Are having wet dreams about their new admin.
Topics regarding layoffs at Nike Inc.
Are promotions and pay increases back on or are we still saying that can’t happen for anyone other than VPs because of corona?
I have noticed Nike in the eyes of other people is a renowned brand and many think it is a privilege to work for this company. After years of working here, after seeing and hearing all sorts of things, I would love to go to a competing company. Is... — read more
You’ll never know why most people are laid off. It can be any of a number of reasons. I’d say 99% are let go for one of the following reasons: poor performance excessive absenteeism a role is eliminated or your role is duplicative ... — read more
For me it is, but I have coworkers who vehemently disagree so I'm curious what others think.
I don't understand why the reasoning behind my coworkers being kicked to the curb has to remain an ongoing mystery? Were they making too much money? Were they one of too many white males? Did they have a record with Hr? Not being transparent with... — read more
Will there be layoffs this week? A coworker mentioned something but outside of that I wasn't able to find any info. I'd like to think they would wait at least a little bit longer in the new year before hitting us with something like that, but this is... — read more
I hope we implode.
It dawned on me today that the company has created a no win situation for us, a truly toxic environment. We spend most of our time hoping and praying we’re not involved in the next round of layoffs. But then when the layoffs are done if we’re still... — read more
I am new in this company and now apart from the general stress of whether I will be fired or not, I feel an additional pressure because I found out yesterday that I am pregnant. I am overjoyed but unfortunately I cannot fully enjoy that happiness... — read more
Leaving Nike was the best thing that could have happened to me. As other people have said, you don't realize how toxic the place is until you are gone. There are so many great jobs outside of the swoosh. Don't allow yourself to feel trapped. You... — read more
Hundreds of employees at Google and its parent, Alphabet, have launched a union, a rare step for the tech industry that also represents the biggest and most organized challenge yet to the company's executive leadership... — read more
I’ve been gone over 6 months. I spent years at Nike, and realize today that I don’t miss anything about the company itself. There are people who I miss, those who weren’t into the political games and actually worked as a team. I still keep in touch... — read more
The ELT and CLT should think hard about this one. Real hard. Or is it that your pockets are so lined that you turn your head? Again, unethical. How do you sleep? You can afford to move on and land your next heavy pay check. Someone needs to... — read more
When I was just starting out I was very young and only now do I see that I have stayed longer than needed in the company. I guess one becomes complacent and doesn’t think long term about career, and then after a few years finds themselves in trouble... — read more
Will we see any improvements or will it be a bunch of different year, same b—s—?
With online sales up by a large margin for the quarter I think we're seeing the writing on the wall for brick-and-mortar stores. People have gotten too used to online shopping and while things might shift slightly back once the COVID-19 threat is... — read more
From the moment he stepped down, to the goal of 50 billion by 2020, the GRAT strategy has been the most successful tax free family transfer ever attempted. Watching the FED keep rates so low, guessing you could drive the company to unthinkable... — read more
Yes, yes, yes, just like that: Nike mastered the art of deception and unethical behaviors that go undetected to its own employees and the public. I work in HR and I know this much is true. I absolutely agree. Are you horrified when you read... — read more
So earnings is set for this Friday, after market-close, before a long holiday break? That’s a pretty classic tactic to bury bad news. Seems a bit sketchy to me.
Oh please. Paraphased from GT call: " Everyone talks about layoffs. This is about growth." ("LOOK OVER HERE INSTEAD!") It's insulting, disrespectful.
Be wary of personnel changes like promotions/demotions/geographic moves where leadership secretly assumes the employee will either decline or eventually end up leaving. Those aren't counted as "layoffs," but they're part of the strategy. NIke is... — read more
I want to believe that things will improve and at the end of the day we will all keep our positions. But the reality is there will always be layoffs, some major and some small. That is the world we live in, made worse by the pandemic. The only thing... — read more
This company has s—ed since Phil stepped down. Ruined people’s lives and Travis should be ashamed. Please leave good Nike people’s alone and make more movies.
Anyone else feeling the ELT lack of reality for the average employees daily lives and the fact that we don't know if we will have a job or not during the layoffs/pandemic? And that we're stressed out by the back to back endless meetings (though they... — read more
I heard the layoffs for my dept will now be in March, just after the SEC death march. Thank you SO much for all your hard work, you're let go!
This week we had most of the EMEA layoffs communicated Did anyone get a line management change and also got a severence package offered
The layoffs are effective Feb. 5 and are related to the closure of that factory, which is located in the same neighborhood as the company's... — read more
I’m not just thinking about the layoffs here. I am interested in what specific changes you would like to see next year and what possible changes are you afraid of? I have never been a big optimist and Murphy’s Law is confirmed in most cases, but I... — read more

This is not a believer or not believer post. Do what you feel comfortable with or not. But, on this Thanksgiving day, let us pray regardless of our religious backgrounds and let us come together for each other in this disheartening/disgusting Nike... — read more
I filled out an online job application today. It’s been over 20 years. I reached the part when it asks to contact current employer. I felt apprehensive and checked yes. I listed my experience and uploaded my resume and the whole time I felt as if I... — read more
Confusing! I cannot keep up with all the mixed messages from the “leadership” team. So, is January 2021 the end of THIS reorganizational play or is it now June / July, 2021? Any insight from anyone? This is also my question. Someone posted it on... — read more
I've been away from Nike for six weeks and despite starting new work pretty much the first day I left I keep feeling like I'm on a long vacation. I didn't even realize how stressed out I really was, how much I dreaded going into work every day until... — read more
Any corporation firing people in the middle of a pandemic while making profits does not deserve to grow. Please boycott Nike this holiday and give to employers who have avoided or made efforts to retain and support the personnel this season.
Do you think there will be Nike Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
At first I was angry. I felt like a discarded old shoe box. Then a week went by and I was finally able to experience the grief. There are times throughout my days that I feel nostalgic for what I believed was a great institution. But now I know that... — read more
It is not at all clear to me what the HR department is actually doing in this company? I mean, what exactly are they doing to help us, their employees? I would not like to cast doubt on their competencies, but they do act a bit incompetent. However... — read more
This is for you JD, AC and RL, RL,is showing up the best, but is catching the brunt of this. Stop the multiple All Hands, they are not helping. All of you are really bad at this and are not helping the situation. Basically, you S—. All of us... — read more
