Pros
Cons
  • Like many corporate jobs, they expect you to be on call 24/7 and work-life balance was pretty much impossible if I wasn't using vacation time (in 94 reviews)

  • Very hard to move up in the company (in 53 reviews)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great benefits, good people. Nike takes care of their people and there are often advancement opportunities, especially if you're willing to relocate

    Cons

    Retail isn't for everyone. Sometimes you work late, and then return early in the morning. The variable schedule can be challenging for some lifestyles.

    Pros

    Fun, cool culture, lots of perks. Really fun buildings and campus. Lots of meetings all over campus. Fun employee events.

    Cons

    Lots of meetings... all over campus. Lots of contractor turnover. Bad attitudes sprinkled here and there. The Nike culture as a whole has a touch of ‘spoiled brat’ feel to it.

    Advice to Management

    Expand black badge positions and get some more permanent bodies in place.

    I worked at NIKE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The sports and fitness culture is great. The most competitive and driven company I have ever worked for. They will continue to dominate the industry for years to come. Some really great people to work with. You will work with the very best talent in the industry. More than a company it is a way of life.

    Cons

    It is not a company for everyone. Depending on your manager it can be heaven or hell. There is little support, training or oversight of middle managers. Managers exhibit favoritism. Very inconsistent about policies. HR is primarily virtual self help. The company is hyper competitive, which often gets out of control creating a hostile environment. You see many employees burn out from the pace. NIKE often "eliminates the positions" of older employees. Many cliques.

    Advice to Management

    1) If you want to be the most innovative company you have to create a workplace of trust and safety for employees. 2) Stop training and letting go of good employees for your competitors to scoop up.
