    I have been working at NIKE full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Tremendous company ethos and a highly sought after brand which made it a pleasure to sell. A fast paced, high energy environment and a company that cares deeply about its employees. An example: full medical benefits from day one. Great people to work with and a beautiful, state-of-the- art store environment in which any employee would be proud to work.

    Cons

    Long hours are the name of the game in retail and this position is no exception. Unless you are comfortable with 12 hour days from start to finish, this is probably not the situation for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attract more college educated athletes who truly know and appreciate the history of the NIKE brand from firsthand experience in the athletic arena. Recognize these individuals and help them seek greater, higher level advancement in the company after they have learned the retail essence of the company.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, Nice discount, Refreshed floor displays, Bonuses, Strong salary. the people that work there come from different walks of life.

    Cons

    I feel that nike is starting to lose its vision. in part to thirst to retain its position at the top. Quality over quantity. Rather keep quality and quanity at a premium level.
