    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.

    I have been working at NIKE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Summer hours provide opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Northwest summers. Corporate employees get annual public transportation pass. Sustainable conscious company. Employees seem to enjoy working here. Employee discount on cool sportswear and sneakers extended to immediate family and in-laws. Very nice facilities. If you’re young in your 20’s, great place to meet people.

    Cons

    Decisions tend to take longer with many consensus and politicking and layers of bureaucracy involved. Danger of getting pigeon-holed in your initial position. Really have to network to find other internal opportunities and be responsible for your own career development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep or start encouraging employees to be confident in making decisions and own the outcome. Whether succeed or fail, what was learned and how to improve is more important.

    I have been working at NIKE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Sports and unlimited career opportunities! You get to wear comfy gear all day! It's a very fun environment!
    Nike is pretty flexible when it comes to school. You can custom make your schedule according to your life style.
    While working at Nike you get a chance to engage with many people from all over the world! I have met tons of celebs and athletes while working at Nike.
    The company also have a Better World program where one is given a chance to participate in community events while still being paid as if you were at work. Awesome company to work for!

    Cons

    Super busy during Marathon but fun at the same time. I believe the benefits with healthcare can be a little better.
    Another con is the blackout days are from Oct 10, 2014 -Jan 2015. with little open days available for time off.
