    I have been working at adidas Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and time off are great. Sabbaticals are now offered starting at 15 year employees

    Cons

    Management, most are great but the one I directly report to is awful. She has lots of friends that work under her and they are treated way better than the rest of us.

    Advice to Management

    Check into middle management better

    Pros

    Co-workers are the best part of the job. They are a great resource for help and motivation. This is a fast-paced job that allows for learning to multitask.

    Cons

    Communication between associates and management, and amongst managers, is an area that requires much improvement. Organization in the boh process.

    Pros

    Fun, inclusive. It is truly a sport environment with a flair of fashion mixed in with the Originals & NEO collection.

    Cons

    Disorganized, immature corporate leadership. Technology in operations is far behind the competition. Orientation is overwhelming and becomes obsolete when you hit the sales floor. Bonus program is fairly unachievable in the outlets.

    Advice to Management

    Have fun, get the job done

    Pros

    Great benefits and you always get your 40 hours in if you are full time.

    Cons

    Store manager was more of a friend then a leader. No strict behavior for accountability. No real leading influence. Men get paid more no matter how many years longer you have been there than them.

    I worked at adidas Group part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great discounts, somewhat orderly management. Learned some great customer service skills while working here.

    Cons

    Some unfriendly coworkers. Hours weren't that great. At times we were sent home after working an hour or two. Sometimes it was impossible to find items in the stock room because it's extremely messy.

    Advice to Management

    The workers you hire are way too laid back.

    Great culture of Fitness. Many people work out during the workday - take a lunch and are heading home by 5.

    Reebok is the ugly red headed step child in the Adidas family. Not sure about where the company is going.
