Saddle up amigos! Here we go again. Cognizant isn't alone. This is in addition to Cognizant. We had a disaster reorg last year and we're looking at another one; another disaster. What is going on? This is from a good source and I'm hoping that... — read more
Each one is worse than the last!! These guys are ranked on who can get deepest into the Rats backside, not on any technical acumen or leadership skills. Biggest joke of a leadership org in the industry…
WTF is going on at Nike? I've been here for 10 years and I ain't seen nothing like this before. Management's always been shady but now they're just straight up evil. They're getting rid of good people left and right and replacing them with robots and... — read more
Hey, So one of my dreams is/was to work for Nike. Like many of you, I have a lifelong passion for sports and now some skills assorted to help build upon this. I am a writer, can make books, as well as do some video. I have been lurking on this... — read more
I was wrong when I thought the turnover would be reduced. Many of my colleagues have left recently. I don't know if the leadership is trying to address employee turnover issues in any way, but I've noticed that Nike continues to lose too many good... — read more
You in person teams, we get it, but it's not for everyone. Nike? When will you wake up to the new reality? Tech should be remote. We're tired of paying for your weird buildings and no parking. Not our problem that you invested in stupid real... — read more
I wish everyone the best of luck. Stay true to yourself and what you stand by. Never give up.
It isn’t a binary issue where remote work is “good” or “bad”. It’s more nuanced where sometimes remote work makes a lot of sense and sometimes it doesn’t. This depends on a number of factors including your particular role at Nike, your org, the... — read more
The admin community is a joke on slack. They only respond to VP admins. What happened here? During the pandemic we were a great team! You’re leaving a lot of admins out to dry with no help. Where’s the community? In person meetings isn’t the... — read more
It's obvious that Nike won't ever promote remote work and their excuse is that we're a team as in sports teams. However, we've moved away from sport products to leisure apparel. That doesn't add up to the reality. My point? Why not allow for more... — read more
The Nike store in downtown Seattle is closing near the end of January. A sign was recently posted in the window of the sportswear store at 1500 6th Ave. saying that it would be closing on Jan. 20, 2023. At this time it is unknown why the store is... — read more
They keep saying no layoffs. I don’t trust that’s the truth.
I would hope in good conscience no one is actually talking trash on slack. Word on the street is a couple of people were told to leave because of their Slack history....
I hate you!
I heard this from a few folks but not a direct source. Can anyone confirm and if it's for all orgs?
This is a Sh@# show. Seems like Nike is going to force most FTEs to move to Cognizant as an ETW or lose their job. Cognizant is going to take over. I guess that this is the grandiose plan. This was always Rat it the car plan. Once more we get fu!@#$... — read more
Nike is known for this. I’m in the middle and it sucks. Can’t Nike be honest? Likely will never happen. I’m so depressed and I feel beaten. I literally want to die.
Breathe out, at least we aren't our neighbors sinking and purposly releasing trash product. It's not always greener on the other side, those stripes are miserable. Have friends who are eager to leave or get severance for service. Now they are... — read more
They think they are a great manager. They have obvious and deep insecurities. (Hello botox, lip fillers, and crash dieting.) They are always spaszing out, and feel threatened by other women to the point of attacking them and making a scene ... and... — read more
Get ready - it’s coming! Productivity review wasn’t good People “abusing” the system
If you don’t know what I’m talking about I heard lots of buzz about something that rhymes with pooter and starts with “sh” (dunno what words are banned here). Anyone know what’s up? Got one half of folks talking it up about it with all sorts of... — read more
Stress and burnout are affecting too many people here. I personally have never had more work to do. For now, I'm trying to continue to do my best for the fear of losing my job, but in the meantime I hope to be able to land something else. How do... — read more
Do we have any idea when the next round will start?
I've been diagnosed with something bad and I am afraid to tell my manager. I've been in Tech a long time and have seen what they do in these situations. One, a heart problem on FMLA, laid off and then died. Others with cancer, same treatment. I... — read more
You use your lawyers to do the dirty work. You don't care about the minions; the workers/ the lower class. Lawyers? How do you feel? Sleezy? Sick? Or NO soul. As an average worker, I make about 50K a year. Think about that. Could you survive? ... — read more
Humor me here. I realize PayPal and Nike are not synonymous companies - but isn’t being the chairman at Paypal and Nike a conflict of interest? If nothing more than a conflict of time and priority? I think 2023 needs to be the year of JD funding a... — read more
I hope we see some improvements in 2023 or many of us will choose to walk away.
It can't be good news if the stock started falling even before the results were announced. I know I've said this before, but it bears repeating. Nike leadership is layoffs-happy whenever things don't go as planned. If the results are not what they... — read more
I just read the following in an article about Meta (Facebook). Seems that it could just as easily be describing Nike’s business strategy over the past years (oh and don’t forget to mention the woke virtue signaling and aggressive affirmative action... — read more
At the beginning of the new year (2023), Night 2 and Day 2 production shifts at Beaverton will be shutting down VaporMax, VisiZoom and Injection. Those personnel will be integrated into other departments. Hmmmmm I smell a rat.
Nike could lay off 30% of the employees tomorrow with absolutely no effect on the business. In my experience Nike is way overstaffed for the amount of work and this is why the politics are so toxic and survivalist. Here's the thing. This might be... — read more
When do you think the hiring freeze is going to end?
I hate to leave Nike, but now I have a new opportunity to grow. Good bye and I wish you luck. I will be fully remote starting the new year. If you are not stuck in your role, there are plenty of opportunities and especially in tech. I wish you... — read more
I understand the need to vent and to let out your frustrations about Nike but sometimes when I read the stuff that is posted here I get the impression that a lot of folks never liked working here, ever. Did any of you enjoy working at Nike at least... — read more
Can an ETW with the right...pedigree be converted and onboarded as a Director. It's as if HR watched King Ralph and thought it was an inspiring documentary. Ya just don't know whether to laugh or cry these days.
How likely is that there will be Nike layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
When I realized that, despite all my efforts, I won't be able to progress here any time soon, I started sending applications. Guys and gals, why is it worth staying at Nike?
It being layoffs. Do we know if anything is brewing on that front? I think it's been long enough since the last major round that something big might be coming our way. I'm not counting anything under 100 employees as major, by the way, in case... — read more
In none of the companies I've worked for so far have I seen employees try so hard to justify to their superiors that Nike has a need for them and their positions. Unfortunately, this often results in a negative atmosphere. I'm wondering what you... — read more
It’s true when people get promoted without the experience it impacts the effectiveness of the team and overall performance of the business. Unfortunately, when revealed they are in over their heads they get moved at the same level to anew... — read more
