    I have been working at NIKE full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits - 401(k), Health Insurance (Med / Vision / Dental), ESPP, annual bonus, Company Store. Health Center membership is currently free after MANY years of being about $30-$40/month. Child care when COVID wasn't a thing. Nike can be a fun, challenging, and dynamic company to work for.

    Cons

    The company is terribly top-heavy in Director-and-above management. Matrix management can be tough to get your head around. Work/life balance can sometimes be secondary. Individual contributor ranks in the IT space are very top-heavy with ETW workers. The company is very tied to share price & growth.

    Pros

    Working for Nike was a highlight of my career. I worked with amazing people on incredibly cool projects and had opportunities that I may not have had at other companies. PTO and other benefits are top notch.

    Cons

    You have to make a personal commitment to maintain your work/life balance or wind up working completely crazy hours. Some of the teams and managers can be pretty toxic. My experience was 99% working with terrifically supportive managers. 1% was with a dysfunctional team and a self-serving manager.
