    I have been working at NIKE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nike is built on the idea that anyone can be a better athlete through the power of innovation. This philosophy is carried throughout the business and resonates through so much of what we do.

    Cons

    Some parts of the business move at their own pace, and it's not necessarily the pace they should be moving. But I've seen this changing over the years I've been there.

    Pros

    Great energy, young and ambitious employees, active culture.

    Cons

    When things get tough, they only care about the stock price. Not the employees, not the relationships, and not the consumer... the culture has changed, unfortunately.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the Man.

    Pros

    Nike is one of the greatest companies I've ever had the pleasure to work for. There's lots of opportunity for growth and advancement. The culture is exceptional. Work life balance is a "real" thing here. I thoroughly enjoy working in CIS and don't plan to move anywhere soon. My interactions with each team has been collaborative and positive to include the harder conversations. There are lots of very smart individuals here and they are eager to share their wisdom and knowledge. I also find that individuals tend to support and guide in a positive way. It's definitely a great work environment. I highly recommend others to apply.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Keep listening and engaging all employees at all levels. That has had a very positive reaction.

    I help develop amazing projects within some of the most talented professionals in the world for a living. Rarely feels like work and more like fun.

    Cons

    I've Outgrown my role and ready for the next evolutionary career move but upward mobility is slow. Proactively seeking your next move is entirely on your shoulders if you want to make it happen faster vs. hoping it'll naturally occur.

    Devote more time and effort in helping your team actualize their career aspirations

    I worked at NIKE as an intern

    Pros

    Fantastic experience - it is what you make it to be. Great resources with amazing people who are willing to push you to do your best. Everybody loves you as an intern, and you have access to unimaginable resources. High-pressure environment when it comes down to the final project, but as it should be for trying to impress design directors and different branches.

    Cons

    Not a fan of Portland.
