      Pros

      You and your work-life balance matter. Surrounded by people who care. Encouraged to support the causes that are meaningful to you.

      Cons

      Communication between departments is a struggle. Many systems make the process more complicated than necessary. Some managers lack the skills or tools to support their teams.

      Overall disappointed in the culture

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Medical benefits, discounts, stock options, gyms, some really great/talented people, etc.

      Cons

      Boys club/toxic masculinity/cliquey high school behavior Poor management and lack of servant leadership development Under-the-table promotions based off who you know/if you're a white male Stolen ideas/credit, broken promises, and blocked stretch opportunities for selfish gain Lack of senior leadership transparency Hiring BIPOC & women into senior positions to check "diversity and inclusion" boxes Expensive on-campus food Work/life balance is sometimes not respected and falsely promised Senior leadership doesn't necessarily care to push against the grain in a bold way, rethink processes, or see things from new perspectives - they have their own agenda Being told to speak up and then when you do, being told to shut up Essentially zero onboarding unless you get very lucky Many unethical people & processes Below-market pay coupled with higher output expectations the lower in band level you get Poor budget management and excessive/careless employee spending on the company's dime Not many growth opportunities for BIPOC, women (unless you suck up, drink the kool-aid, or are in the boys club) Employees are only a number in the grand scheme of things and are fully at the company's disposal Not in any way a sustainable brand/company

      Overall decent work environment

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      All employees generally had positive attitudes and were committed to working as a team. Most managers were willing to assist in any tasks that needed to be done. The online discount is nice if you want to buy newer items. The in store discount is also great. It's best however to just wait until staff dress time to use the elevated discount.

      Cons

      Instead of offering full time positions to experienced employees, the company instead hires tons or seasonals year-round that constantly need training, only to leave a few months later. The part time employees will end up working less hours than seasonals, which creates poor communication between different areas of the store. During covid Nike decided to not offer any yearly raises to employees. When stores reopened, part time workers often were scheduled 40 hour weeks but were left out of any full time employee benefits. After covid, it was nearly impossible for our store to get enough cleaning supplies to properly sanitize the store under the guidelines we were given Advancing in the company is extremely difficult. You're expected to work months or even years in "stretch" manager roles without getting paid for it to hopefully one day get an official promotion.

      Pros

      Such an amazing company to work for. The teammates and coaches were always so friendly and the customers were fun to help daily. Nike is such an iconic company and I'm grateful to have had such a great team. The discount was pretty sweet too.

      Cons

      No cons that I can think of.

      Pros

      Constant change makes working for NIKE fun and challenging. Being yourself is encouraged and it never felt too corporate or serious. Corporate discount is also nice.

      Cons

      Have to really work hard to stand out and network if you want to avoid being stuck in your current role. Company culture and lifestyle comes at the cost of competitive salary.

      Amazing brand, culture, colleagues and leadership. Worst HR and organizational structure.

      Mar 11, 2021 - Planning Manager in Beaverton, OR
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Diverse and Inclusive culture. Colleagues are very collaborative and supportive, and professional at the same time. Many will become your best friends. Brand loyalty is a must. Processes are transparent and most leadership is very open and transparent about company's strategy and decision making. Data driven decision making is emphasized.

      Cons

      HR policies lack transparency at higher levels. Rules of transparent hiring apply only to analyst and manager level, and do not apply to Sr. Director and above level. Internal promotion is extremely difficult. You have to basically apply and interview, just as an external candidate. You cannot contact the hiring manager about the role if you work with him/her/they directly on everyday basis. After you apply, HR and recruiters won't reply for months and won't reply at all. No respect for internal candidates or experience by HR, hence moving up the ladder is extremely difficult. If you know someone higher up, you can become a Sr. Director or VP directly from being an analyst or manager with little experience, you don't need to interview or apply. Low turnover up to Manager level. Extremely high turnover above Director level, resulting into continuous strategy changes.
