I have been working at NIKE full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

So Much Fun! Feel young at heart working there. Some fun events and opportunities, and creativity is rewarded.

Cons

once you are in a role it is easy to feel pigeonholed. You must spend a lot of time networking and selling yourself. Sometimes we have meetings on meetings on meetings...with not a lot of communication.

Advice to Management

Look at your internal employees and facilitate communication among work groups - many are doing the same work or not sharing great ideas. Great vision, just increase communication.

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

    Pros

    Great peers
    Great benefits
    Cool Heritage about the company and how it was founded
    Great products

    Cons

    Terrible Leadership in HR
    Passive Aggressive Culture
    Alot of Egos to deal with

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who challenge the status quo. Get away from "well we have always done it this way." When Nike was founded computers didn't exist. Change is good. Don't hire those who will just agree with you.
