    Pros

    Innovative culture, competitive pay and great benefits

    Cons

    Very large company. Change comes but at a very slow pace. Agile is attempted here but seldom well executed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating. Don't be afraid to fail

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

    Pros

    the discount/ staff dress
    meeting new people
    getting opportunities to go to exclusive Nike events
    occasionally volunteer at a school or local boys and girls club to help motivate kids with sports
     promotions are available and at a certain level you can receive many benefits
     ( does not mean a pay increase, its literally more hours and different things are done than a "normal" employee)

    Cons

    I'm not going to lie, your experience working at a factory store will vary at your location. with the type of management, there is, the attitude they have and how the rest of the employee's act. At my store, it is very cliquey now, everyone knows everyone's business, almost everyone messes with one another, and depending on the people it can make working there pretty crappy, but again this just depends on your store and your own attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Managment needs to learn how to communicate with staff and to know that if they have a crappy attitude it will affect how the rest of the staff behaves. At my store, the head coach can be sarcastic for no reason and it has to lead to other coaches or leads to acting the same way but they cannot tolerate the sarcasm back at them (LOL)

    I worked at NIKE part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best reasons- the discount is great! I worked at the outlet so I got even better prices than you would at a full price retail store. You get access to swoosh, which is Nike.com but for employees. Everything on swoosh is discounted. There are opportunities to move up, and the company culture it great!

    Cons

    A downside is that you are required to work weekends, and they are very serious about that. This applies to most retail stores though. Management can be a downside, depending on who your managers are, but if you treat them with respect then you will receive the same.

    Advice to Management

    Be understanding.

    Be nice to your employees, if they are sick let them call out, don't force them to come in.

    I worked at NIKE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, health insurance, stock purchase plan, discounts, great company culture, working at the WHQ helps support a healthy lifestyles with all the campus ammenities

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Wanting to have a fulfilling person AND professional life made it impossible for me to continue working there. It would have be nice to have some alternative work schedule options available AND supported by upper management. I enjoyed working there, but in the end, didn't want to wait until retirement age to finally supplement my work time sufficiently with pursuits that are fulfilling on a much deeper level.

    Pros

    Team based
    fun and relaxed
    everyone always willing to help eachother

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the company, only a couple over part times, then full times in store. You have to wait for one to leave then apply for an interview to get the position. So its a bit difficult to move up fast.
