers are just high schoolers wanting a job to have money, not a lot TRULY care about customers receiving the first class service they deserve for choosing our products. Even occasionally management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring just anybody to fill staffing needs. This company deserves the very best for it's consumers!

    I worked at NIKE as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun and exciting place to work as an intern with a lot of creative, athletic, and motivated associated within the company. Stunning campus, lots of half days on fridays in the summer, and a very strong culture towards all things Nike and all things sports/marketing/performance product innovation.

    Cons

    A large enough company that some initiatives get slowed down by managers micromanagers teams below them. Not necessarily the company's fault and is definitely different within the departments and teams at Nike. So many of the associates come from Oregon or Oregon State at times Nike lacks diversity in that area.

    Advice to Management

    Great company, keep providing associates time to pursue passion projects for Nike to continue to grow grassroots innovation from all departments.

    You love the campus and the type of people here if you grew up with sports. Such an energetic, competitive workplace where smart people collaborate to come up with inventive answers to challenges they been shown.

    I have been working at NIKE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Sexy culture. Stock only goes up. Free gym at IT campuses.

    Cons

    Some management can ruin your experience. IT culture is way different then the rest of Nike; segregated both physically and culturally. Can't use that free gym because management is too controlling about where you are when.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what Nike is about.


  11. Security Department is a Joke

    I worked at NIKE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of great Co-workers. Rest of Nike is great!

    Cons

    The management is back stabbing and sets people up to fail so they can write you up and get fired. Always changing shifts to meet the "business needs" which means you can be there for 10+ years and still be sent to Graveyard on a whim. If they don't like you, you have no chance of a future in Nike Security. Good luck moving on to other portions of the Security department unless you worked for one of the 3 letter government companies, no matter what your background is. Do you self a favor and stay away from this department.
