ProsOne of the most passionate sports brand in the world.

Was a great place to work, but not right now...maybe one day again.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at adidas Group

ProsGreat discount and opportunities to move around. Great environment to learn in, young dynamic and athletic people. Always on the go.

ConsOnce you're out, you're out of the company. Very hard to get back in. The salaries are low for how much work you do. Location is far away from Nuremberg, need a car or carpool. Their newer policy is to be open and honest and non-political, but they are VERY political and honesty just gets you in trouble and pushed out. VERY process driven, no risk taking, not a place for creativity to thrive. Very conservative and judgmental. No one is happy in their job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
