Topics regarding layoffs at Nike Inc.
Looking to the Layoff forum to get thoughts on the All Hands Call this Thursday. Will JD come to the table with any actual legitimate information anyone gives two sh*** about - or is going to open with the same blasé BS as expected and then being 55... — read more
Unless you're a VP, forget about it. You're f*ked. Do the "right thing" means nothing anymore. We're basically told to Sht The F*ck Up. We're not aloud to talk with anyone, period. If you do, you WILL BE FIRED. Gestapo at it's finest. I'm... — read more
Is there anyone who feels as if their talents and productivity are being mismanaged? I’ve been feeling this way for quite some time but I’m not sure if it’s just me or if this actually happens to others. While I enjoy my work sometimes I wonder if my... — read more

Looks like Nike is claiming that the people quitting are actually lay offs according to Footwear News. Essentially, all that said no to the vax quit and Nike is spinning the story in the news to look favorable for them, when they actually are having... — read more
I have stopped attending zoom cafe meetings employee all hand calls because “leaders” are literally reading off a script. Zero authenticity. Me too. I believe many of us have given up on those meetings? The reasons are numerous and have really... — read more
I see so many people calling Nike the worse place to work and many other choice words. But it's not Nike you should be mad at. Nike is the same company it always was. What has changed is its leadership. That's who you should be angry at. The... — read more
Never talk about Fight Club. Welcome to the new Nike.
Where are you? Tell us the truth, is this our de–h sentence? Why don't you care? Worst case, just tell us that the company is up for sell. Tell us the truth. Nothing? Silence?
I don't want to run away. I want to stay and try to fix the company. I've been here far too long and invested too much of myself to simply walk away. But at the same time, I know that I'm way too low on the totem pole to be able to do anything that... — read more
From one FTE to any ETWs out there. Yes the pay is s–tbecause shift takes 1/3 to 1/2) and you’re mired in bu—tJust remember that there are leaders out there who appreciate the work you do. When something doesn’t go your way, it’s–tbecause... — read more

How do you view the company reducing the number of traditional retailers that sell its goods? There are always pros and cons.
In the beginning it was nice to WFH, I hung out more with my kids, I thought I somehow had more time for everything and it was fun. Not anymore. I am so overwhelmed with various obligations, and I am constantly on the verge of burnout. Some may not... — read more
There are many things that are not ideal here and that people complain about, lots of testimonies from those who flourished after leaving here, however, I was very disappointed by the layoff. Nike was my dream company which I came to very young, I... — read more
Because Nike wasted money on the campus https://www.oregonlive.com/business/2021/04/nike-contractors-file-100-million-in-liens-over-headquarters-expansion.html
It seems like every month I think "okay, we have hit rock bottom and it can't get worse than this" and every following month Nike manages to prove me wrong. Morale is getting progressively worse, managers are getting progressively more insufferable... — read more
Nike ELT members are the most incompetent bunch of people on the planet are living off of the brand name. How else do you explain one scandal after another? Yet, the keep parading the 5 Maxims. The “do the egg right thing” one makes me laugh (more... — read more
add this to the running list of all the ways Nike is an awful company https://www.oregonlive.com/business/2021/04/nike-contractors-file-100-million-in-liens-over-headquarters-expansion.html
I asked myself that today as I read about a former executive that plead guilty to alleged wire and mail fraud. What happened to the integrity of the company? With everything that has occurred within the last few years it’s no wonder Nike’s image is... — read more
I keep hearing that some people got laid off, and I thought I would be safe at least for a while. Layoffs do happen, but no one has any insight. That uncertainty is really exhausting. They could be a little more transparent, right? The employees of... — read more
Let's be honest, the situation at Nike is so bad right now that being laid off would come as a relief. Yes, having no job is scary but how much worse can the feeling be than the constant stress we have to deal with day in, day out working here? At... — read more
Former Nike employee - left the company on my own over 5 years ago. Mid level mgmt is a joke. All they care about is making the next promotion, and if they don't get it year after year they take it out on their employees. They also like to cause... — read more
“There is a tacit understanding that in exchange for preferential treatment, leaders are the first line of defense against threats to their people. In the world of business, however, that social contract is breached when leaders sacrifice those in... — read more

"This is an unfortunate situation where a large brand such as Nike, which aggressively protects its own intellectual property, has chosen to leverage another brand for its own gain. The Postal Service is disappointed in Nike’s lack of response to... — read more

Prison is the next stop in the subpar DJs world tour. His pop up retail prowess won’t be appreciated there. Wonder who is SET to go next after he squeals?
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/02/business/economy/zero-corporate-tax.html Nike's combined effective tax rate for 2018, 2019, and 2020 comes out to -18%!
That's what I did. I tried to move my career forward at Nike for years but there were too many friends, in-laws, and a—kissers ahead of me. In the end, I gave up and decided to switch companies three years ago and I couldn't be happier. I'm finally... — read more
I've been here for over a year and I can safely say that this is the most unprofessional group of people I've ever worked with. I've never seen so much incompetence, laziness, lack of care about the end results... This inevitably leads to bad... — read more

I miss that old Nike which had a lot more innovation. I am not saying that there aren't any innovations now, but it is clear that the passion and energy, which stemmed from a great commitment to work, is no longer there. I may be wrong, but it seems... — read more
