    Pros

    Getting discounts and Nike culture is great! Facilities are state of the art. Stock keeps going up and they have a decent stock purchase program.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. They loose good people because of it. They charge their employees way too much for the gym facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your all star employees!

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the most talented people on the planet, surrounded by sport and some of the most amazing shoes on the planet.

    Cons

    Product creation is very demanding on your time. The schedule is crunched, which forces you to act quickly without having all the information you need.

    Pros

    Nice brand. Pay is on low end but the added bonus structure really helps. Lovely campus. Great food. Can be fun at times but always need to watch your back!

    Cons

    I had six directors/bosses during my time. Only one was decent early on. The other five bosses were smart technically but absolutely horrible at managing and inspiring staff. In fact, they were often rude, disconnected, nit picky about all things that where not even part of my job. The reviews on the CFE were a joke. If you complained about a boss to HR then usually it would hurt your own reputation the most and your boss would actually get glorified even more because they would put all the blame on employees rather than themselves. Back stabbing was going on at all times it seems. Prior employee I managed slowly defamed all others in the department, including me, to help himself look better to the bad bosses. In the end, that said employee, stole my job and got promoted to a director role hence creating another bad boss. It' was a trend setting nightmare of bad bosses with no hope on the horizon of the company doing anything about it so I left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting and hiring good ol' boys and or only ultra technical saavy skilled managers or directors. Try hiring managers that have both technical skills PLUS a strong history of proven positive management/communication/inspirational skills. Don't believe all the gossip. Many good employees get passed over for promotions because their so called friends/employees or bad directors throw them under the bus to get promoted. It's pretty sad how much I heard this happening in so many departments. One bad political snake-like employee feeding info to a bad director can ruin/sour multiple employees self worth and inspirations.


  8. Fast paced. Moving forward yet all about its people development.

    Pros

    Great work environment. The employees is what makes it a family like atmosphere. Training is always insightful and helping customers find the right product...priceless

    Cons

    Retail work schedule. To move up the ladder is a bit of a waiting game.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop people.

    Pros

    Generally laid back with nice people. They pay pretty well once you add in the bonus and benefits. Depending on your director they have flex time and regular telecommuting days. They are big and very stable.

    Cons

    Nike is very inconsistent with regards to directors, some being very good while others horrible. You start with only 3 weeks combined vacation and sick time (decent directors allow you to work from home when sick to help mitigate this). Some teams have the one-up mentality of staying late.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your directors and watch the ones that drive off employees. Either give real sick time or up your combined time off, 3 weeks is pathetic for our industry.
