    I worked at NIKE full-time for 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.

    I have been working at NIKE part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours, Great Discounts, and friendly environment. Managers consistently try to keep an upbeat and positive environment and the company as a whole truly cares about their employees. Nike's scheduling system makes it easy to request time off and shows you your schedule three weeks in advance. Working at nike will give you great product knowledge as well as the history of the company.

    Cons

    Can get boring at times when the store is slow, work can be repetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more leadership opportunities.

    I worked at NIKE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    From the first moment I walked into NikeTown San Francisco when I was hired I knew the place would be something special. The atmosphere of Nike Stores is like none i've ever experienced. It's a very team oriented atmosphere.

    Cons

    The challenges are no different from most places. It's retail and you have to work hard for everything that you get. I just wish there were more stores in the Fresno Central Valley area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep training store athletes to be the best at what they do, and everyone will prosper.

    I have been working at NIKE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You are being challenged everyday and you have the tools to make great things happen. You are working for such a powerful brand name that you always have a foot in the door and instant respect. Very diverse environment with people from all over the world. Young people, energized people, talented people. Facilities are second to none, amazing campus with healthy food and sports opportunities

    Cons

    The job is very demanding and you have to be on top of your game every single day, this can also be viewed as a plus. Nike has a matrix organization so you have to be able to deal with different levels in management teams and consider every stakeholder before making key decisions that can affect others. As there is so much talent inside Nike and so many talented people trying to get into Nike, nobody is impressed easily. You have to be super amazing to make a good impression, Nike's standard is perfection, everything less than the best, is not even worth mentioning. I love it.
