    Pros

    A good office environment. Friendly, energetic coworkers. You can carve out a job for yourself if you take the initiative.

    Cons

    A little too much drinking the company KoolAid. A lot of duplication by different departments reporting on the same thing, with not enough communication between departments.

    Pros

    Contractor pay is good if you work in Tech (IT). Projects are generally exciting and challenging. Most of projects I've experienced are fast-paced with aggressive timelines and Nike will provide any resource necessary to help you get the job done. Casual work attire is also a big plus. If you keep your heads down, focus on the work and not ask too many questions, you can stick around for a while.

    Cons

    Full-timers in several groups of Nike Tech severely lack technical competencies or solid skills. Most are there to play politics and climb ladders without owning any deliverables. Nike Tech brings in highly paid contractors to do the actual work because there's no talent internally due to the low salaries. There's a lot of politics involving FTE's vs. ETW's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new CIO should know this math well, hiring and retaining 1 employee who actually adds value for $100k a year is more efficient than paying 2 unskilled and incompetent employees for 50k a year.

    Laid back atmosphere. You wear work out clothes to work. Flexible schedule. Free clothes and shoes.

    Work with teenagers that have no work ethic. Hard to move up because no one leaves the company.

    Pros

    Nike is big, strong, great roots and great innovation. Decent health care for retail. Great discount. Best work attire you'll ever have for a job!

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in such a big company. Very hard to move up if the people directly above you do not work with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At the store level it can be tough finding great leaders, more like managers.
