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

    Pros

    Discount 60% off online and in stores, 40% off at all factory and clearance stores

    Cons

    Pay, Time off, the availability they want you to work,, the work they make you do for the pay you get.
    I was in school full time. and had two other jobs and for the most part they were flexabile with me. Stating off we had a great team. Then managers took promotions and within months are store went down hill. They promoted people who should not have been promoted.
    They hired new people $1 more than current employees who could not do half of the stuff myself or other employees could do. That lead people to quit.
    I ended up leaving NIKE because they changed their availability to having open-close availability Friday- Sunday. But with my schedule I could not work that, they didn't care that it was unfair to workers. They want to have athletes and good students working for them, but they don't want to work with their schedules.. Sad

    I have been working at NIKE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free and open work environment. Employee store access. Casual dress policy.

    Cons

    Working here has been an interesting experience. People seem to reach higher positions based solely off of time spent at the company, not necessarily skill level or intelligence. Lower level employees are treated as expendable because it is known how many people want to work here. I worked long hours on many occasion and never saw my manager do the same.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. See the value in employees.

    I have been working at NIKE as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome people (mostly), awesome campus. Great atmosphere. Amazing place if you're into sports. Lots of chances to hear and see athletes speak. Cool work functions/parties.

    Cons

    There's always political bias undertones in campaigns.Heavy office politics that get in the way of doing what is needed to succeed. Too many "type-A" personalities who don't really do the work, just sit in meetings, look after themselves, and take the credit for the many individuals and teams that slaved to make them look good. Not enough effort to keep awesome, hard working contractors and bring them on as full time.

    Advice to Management

    Push harder to keep talented contractors and convert them to full time instead of wasting time and money continually by having to train someone new because you "don't have the headcount" to bring them on full time.

    One of two things seem to happen very frequently. 1 - Contractors are converted to a full time position just because a team might have room, or 2 - Contracts are dragged out... never converted to full time, even if they have proven themselves time and time again and have valuable skills and knowledge, because it was decided up the chain that they didn't have the budget for it.

    Stop stringing folks along only to cut them after they've done an amazing job.
