    I have been working at NIKE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Progressive mindset, big on family and work/life balance. The benefits are amazing. Hot yoga during my lunch break? Yes please!

    Cons

    The very laid back attitude means you must be a self-starter, and some people don't ever seam to be
    'checked' on this. There are some people in roles who are not qualified to be there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lack of quality leadership skills in many of the people who are put in leadership roles.

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

    Pros

    Very team oriented, you get bonuses for going over budgets for that day, room for advancement in the company

    Cons

    Not enough hours to actually make a difference paycheck wise. When it is off months, you are lucky to get $200 for 2 weeks worth of work! Definitely not the job for someone who is trying to live off of one job! Even when they dont have the hours to give out to their current employees, they will still hire new people! We cant survive in the month of September & October on 12 hours a week!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GIVE YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYEES THE HOURS SO THEY CAN SUPPORT THEIR FAMILIES & PAY THEIR BILLS!!!!!!

    Overall, liked my experience at Nike.

    I worked at NIKE

    Pros

    I am really into sports and the athletic culture so working here was a really cool experience. It was seasonal so I learned a lot and got to meet a lot of great people. Not sure if things have changed since I've worked there but overall great team.

    Cons

    They weren't too flexible after the schedule was made, in regards to trading shifts and what not if something came up. But nothing else too negative.

    Manager encouraged no OT pay

    I worked at NIKE for more than a year

    Pros

    Pretty nice environment, running trail around main campus, great cafeterias, close to shopping and access to employee store.

    Cons

    My first meeting with my team lead revolved around OT. He told me when he worked there as a contractor, he never billed for OT. He spoke to me and other members on the team, trying to get us to not bill for OT, despite working long hours. Also saw instances where they would take advantage of people on a VISA and also not pay fair wage or OT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage the leads better. They should not be encouraging people to NOT get paid for OT. Also saw instances where they would take advantage of people on a VISA and also not pay fair wage or OT.

    great benefits in terms of significant discounts on apparel, footwear and equipment

    career growth opportunities, especially in Prague are not so great. some corporate workflows are also not transparent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    clear sweatshop statement, clear statement on ethical treatment of animals (mainly where does the leather on our shoes come from?)

    I worked at NIKE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    nice sneakers and clothes as present when special events, good schedules from monday to friday, they are good with their employees, make you feel part of the company, good discounts and other benefits. the company is good i all aspects and liked a lot to work here.

    Cons

    maybe because the company is so small in my country, the opportunities to grow are very limited, but again this might be because of the size and due the team is so small. the salary can be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    re think the salary of the employees, is not that as bad as in other companies, but still if you compare with the salary of the same position in the USA is a huge difference.

    Pros

    Fun Environment, flexible hours, great discount on nike products. The managers were great, co-workers were great. overall loved this job.

    Cons

    The pay isn't all that great. There wasn't a whole lot of training. the job was only part time. They don't hire full time employees at all unless you become a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They were all great.
