      You Will Work VERY Hard.

      Jul 21, 2020 - Business Systems Analyst in Beaverton, OR
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Excellent benefits - 401(k), Health Insurance (Med / Vision / Dental), ESPP, annual bonus, Company Store. Health Center membership is currently free after MANY years of being about $30-$40/month. Child care when COVID wasn't a thing. Nike can be a fun, challenging, and dynamic company to work for.

      Cons

      The company is terribly top-heavy in Director-and-above management. Matrix management can be tough to get your head around. Work/life balance can sometimes be secondary. Individual contributor ranks in the IT space are very top-heavy with ETW workers. The company is very tied to share price & growth.
