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

Pros

Awesome sports culture, summer hours, beautiful campus. Nike is a company rich in history and cool stories and frankly some pretty cool people run the company. Athletes come visit campus regularly and Nike treats their employees to some pretty cool appearances during the summer. One of the most amazing campuses I have ever visited, and it's even expanding.

Cons

Need to network to get ahead. It's not what you know but who you know. By the time a job is posted, most times they already have someone in mind, so you must network in order to land a job. Awesome workout facilities, but we need to pay to use them.

Advice to Management

Make gym membership free (seems like a no brainer for a sports company promoting wellness). My department is stagnant in leadership and is a turnover machine.
