For me personally, I'd say it's very unlikely. Do others feel the same?
I heard this in the office, so, take this with a grain of salt. Folks are talking about possible cuts in July, do not have any additional details. Last time the rumors started circulating, things turned out ugly - I hope it's not the case now. We'll... — read more

This WARN thing is BS. There was no warning in 2017. I also heard from a VP that massive layoffs are coming. The new ORG structure goes from 18 to 10 VPs only. Layoffs are going to happen and I also heard that many black badges are going to be... — read more

I like my job at Nike, but I got an offer with significantly higher pay. Does anybody know if Nike has ever offered people an incentive to stay once they say they are leaving - something like higher pay or something to compensate for it? I'd... — read more
You may love Nike, Nike will never love you back. It is a use and discard toxic culture. Managed by bullies & Hr playing gladiator sports with people’s livelihoods. Learn all you can and take it some where else - it’s all smoke and mirrors. not about... — read more
This is some of letter I sent to Mark Parker and Elliot Hill regarding the recent outsourcing of the remaining black badge WHQ receptionists to CBRE. To their credit they did respond to us… but she is still no longer a Nike employee. To Mark: You and... — read more
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
Not an employee here. What’s the rumor on this Avenatti guy?
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!
They are going free shortly...outsourced...

After that massive “footwear failure” in a key game, has anyone heard of layoffs or firings in the Product team??
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.
If you receive an inconsistent you might as well pack it up. I held a senior position at Nike and worked there for over 25 years. You never supported anyone or hired anyone who had an I rating or worse. Managers use it on some employees to get rid of... — read more
