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.

    Pros

    Great employee discount and really easy to shine if you're a hard worker.

    Cons

    Poor work ethic amongst colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in helping associates grow as professionals (even if this is a retail position). People work harder when they're working towards something.
