    I worked at NIKE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I stayed for the people and the culture. I spent 22 years with Nike. Athlete to District Manager. I was able to build an amazing career with them. I left only because I am not able to move to the west coast. Maybe one day I will come back. If you are able to get in, have a great career. If the company doesn't love you, you will know it. If you love the company it will love you back. Work hard and smart. Enjoy the changing environment, its constant. Having Nike on your resume will open a ton of doors for you.

    Cons

    Politics. Every company has them. Embrace it. You will hear drink the cool-aid a ton. Drink it. Sometimes and it works in cycles, Nike loses its way. They have always found the way back. The company is huge and they sometimes hire or place people in the wrong roles just because the are in the right circles.

    Advice to Management

    Work so you are thinking about people again. You forget you are the industry leader, not the other way around. You are way too focused on what the Adidas' of the world are doing instead of innovating in the categories you know the most. Culture of categories ie NSW are created by the consumer. They decide what is cool. They decide if its the next thing. Stop creating stuff. Create and innovate for the athlete.

    I have been working at NIKE part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great discount (40% off in store and online and 30% off at outlet stores). The work place is motivating. By being a hard worker you can get sent to special Nike events where you can mix and mingle with higher ups. The retail workplace for a brand experience store is laid back and relaxed.

    Cons

    Managers sometimes take the actions of their employees WAY too personal. Pay is nothing great. 40% of employees care about their job, the other 60% don't care and slack off. The 40% has to pick up their dead weight.

    Advice to Management

    Make more repercussions to employees that simply do nothing and ignore consumers.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, decent salary, stability

    Cons

    There is no work life balance for upper management. In order to get promoted you must be single w/ no family obligations. All upper management staff who have families either get bi passed for a promotion or are forced to leave. ESPECIALLY AT NIKETOWN NY.

    Advice to Management

    Believe in loyalty and intergerity. Don't forget about the people who have been with company formany years, but are not always able to stay out late and attend every company event.
