    Current Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Amsterdam (Netherlands)

    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.

    A little too much drinking the company KoolAid. A lot of duplication by different departments reporting on the same thing, with not enough communication between departments.

    Pros

    Contractor pay is good if you work in Tech (IT). Projects are generally exciting and challenging. Most of projects I've experienced are fast-paced with aggressive timelines and Nike will provide any resource necessary to help you get the job done. Casual work attire is also a big plus. If you keep your heads down, focus on the work and not ask too many questions, you can stick around for a while.

    Cons

    Full-timers in several groups of Nike Tech severely lack technical competencies or solid skills. Most are there to play politics and climb ladders without owning any deliverables. Nike Tech brings in highly paid contractors to do the actual work because there's no talent internally due to the low salaries. There's a lot of politics involving FTE's vs. ETW's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new CIO should know this math well, hiring and retaining 1 employee who actually adds value for $100k a year is more efficient than paying 2 unskilled and incompetent employees for 50k a year.
