For his vendor corruption. Same deal just different boats and titles.
Layoffs this week?
I keep hearing rumors about layoffs this week in Tech. Is this just a rumor, anyone have any details?
This is what too many layoffs lead to
We’ve had a staggering number of re-orgs (layoffs) in the last decade, at least by historic Nike standards. The problem with layoffs is effective employees leave and bad employees float up like a tu-d. It feels like no one knows what’s going on... — read more

Eight Bully Types
This list is more or less a cut and paste off the internet with some editing made. Have you experienced any of these bully types? Is there anymore you want to add? Got any advice for anyone reading this that may be currently experiencing any of... — read more
Friend is being asked to travel to a corporate location and pay for it
I don't work at Nike (well technically they're at Converse) and my friend is remote being asked to travel to their office in Boston but has to pay for it. I've never heard of anyone having to go to an office or other office location and pay for... — read more
Nike gets rare Wall Street “Sell” downgrade
You don’t see this often. Lots of analysts issue buy or hold recommendations but an actual sell recommendation is rare. The downgrade was based on Footlocker’s abysmal results. The issue is that 70% of Footlocker’s inventory comes from Nike. Nike... — read more
I do not work at nike, but have friends who do...and this has been obvious for way too long...hope there is accountability?
Post about Nike store layoffs deleted?
Why was the post about a Nike store being closed and layoffs deleted? Seems fishy
A lot of threads on not receiving HR support. I was also bullied with no support from ER. Here is a book a Nike Executive wrote on her experience... — read more
600 ETWs released end of May!
I came to know that about 600 contractors (maybe some FTEs as well) are being released by end of May. Don't know specifics but many of them work under GSPANN (vendor) and under a VP with Initials S.B. Please comment if you know more.
New Chief Diversity Officer?
Has anyone heard about the new chief diversity officer? I’ve heard he’s terrible. The whole HRLT is just a shitshow at this point with one or two notable exceptions

Nike is soul crushing
How did we end up here? Every biz is in a shake up. What’s up? Just do it. Cut us all. Get it over with.
Is it just me or does Nike seem like it's barely staying afloat?
What the heck is happening with this company? Every day, I'm surprised at how disorganized things seem to be. There are always delays, mistakes, and changes happening that leave me feeling like things are falling apart. It's making me anxious and... — read more
Adidas is on the attack
I guess they realized this is the best time to take Nike on. Even they can see how bad things are.
First consultants, now employees.
Nike has started layoffs in Digital.
Finance transformation potential layoffs
Has anyone heard of anything regarding to finance transformation and what groups may be impacted by the change
Throwing out VALUES (a metaphor?)
With the elimination of the VALUES band levels and changing titles, will this make it harder or easier to move up the ladder? Will this just be a way to trap people in a band level for longer? Not sure how to think about this change.
Hotel desking (ABW) is chaos.
Required to be on campus but can't have a home base desk? Hate it. Why jam this 2018 plan down our throats when the world seriously changed since then? Some peeps are 100% remote still. So those who have to come in should be able to have a home base... — read more
HR is a joke
I just recently went to my HR partner to discuss unethical behavior, potential gender discrimination, bullying and retaliation... and do you know what they told me? "This is between me and my [insert the name of the bully here]" I took my stack of... — read more
Change is the only constant at Nike
It’s both a blessing and curse. It’s a blessing because Nike is more agile than most large companies. It’s a huge reason for Nike’s success. It’s a curse because nothing is ever the same for very long. Just when you figure something out, bo-m... — read more
Where are the rumors on the new pay levels?
I heard of talk about the removal of VALUES and they are replacing it with levels like 80,81,82,83, etc. Much like a place I worked at before. It allows them to have more specific ranges & benefits since the levels are super small compared to say... — read more
What kind of people get hired at Nike?
Okay so it’s always been my dream to work there (not gonna lie lol). After reading these posts, I def feel like the allure is gone a bit which is probably for the best, lol. But I am curious—how do people get hired at such a behemoth of a company? I... — read more
Just come here and read the complaints? I do it on weekly basis, it’s like esquire magazine!
What ever happened to Valiant Labs, they seem even harder to trace than the normal Nike Inno.
What is going on here?
Given the most recent events I am sick to my stomach after seeing the latest communication that was sent out today. It just feels like it is supporting the school shooting and it was “justified”. School shootings are not ok! It doesn’t matter who the... — read more
Going to see Air
For a wistful and nostalgic reminder of when it was actually cool and fun to be here.
Nike has changed a lot
I'd be lying if I said I didn't really like my job here until a few years ago. Nowadays, however, I feel like I'm working in a completely different company because Nike has changed a lot. It's this change that I'm having a hard time coming to... — read more
It would be nice if you could volunteer to be laid off
The fact that in this very moment many people would gladly volunteer to be laid off says a lot about the company. Am I right?
What about the rest of the GT cancer?
Well, will there be a clean-up of the rest of the toxic "leadership" left in GT after the RAT departed?? The sh**storm has carried on through the minion ratlettes. It's not enough to chop off the head of the monster. Fear-based leadership rules... — read more
Fun place to work
NIKEMAGEDDON IS COMING
Are you kidding me? This is exactly what they want you to believe - that everything is fine. The layoffs, the rumors, the chaos - it's all apart of you-know-whos plan to control and manipulate us. Now they'll take back WFH! WTF! I've been connecting... — read more
Constant reorgs are tiring
Before, I used to feel a sense of accomplishment in my work. I was confident in my abilities and consistently performed at a high level. But due to the many, many reorganizations over the years, my job responsibilities have changed so much to the... — read more
How has it come to this
GT is Lord of the Flies. A siloed org rto where collaboration now means emerging once a quarter to throw spears at each other. Tech has actually regressed since MP and ES left, say what you want about them but we were far better off IMO
Been 2 weeks since AC's email. No mention of it at the all hands. What's up?
