    I have been working at adidas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great product, people are friendly, we have been doing very well

    Cons

    That winning streak is about to come to an end, and kasper r the ceo is bringing the headcount down to drive profits. Many more to come.

    Advice to Management

    If you really have genuine care for employees as management preaches over and over, you don’t fire them 10 days before Christmas. Good people that didn’t deserve it were let go. It seemed subjective and arbitrary. Doesn’t help that you try to hide this from the employees bY not announcing anything. It’s just empty corporate jingoism

    Pros

    Discounts, semi nice work environment, breaks, lots of people can either take your shift or you can ask if they need a shift covered.

    Cons

    Managers always screaming at employees for stuff they can't control, managers don't communicate to eachother, barely communicating to the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Don't scream at employees 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Pros

    Great employees, employee discount is 30% in store and 50% online (but you have to order on a company computer). Culture is there

    Cons

    District Managers are rarely around, the only feedback I ever received in three years with the company (unless I asked for feedback) was during my annual performance review. There is an overwhelming amount of corporate getaways as a store manager which are completely irrelevant to the business and waste company money, time, and take store managers out of their stores (ex: instead of talking about business district managers will take their store managers out to dinners and drink excessively, theme parks, etc, etc...) They essentially tell us at these "assimilation meetings" that we are supposed to talk business but who cares. On several occasions our DM would drink excessively and speak poorly of others, say extremely inappropriate things, and allow our peers to do the same. Human Resources is no help in these situations, in fact - When I did reach out to human resources about several occurrences I was almost reprimanded. Stretch assignments are given to store managers but it's so overwhelming It feels as if our DM/Director has delegated their entire workload to other store managers. We understand that delegation is a thing, but there is so much DM workload which is allocated to SM's in the field, you find DM's spending their entire life dedicated to work - This completely distinguishes any work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Upper (Upper) Management (VP and up) need to monitor their directors and district managers more closely. There is no support in the field, due to the leniency our field directors give DM's and Store Managers, store managers will always have their DM's back when cornered and asked for DM feedback.
