WITNESS - NIKE is losing its Sport culture at the cost of digitization, this company’s culture was its USP. Too many lab rats in TECH VP position, too far away from sport to understand athlete. OP by @1igy+17vMvoVA. I couldn’t agree more... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Nike Inc.
Anyone see the article, it came out on Oct 15th. We ranked #13, adidas #11. Criteria seemed to be based on covid response and stock price and clearly nothing to do with how we feel during this current... — read more
Don't some of you think you might be overdoing it a bit when describing the working enviroment? Seriously, people, bring it down a notch.
So what’s next? There have been no announcements since John’s email.
This level of prolonged uncertainty is becoming a mental health risk and making nike an unsafe workplace. Can we all just use the Nike Speakup Portal, anonymously if you'd like, to speak up? Nike would HAVE TO take action if enough people pose their... — read more
We haven't heard anything yet.
(source below) Nike, this week, laid off a sizeable number of senior directors who oversaw athletic specialty retailers, family footwear and department stores, according to a report from Susquehanna Financial Group. The layoffs followed a first-round... — read more
I do not want to go into much detail as it relates to two cases where I had to deal with HR but I wanted to say a few things: always be cautious when dealing with HR they are here to make company operate efficiently and according to the law ... — read more
I hope this does not turn into a permanent trend... Nearly 3 out of 10 kids who played a sport prior to the coronavirus pandemic are no longer interested in participating, according to the latest national survey of sports parents commissioned by... — read more
Stop and think? If you feel like "layoffs have been going on for months", maybe that's because NIKE is being as TRANSPARENT as a company their size can be. They are keeping us informed and up-to-date as decisions are made and changes are... — read more
*I don’t work at Nike, but my partner does. It has been half a year since the pandemic started, and four months since Nike announced the layoff. As an outsider and not working for corporate America, I have to admit that I’m furious with the way... — read more
Don't give them the satisfaction. If you want to leave, chances are you'll be laid off in not too distant future. Then you can walk away with severance. If you leave now on your own you get nothing and you save them money. Why would anybody want to... — read more
Small and big? I lost count.
Hi All, Here is the Oregonian article published in the morning. https://www.oregonlive.com/business/2020/10/nike-layoffs-get-underway-ending-weeks-of-uncertainty.html I think it echos what we have been feeling for months. If you feel strongly... — read more
I feel sorry for the Nike employees. Why did the board hire John Donahoe as CEO? Such a great American corporation will be ruined. In Silicon Valley, as far as I remember large tech companies started to hire Bain to implement mainly restructuring... — read more
Has anyone heard any specifics on severance being offered?
Nobody really knows anything. Anyone really in the know won't be here causing a panic, and everyone here could BS their way into claiming they heard anything "from their friend in HR" - it's all gossip and BS at this point. You'll know when you... — read more
What other reasons could they have for not getting it over with by now? For letting us guess and sweat every single day? Do they expect us to break and leave? Just up and quit? Frankly, I might have even considered something like that if it was... — read more
It was Senior Directors this week, any idea who is next on the list? I'm going to assume they'll work their way down...
So many leaders were hit today and yesterday.. where is all the info? I’m using 3rd hand info and would love something more concrete...
Is this allowed? They are getting compensated at the US level but they flee into low cost countries? Is this allowed? Ethical?
what is Digital Guardian and why was it installed on my PC on Sept 29? Worse, I can see that it was installed by Nike Tools on that date, but it doesn't show up in my Apps under System Settings or in my desktop area... implying they tried to hide it... — read more
We are the servants. All of us to include VPs. Get on or get gone. That sounds about right. All hail the beast!
Alright, so we know that the S-Band employees restructure/layoff or whatever else we would like to call it started today. But, has anyone that you know of been in fact let go today? No names, please.
CIS monitors everything you do on your computer and logs it - not in Excel but in the cloud where it's kept for 7 years. They also monitor your mobile phone activity if you installed the MDM apps. It is highly searchable in the event it needs to be... — read more
Heard directly from my VP: this week is S-bands, week of the 19th is E/U/L bands. Leaders were told NOT to communicate this to their teams, but there are a few good apples left in the bunch who value providing transparency. It is impossible to... — read more
Im hearing mon-wed layoffs and thur-fri notified if you have a new role. Anyone else?
Leadership MIA every summer. Maybe we'll get a couple months of work done in this fall before they go MIA in Spring again...
I've heard there might be some store closings soon, is this true?
Word on the street is that next week the next layer will meet the God of Severance. Sure you can say "Not today" today. However next week there will be a flurry (200+ is what I've been told) of two bill+ a year S bands brushing up on their... — read more
Two HR friends told me Nike is cutting teams and spending little energy finding jobs for people from eliminated groups. Teams will be removed to streamline and they don't consider who is leaving or staying. Notice will be given to high performers... — read more
Looking for information on what terms, if any, are negotiable during one’s layoff this round. Have heard it’s boilerplate but even at VP level different packages have been given, apparently.
