    Pros

    Swoosh Account! Access to Company Stores. Hands on with the newest products. Focus on personal development. Sense of team.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity to move up. Low wages compared to other retail brands. Managers have a sense of entitlement and think they are much better than anyone else. Managers leave lots of decisions up to the employee, reprimand if wrong decision.

    I have been working at NIKE as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    This is, by far, one of the best organizations that I have worked for in my career. Although I am an ETW (contractor) at WHQ, I am treated as an equal. I certainly understand why I work with folks who have 20 plus years with NIKE.

    Cons

    Difficult to get hired on full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue fostering the creativity of your most valued asset, and never second guess the power of brand! Management at this company is fantastic, built with true leaders, believers and facilitators.

    Pros

    You're working for the best sports company in the world!
    If you love sports or have a passion to be around sports minded people and products, this is the place for you!
    Every day results in something new or different, which keeps you on your toes and never results in a boring routine.
    Co-workers are awesome and everyone seems to get along.
    The best part is working for a company that is constantly changing and innovating.
    If you put the time in, you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    It's retail so your schedule is never very consistent.
    Again it's retail, so be expected to help all kinds of customers..those who are happy and those who are not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people the way you would want to be treated. What you put into people is what you will get back in return.
