I have been working at NIKE full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Sport Company, product at good prices

Cons

No say, no risk taking, no "simplify and go" which is one of the maxims of Nike. No real relationships but all based on internal politics.
Not the Company to go if you want to grow and learn.

Advice to Management

Become less political, promote on merit, discipline the "cliques".

    I have been working at NIKE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is no greater sports brand than Nike. Legions of endorsed professional and college athletes, innovative products, and university-like campus office grounds.

    Cons

    Every single person employed there is out for his or her own gain. I have seen dozens of backstabbing examples, and teamwork is not evident throughout all divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Reinvent how team leaders are selected, be careful how promotions are handled. Sometimes it's the quiet, hardworking type that others need to look up to. There is no room for ego to raise that proverbial bar of success.
