I worked at NIKE full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Fairly egalitarian and open culture
- Sports oriented, great for someone who like to be exposed to sports on a regular basis
- Adventurous spirits will find areas to serve as their creative outlets

Cons

Pay in Taiwan and other offshore offices are based on local salary standards, which usually means decent, but not great pay.

As development manager, much time is spent commuting to the factories located 45 minutes and 1.5 hours away, respectively. Although there is company shuttle bus, the commute really takes away time from doing actual work, and often make after-hour e-mailing at home mandatory.

Work conditions, facilities, and overall environment at offshore offices are not comparable with that of HQ in Oregon. There is little chance of interacting with the designers, marketing team, and star athletes.

Footwear is also a labor intensive industry that will inevitably shift to countries with lower cost of labor. If the focus of your job is in manufacturing or product development, relocation to countries like Indonesia, Vietnam, China, India, among others, is a real possibility.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits (if you're full time), employee discount, flexible hours. Most people are fun to work with.

    Cons

    There's a Kool-aid mentality from some people - especially those at world headquarters (and those who wish they were). Everyone loves to use useless business jargon. Corporate will sometimes start initiatives, not follow through with them, and quietly drop them.

    Most people are great to work with, but there are a few people out there in management positions who are simply impossible to work under.
