Nike's Valiant Labs

Valiant labs is the biggest scam on the Nike campus. Lots of talk aka innovation by web browsing not doing. And yes, VP makes Hitler and Stalin look like amateurs. Crazy poor people management skills.

I’ve heard half a dozen people have left Nike’s new business incubator group in just the last month. Lot of rumors about why the exodous, mostly around the VP running it. Anyone know more?

Nike is not 40+ friendly

If you’re over 40 at Nike, you better have friends in high places. This is very much true. Nobody over 40 (it used to be 50 a while back, but that number seems to be dropping rapidly) is safe at Nike. Part of it is higher pay, part is probably the... read more

Question about Nike

My father noticed that all the Nike recruitment ads for positions show mainly young diverse people in pictures. His point is do they actively recruit older experienced people? You can’t tell by the pictures. Also I heard as an employee you have to... read more

Nike promoted incorrectly

What are you folks seeing on the ground? I do not see things changing for the better, on the contrary, it's more layers and overhead - people are confused - I do not think this is helping Nike. Do not get me wrong, I know some kind of change is... read more

The Kaepernick deal benefited Nike after all

I’d say this was smart advertisement from the start, and now it’s paying off. The minor stock drop after the campaign announcement was nothing more than the market reaction to something that was not anticipated, and nothing more. You may like or not... read more

Insights re: going from Nike to Adidas?

I'm curious how easy or difficult it is (generally speaking) to move from Nike to Adidas? More to the point - how open, eager, etc. is Adidas to hire Nike folks? I know lots of people make the switch but I'm wondering if they are chomping at the bit?... read more

Excellent insight

As a senior leader (now gone), I'll share the double-bind some leaders were stuck in. The CFE process was originally designed to set individual goals, in alignment with functional goals that all role into overall company/brand goals. When you meet... read more

Is 'managing up' a core issue?

As I reflect on eight years of experience at Nike in a variety of areas: My observations are that the Sr. Director/VP are hyper-focused on how they show-up to their peers and leaders at the S-and-beyond level. In many cases (not all) there is a clear... read more

Anybody else thinks that the recent lawsuit against Nike is just the start of what might become an avalanche? There are so many things Nike can be sued for, starting with ageism and on. I'm thinking if this works out for the women who filed it, the... read more

Nothing has improved

I see all these articles that claim things are so much better and still improving at Nike, but I don't see it. Nothing has changed. We have same toxic atmosphere, same toxic people in management positions, same inequality and same harassment. Where... read more

Curious to know if any people let go last summer are finding their way back to Nike. Those laid off June 15 are now eligible. Yes, many will not want to go back, but some do.

Career Advancement

Is there any hope for us hard working employees with longer tenure at Nike? I get calls from recruiters all the time, yet I can’t get promoted within my own company. All I see is people with MBA’s who came from outside the company recently get... read more
