    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.

    Pros

    Good energy, as you'd expect of the brand
    The industry leader, with vision and budget to Think Big
    Many people spend their entire career there, able to move among different roles
    Portland is great place to live

    Cons

    Pay is below market rates, but if you're relocating from a place like NYC, Singapore, London, you'll find cost of living to be much lower in Portland.
