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

    Pros

    A renewed focus on winning in the US market has meant real improvements and growth for the adidas brand and business in America.

    The opportunities to work with people from all over the world, and to work in other countries is great.

    One question is, how will things change as Kasper Rorsted makes his mark on the company?

    Cons

    For some roles you have to work in another market/country or the global headquarters in Germany to advance your career.


  2. "A great brand with passion for sport"

    Pros

    Mostly nice people, collegiate and friendly. Relatively relaxed. Open doors and less hierarchical. Great heritage, great footwear. More about team than singular individuals and their greatness.

    Cons

    Not really decisive, too many layers, complicated and roles over dissected. Conventional, Silo thinking. Action-oriented sometimes but no consistent enough focus to make one initiative successful

    Advice to Management

    Stop duplicating roles between sales and marketing. Create real accountabilities. Focus then really focus by shedding other stuff, and by making bold investments. Fix the basics, weed out non-performers and complacent senior managers. Ensure managers are evaluated by their employees. Chase what consumers are chasing. Respect diversity and equality in action

    I have been working at adidas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The discount is an awesome perk. You can share it with friends and family. The atmosphere is very chill relaxed. No pressure to sell, no personal sales goals. As long as the store makes money that's all that matters.

    Cons

    Typical corporate politics. Not much room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the product in your region verses what you think is needed.
