    I have been working at adidas full-time

    Pros

    Great energy and good vibes within the work environment. adidas puts much effort into looking after their employees.

    Cons

    Depending on the team you're in the company can be quite political. adidas being a German company- things like hierarchy, formalities and networking can make or break your career.

    Advice to Management

    Think bottom up instead of top to bottom. Great ideas can only come to life when they are supported by all employees.
