    Pros

    The Nike campus and community are second to none. People love working here. Work and home life balance is more achievable here than other companies - family time is encouraged. The employee gym is great - best in class. Love seeing major athletes on campus. Nike does care tremendously about its' people and makes the extra effort to hire back good people they may have previously had to lay off.

    Cons

    Too much documentation and not enough hands on 'doing' for some positions. Lots of positions are actually portions of jobs with many hand offs - kind of like whisper down the lane. Rarely does one work on something from concept to launch. Everyone is too replaceable. Many feel that way and move on quickly to something else just when they got the hang of their previous position.
    Weather here is worse than they tell you, so be prepared and bring rain boots.

    Advice to Management

    Teams could be so much more efficient. Apparel could be coordinated with footwear and accessories to drive more sales and make consumers happier with ensemble looks. There is a lot of waste in terms of redundant resources due to walled silos between divisions and highly competitive managers that seem not wanting to share. People in the same buildings don't share much information at all - not even to join each others' holiday parties. There needs to be more team integration departments - maybe a team of experts knowledge bank that mentors. There are a few people who are patent happy - they don't check out information and feasibility before racing to file or are too quick to tag onto others' work for credit. Lengthy time lines can be frustrating to green light projects - mangers change multiple times during process and wheels need to be reinvented constantly.
