    I worked at NIKE part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nike holds a lot of events which employees can be a part of, room for growth and development depending how you apply yourself. Meet many great people as well. Benefits are good, if your are full time.

    Cons

    Pay is average, not outstanding considering its a huge company. Hours are hard to come by, based on business needs. Use to be fun to work for, parties, employee events, better perks but have noticed a decline in "employee appreciation".

    Pros

    As far as retail goes, this was easily one of the best jobs I have ever had. It is a great atmosphere and you sell an awesome product.

    Cons

    Typical retail frustrations. I have nothing negative to say about my time as an employee with Nike.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enjoyed my time with Nike. I left only seeking a greater management opportunity.

    Pros

    definitely the environment while working for Niketown was a fun experience. I always loved the marketing involved with Nike products. It always seems so advanced and futuristic.

    Cons

    Sometimes working in the retail shops can get a bit slow. There is not much flexibility other than helping customers find shoes, or whatever products they need. You are limited to a few responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was cool. I wish I got to meet more of the corporate individuals

    Pros

    Innovative, constantly growing company. Positive environment and people with passion for the brand. A lot of growth opportunity. Real team feeling. Shorts and t-shirts all day. Good Work/Life balance. Youth is the energy to the company and work staff. Always going to "Do the Right Thing." Good communication as a company. Great people to work with and for.

    Cons

    Upper management is 50/50, some good some bad. Still learning and doesn't have the answers to everything. New to Retail so still need to implement policies for retail sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in training. Investigate upper management for performance beyond numbers. Team culture affects store success.

    Pros

    Great company for work life balance. The company offers great perks and has a lot to offer the employees. Salary and benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    if you don't know someone to get you the job it is ten times harder to get the job. Value of knowledge not as high as knowing someone in the business.
