Managers need some development
Consultant (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – July 26, 2017
I have worked at Nike as both a black badge (FTE) and a white badge (ETW). In both cases I had the worst managers of my career. No coaching, no leadership qualities at all. The burden is on you to survive. Meetings from 7-6, and catered lunch meetings which are unproductive, as everyone has phones and laptops out trying to eke out some degree of productivity in their day. Working here is also like a soap opera - everything moves so slowly, you can leave and come back 3 years later and the same issues and projects are happening. Not a good place for someone that wants to be an individual contributor. Consensus for everything. Also very clicky. Good luck with any work-life balance, as you are expected to be in all those wonderful meetings. Also the constant reorgs promote a feeling of uncertainty.

bad management, constant re-orgs, odd culture
