    Advice to Management

    1. Management by people having 15/20 + yrs of exp in IT industry? there is your problem. Ask the middle-level "managers" to define management, then you will realize what a mistake you have done.
    2. Hire people with good work ethic, coming from a good background
    3. Send out more manager surveys.

    Pros

    Benefits are comparable to other large companies.
    Employee Store benefits
    Able to work remote
    Beautiful facilites

    Cons

    Too much Politics!
    I was with Nike over 15 years. The first 9-10 were fantastic! Felt like a second home when going into work. Worked with great co-workers. You were valued as an individual bringing your talents together to accomplish great things. And you Did the Right Thing.
    Advance 5-7 years. Nike is no longer the same company that it's founders started. It's now a big, money hungry corporation who cares more about how they "appear" than about the tenured employees who have spent years loyally supporting the Brand. When is enough ENOUGH? How much money is ENOUGH? The bigger they become, the more distance the top elite will become from the "little man", or the people who have been there for years. Just because we have been there for years doesn't mean we aren't excited to stay innovative and evolve to the next vision!

    Like others have said, if you speak up for what is RIGHT, you are a trouble maker and unless you brown nose, you have a target on your back. Just like I feel happened at this last "Re-Structuring" (aka layoff) session. where I would bet that a majority of the folks were long time employees. Definitely the WRONG THING!

    Advice to Management

    Brush up on the Maxims and follow them. Don't just pay them lip service.
    Remember the Man.
