Heads up. Likely this Thursday. Already have my two weeks in thank god, but oh boy….
The one rule at Nike "Never work as a ETW" 20 some years ago they let my entire project team go after the week prior telling us we are good for the next year. I am a FTE now but only because for many years I turned down opportunity to be a ETW... — read more
A close colleague who recently went to a competing company contacted me with a message that there are a lot of former Nike employees there, and those who were the best at what they do. What has Nike become? A talent nursery? I think the company... — read more
Looks like I'm applying for other jobs outside of Nike now.. The idea of wearing mask 8 hours at work in a cubicle or desk doesn't seem to appealing to me. Not sure about everyone else??? It's already bad enough to have to wear one on a commercial... — read more
In place of my colleague, whom they tried to get rid off in various ways and make him leave on his own, came a person who is neither half interested in the job nor talented. A colleague who used to do that job found a job in another company without... — read more
The strategy function at Nike is a disgrace. So many nefarious things go on in that department that Nike turns a blind eye to because they work with leadership at the highest level. After being in that department for many, many years I can say that... — read more
Anyone have insight on why some people get blacklisted after working for Nike and are unable to get any other jobs with the company? It seems like it’s random. I know a few people that left on good terms, were great at their jobs and can’t get an... — read more
What caused the Nike's best quarter ever and do you think it will be repeated? Not to sound like sour grapes or anything, but is it the result of the company’s brilliant and thoughtful strategy or is one of the primary reasons Nike has had great... — read more
Do they still exist? Never hear anything about it
All I know is that I’ve put in more than 20 years and I’m in a position that I don’t like but I choose not to quit because I’ve got a decent nest egg to retire on and skills that earn me more than just a “decent living”. I’m less than 8 years from... — read more
Like others I know I’m currently pursuing 100% remote work opportunities at other companies. I figure if I have to work 40 hours per week I’m going to do that where I’m most comfortable working (in my own home) and in a manner that best works for my... — read more
With the push to India, there is a good argument that Nike is already doing async remote work. I have easily 50% non Nike city ETWs in my part of the org who will never go in to the office when it reopens. What policies do you see taking root wrt... — read more
What is the status of Valiant Labs now
I wouldn’t say there are many newbies on this forum, but I wonder what their impressions were when they first came to Nike? When I came a few years ago, I was really fascinated by this company and I was full of enthusiasm and desire to work here... — read more
There are two types of emails filling CIS inboxes lately: • “It is with mixed emotions that…[long-time, valued CIS worker] has decided to leave…” & • “Welcome …[so-and-so, filling a brand new CIS position in India / ICC]…” Those in that first... — read more
I love how people keep saying there's no rhyme or reason to layoffs at Nike. There is definitely a method, it is just not the one that makes any sense to us. And they sure as he-l are not going to share it with us. What makes no sense to us, makes... — read more
Did anyone else receive a letter from WageWorks stating that “Nike has determined you are not eligible to receive… this second election opportunity under ARPA… Nike… has confirmed and advised us that employee’s termination of employment was not... — read more
Anyone on here from DPC? Curious if there’s any hope of a VP change? The dark days have gotten even darker.
Isn’t a global meeting going to happen soon to explain to us why we will be happier and more engaged when we go back to campus? Lolz
I worked at Nike for a few years and left on good terms. After that I worked for the competition, very briefly. I changed my mind and would love to go back to Nike. Is it better not to even try it or do I still have a chance of getting a job at Nike... — read more
I refuse to let the incompetent and often corrupt management define the company I've spent the last two decades of my life at. We are better than this. People come and go but the brand remains. I'm still proud to say I work for the brand that... — read more
From what I can see, the number keeps growing consistently. This is no surprise, considering how Nike enjoys mistreating its employees but it should be something that those on the top should pay more attention to. There are only so many competent... — read more
I left almost a year ago, sometimes I visit the forum to see if there are any changes, but unfortunately it seems that nothing is changing for the better here? Moreover, when I read some posts it seems that everything is now worse.
Recently I had a discussion with a colleague about whether Nike made the most of all the opportunities it had. We roughly agreed that the company missed a lot of good opportunities, and that the focus was very often on the wrong things. What do you... — read more
That is, since when do you not trust the leadership here? It is very difficult to work for a company where I constantly expect that those at the top will do everything to better themselves at the expense of ordinary employees. I don't trust them at... — read more
Just got pinged to interview for a security analyst with a focus on inside threats. Analyze user data for internal threats…: I’ve worked for DoD companies that made stuff that goes bo-m and we weren’t this suspicious of our own people. Nice campus... — read more
What I expect from an employer: Fair wages, medical benefits, matching 401, and a good working environment that's safe and has growth opportunities. Nike doesn't pay market, does have great benefits and matching, but the environment is toxic... — read more
All the secrecy, whether it is warranted or not, is never talked about. Nike Tech at least does that in a first-class manner. Apple kind of wrote the book on all this, Steve Jobs just never wanted to work real hard, and then let someone else take... — read more
You want loyalty? Than treat your employees right. Apologize. It doesn't need to be recorded or documented. Pull them aside and say "I'm sorry for what you went through"
Does anyone know if there is a deadline to share these out? I’ve heard nothing about them from my division.
What's stopping me from negotiating my own contract with Nike as a 1099 as a ETW vs getting screwed over by my agency? Serious question. Why not cut of the middleman who sucks you dry? 🤔
The lack of communication and, honestly, lack of vision for Nike Tech is disturbing. Any news about when or if more layoffs and restructure of Nike Tech?
Whether you like it or not, Nike is still very relevant and influential and is far from being close to failure as some here predict. I don't like that, I don't think we deserve the reputation we have due primarily to how badly employees are treated... — read more
It’s pathetic when all that motivates you is your next paycheck. That is now the main and only motive for almost everyone in this company, and it was not like that before. On the other hand, there are more and more things that demoralize me. It is... — read more
Brought to you by stimulus checks and layoffs. Yay!
Just like the CDA these “off” days are going to leave things in a bigger mess than we were already in. That said, APR better be happening and not use these “off” days to deflect!
