    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at NIKE

    Pros

    Good energy, as you'd expect of the brand
    The industry leader, with vision and budget to Think Big
    Many people spend their entire career there, able to move among different roles
    Portland is great place to live

    Cons

    Pay is below market rates, but if you're relocating from a place like NYC, Singapore, London, you'll find cost of living to be much lower in Portland.

    Pros

    discount is great, great team environment, not on commission -- good thing for this type of retail, you have comprehensive training before starting on the floor, will be knowledgeable about workout gear/working out in general

    Cons

    lack of communication from management, hard to request days off, a lot of mix ups around scheduling, tough to juggle retail work and being a full time student

    Pros

    -Very laid back atmosphere
    -Managers are friendly
    -Discount was great

    Cons

    Try to work on busier days. Slower day seems like your shift takes twice as long. It is retail, so you have to be capable of adapting to the customer you are working with. There are many types of people that you will run into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More rotation through positions (i.e. rotate from floor to fitting rooms to cashier etc)
