If they already know that layoffs are a done deal, why can't they just tell us what is going on instead of having us borderline panic about our financial futures until the meeting at the end of the month? please a little decency please, good grief!

Not an employee here. What’s the rumor on this Avenatti guy?
Nike talks the diversity talk mostly in the traditional sense. Gender, Race etc. Important I agree. And easy to put on adds, commercials and monetize. When you shift to the less visible attributes things get nasty fast. Hard to market internal... read more
Has anybody noticed the mass exodus of most experienced employees from Nike? Seems to me that if we are losing some of our best people not to layoffs but to attrition, there's something seriously wrong with the way this company is run currently. I... read more
Being managed out of Nike. Can anyone share their experience or story? I have heard of several going through “plans” at the moment.
Gone are the days when Nike was a family. We are all waiting to get laid off or contracted out or stepped on or pushed aside for someone less qualified with connecs. At least we got the good job benefits ( for now)
why did he have to retire? our heart is gone. nobody is perfect but without the shoe dog nike has become almost completely heartless. without him it seems like nobody cares about us. we are all out in the cold waiting and wandering if it is us that... read more

Any talks of layoffs in DTC?
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?
A honest question? why here and not twitter, etc?
Nike has someone with the title Outsourcing Consultant on staff. Negotiations to outsource child care is in process. The gyms are next. Amazing how quickly ES can destroy PHK’s company culture when you consider the context of the disaster that is... read more

Does anyone else ever wonder if the few companies here with large tech departments collude with other local companies to keep tech worker's wages low and hire mostly contractors? It seems like mostly Visa hires and contractors in Portland metro... read more
I recently heard that Jim Schofield was out as Nike's CIO, has anyone heard as to why?
anyone know why the VP of that division left last week? posted about this yesterday and it disappeared.
The company issued an official press release in which it was stated that a new member of the company's board of directors has been appointed. The news name in Nike’s BOD is John W. Rogers. He serves as a CEO, bot is also a founder and a chairman of... read more
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
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
Do you predict that there will be Nike Layoffs in 2019?
Nike promoted incorrectly. The people in senior director and junior vp roles here do not represent what Phil’s vision. They are nasty cutthroat in it for themselves types. I know a recently promoted director to senior director who has never built a... read more

Does anyone know why the child care executive left?
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
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
A source in a big PDX law firm said that Nike’s firm (who Nike outsources legal cases to) is infamous for purposely dragging their feet every step of the way leaving individual plaintiffs to decide whether they can afford to pursue or go broke doing... read more
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
