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

    Pros

    Great culture and campus is beautiful. Great benefits

    Cons

    Too many H1B Visa workers, and when they move on the knowledge goes with them. They would rather hire contract workers than full timers.

    I worked at NIKE part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked here during school and they were very flexible with my schedule. Management actually cared about your future interest.

    Cons

    The profit sharing takes 5 years to become 100% vested, but they put a good amount in there for part-time employees.

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

    Pros

    The environment when I first started was good.

    Cons

    Hours were very inconsistent. People who did not carry their weight did not get dealt with by management.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized. There were 2 of the 5 managers who actually were on top of their jobs.

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

    Pros

    One of the best things about working out Nike is the people you'll meet. I work at a factory store and everyone here is so chill and easy going. No drama, no stress, just hustle and you'll be fine. Also, they believe in the "Nike brand" and giving back to the community so that's a plus. On top of that you'll get a 30% discount in factory stores, plus another 40 to 50% off in full retail stores.

    If you really want it you can move up the company. But you have to really want it and apply yourself. At least where I work at just talk to management and they'll help you.

    Cons

    Mmmm.. not much. I wish they'd give me more hours but you can always call and see if they want you to come in. Furthermore, the management is great in my store. However, out of all managers there is one I dislike she's a little too "power hungry" if yah ask me but I don't see her much which is great.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing it the Nike way. It works.

    Pros

    Very family friendly and nurturing amongst my peers.

    Cons

    There can be a heavy since of politics that seems to overtake a certain level of management.

    Advice to Management

    Let's put what's best for the business ahead of what's best for one's own area.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic co-workers at the company .
    Fun Events and food in the break room.
    Good hours and flexible scheduling that worked around my college classes.
    Strong management that also worked the floor and answered questions.

    Cons

    Always pressure to get Links, but little to no incentive to get them and in my view provides an additional hurdle for the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pay new employees more than the part time veterans, it hurts moral for the long time employees. Bring back the quarterly bonuses for hitting sales goals.

    Fun environment, it's fun to learn about what other people are doing as athletes and learning new things everyday from co workers

    Pros

    All about sports and fitness.

    Cons

    With "maturity" comes bureaucracy. In certain respects the company has simply become too big.

    Advice to Management

    Communication with your employees is one thing but connecting with and involving them meaningfully is quite different. Reach deeper into the organization to un-tap the potential that waits there.

    Pros

    Co-workers and customers are passionate about sports and athletics. Employee discount on products is a huge plus.

    Cons

    You have to deal with upset customers and clean up after them, but you should expect that when working in retail.
