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

    Pros

    If you enjoy sports and fashion it's an awesome company to work for. Solid discount, and great benefits.

    Cons

    The company talks a big game when it comes to internal promotion, but most available positions are filled from the outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow the company from within.

    Pros

    The product is amazing and the people are as well. The work environment is something special and provides a relaxing experience to their employees.

    Cons

    Not heavy on promoting from within the company, like to leave very skilled people in the positions that they are in rather than give them added responsibility.

    Pros

    Working in a retail store for Adidas was a great oppurtunity. I ended my experience their for personal reasons nothing with the company. They treat you right and everyone is so friendly. My area the area and district managers get o know everyone.

    Cons

    Nothing was wrong with the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing.... Also Store I believe it is 6183 in Pottstown PA the store manger is Jessica Harrison- Harper. Keep her and do not let her leave. She knows how to run the store and keep it fun for the employees. She deserves to move up in the company.
