    Pros

    Great company for work life balance. The company offers great perks and has a lot to offer the employees. Salary and benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    if you don't know someone to get you the job it is ten times harder to get the job. Value of knowledge not as high as knowing someone in the business.

    Pros

    Strong corporate culture and values. Great sense of belonging to a team. Pay according to job title is fairly decent. Lots of benefits and perks.

    Cons

    At my facility there are only five employees so it's hard to say this about the company as a whole. Not very much room for promotion at my location, unless I move to Memphis or Oregon. My job demands that I go above and beyond the tasks of my job title. I would say my proper job title should be Logistics Specialist which would call for a significant pay increase. I do however, get paid pretty well compared to the average salary of an Inventory Control in my area. We get a good sized bonus once a year which is based of off PSP (profit sharing program). Management is very caring about the well-being of the employees. Plenty of PTO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be more knowledgeable of the tasks performed by their employees. I learned most of my job through emails and phone calls to separate departments in other states.

    Benefits are very important to Nike community. The pay may be a little low based on how much you go through but the end the benefits, people and life-work balance pays off.

    Cons

    Pay is to low for the amount of work

    I have been working at NIKE full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people. Best brand in the world. Great amenities for your kids like childcare and swim lessons. Really fast paced and exciting projects. Mark Parker knows what he is doing. Nike is really progressive on gay rights and I loved athlete asterisk, which is if you have a body you are an athlete! You will meet world famous athletes on a fairly regular basis. We have hit bonus every year I have worked here. Nike on your resume opens a lot of doors.

    Cons

    There are some negative middle management individuals in Digital Tech that are creating a war path behind them. Chris Satchell has a good vision and is a good leader, but I don't know how quickly he can root out a culture of hiding information, bullying and sidelining some really good people by a few very bad apples. It's a total boys network. If you work in Digital Tech, it's like you are second class citizen and that makes me sad for Nike. They never promote within. It's total chaos, but it is kind of stablizing over time. You will work overnights and very long hours to make up for management's lack of pro-active planning in earlier phases of projects. Nike is a "yes" culture, so there is not any true prioritizing of road maps--they just abuse employees to get it all done. They are quick to remind you that Nike gets 20,000 resumes every day and you are completely disposable. Digital Tech recycles contractors as a way of having fall guys for full time employees that do not perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall Nike Inc. management is good. Digital Tech needs to look at retention rates and do exit interviews about why people are leaving. There is so much potential, but change is needed to attract and keep good talent.
