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

Pros

CULTURE: generally, it's amazing. It's the most open, liberal, & fun environment, which is surprising for a major corporation. However, I can only really speak to Brand Marketing (which tends to have its party/celebratory perks)

Cons

POLITICAL GAME: It's all about who you know. Make sure you have a good mentor or boss, otherwise you'll get nowhere. Too many times I've seen the most egomaniac & fake people rise up the ladder -- because they know whose ass to kiss.

Advice to Management

Read your team. Take the time to sit down with each person, get to know know them, make them feel a part of the team. The more they feel they can trust & look up to you, the more productive they'll be.

    I worked at NIKE full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Nike Campus is spectacular and growing and has excellent facilities.
    The company remains extremely innovative and puts out exceptional products. It should continue growing and remain the premium sports brand in the world.
    Great work life balance if you are looking for that.
    One of the top employers in Oregon from a pay and benefits perspective.

    Cons

    The company went through a significant layoff in 2009. It eliminated many senior manager and director roles and then promoted some workers into managerial positions that weren't ready to be effective managers. This has led to a host of issues among the staff including low morale and unsatisfied employees.
    It's a young person's company who's population dominated by the young set. Ageism may be an issue for some older employees who are 40+ years old.

    Advice to Management

    Help your managers develop the necessary skills to be effective leaders.
