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

Pros

Direct superior gives lots of power and autonomy to run the business (same can't be said for other departments) and is all about pro-work life balance ( though, again not practiced company wide ) Have a great working team and the only reason why I still head to work everyday.

Cons

Too process driven, losing business opportunities in the process. Too many chefs running the show, too many reporting lines. Lots of politicking between senior management. Matrix reporting structure which fuels the politicking and overtly power hungry individuals. Too much power and influence given to certain individuals and departments and because of their unscrupulous ways to create a mini fiefdom in the company, many a good employee has left or driven away.

Advice to Management

Visit your stores. Speak with your frontline staff & middle management. Listen to what they have to say. Stop the games and power struggles.

    I worked at adidas part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have endless job opportunities due to Adidas buying out Reebok .

    Cons

    The bad part is that since they recently bought out reebok most stores havent been focused on bringing up ppl within the store but outside the company
