    I worked at NIKE full-time

    Pros

    Such an exciting, innovative environment. We were always working with the coolest people globally and managing exciting projects and it moved so fast so you were never bored.

    Cons

    Theres so much politics in getting ideas pushed through, but i think thats the same for all large companies, right? There are so many external agencies involved in the making of Nike, they need to work harder on the headhunting process to keep the best talent internally.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your influencer employees to know whats on the street, not what an agency says...

    There wasn't really anything haven't worked there for long enough yet, in my honest opinion they couldn't have ran the interview better

    Advice to Management

    Really nice staff and people, maybe find a way to make it a bit more of people mixing, like an introductionary task. Didn't really get to know the other people going for the jobs that well
