    I worked at NIKE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great physical work environment. Campus offers opportunity to work across functions and regions.

    Cons

    Nike has become too big to care about their employees. Managers are focused on the bottom line at the expense of employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Managers have lost the passion to do what's best for their employees. Nike used to be about doing the right thing and being courageous enough to make mistakes. Nike is much more about following rules and not sticking your neck out. So many stories about employees being afraid of trying something new and innovative. Managers have become micro-managers, and employees are being held back.

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

    Pros

    This company is extremely creative and forward thinking. If you like innovation and have drive to be the best in your market Nike is your one stop shop.

    Cons

    Lack of promotion unless working at WHQ.

    Do not work in Nike Retail if you are just entering the company. No upward mobility!

    Serious lack of communication at the management level. The Swoosh drives the brand not the people.

    Advice to Management

    Pick better quality candidates for management. Have people who know how to connect on all different levels of business especially communication.
