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

    Pros

    Good salaries and benefits. They also offer stock purchase, retirement contribution matches and annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Since the major reorg a few years ago things have still not been sorted out and jobs are not clearly defined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to you mid and lower level employees, there is a lack of communication and senior managers work with their own agendas in mind.

    I have been working at NIKE

    Pros

    good employee perks, casual yet professional work environment. company has a clear view of their goals and business objectives.

    Cons

    career growth of it's employee's is not really a priority for the company, there is no incentive for current employees to stay at the company and continue to work hard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    career development is key for all employees and it should be taken seriously as it will only benefit nike to further invest in employees' knowledge and skill set. opportunities such as 'stretch projects' are great ways to do this but a 'stretch assignment' can only go on so long before it ends up being a permanent responsibility that the employee should then be compensated for.

    Current Employee - Nike Lead Athlete in Phila, PA (US)
    Current Employee - Nike Lead Athlete in Phila, PA (US)

    I have been working at NIKE full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Tremendous company ethos and a highly sought after brand which made it a pleasure to sell. A fast paced, high energy environment and a company that cares deeply about its employees. An example: full medical benefits from day one. Great people to work with and a beautiful, state-of-the- art store environment in which any employee would be proud to work.

    Cons

    Long hours are the name of the game in retail and this position is no exception. Unless you are comfortable with 12 hour days from start to finish, this is probably not the situation for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attract more college educated athletes who truly know and appreciate the history of the NIKE brand from firsthand experience in the athletic arena. Recognize these individuals and help them seek greater, higher level advancement in the company after they have learned the retail essence of the company.
