    I worked at adidas Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The atmosphere around the Canadian head office helped me to enjoy my job. The pay, bonuses, benefits, holidays, and perks of working in the sports world with a power house brand was second to none.

    Cons

    There isn't much room for advancement in the building. Unless you are prepared to be transferred it's tough to advance in a timely manner. Too much good talent has walked because of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at a some of your management that is floating along, not leading their teams in the way adidas Group should be.
