I understand that some people might be unhappy but Adidas is still one of the better places to work - and not just in our industry. When I hear from my friends what's been going on at their companies I'm grateful to be working here. Yes, there are some layoffs but I can deal with that. At least we don't have as toxic work environment as Nike, among many other things.

when you compare what's going on here vs nike I am convinced it is a much better place. Look at what went down this last week across the river. VP of NA is connected to a major reselling scandal through her own son and their President H O N is also connected to it. Talk about a lack of integrity and ethics.
If you expect any pay increase in an economic downturn where retail sector is being ravaged due to a pandemic – you are not dealing with reality
At LEAST we're getting a raise AND we still have jobs that provide income to live during a pandemic. You should be grateful or move on. I haven't seen much turnover in my department nor other departments. I've been there over 7 years. Their retirement,medical & FTO is stellar compared to other companies of this size.
Adidas is a good place for mediocre people. The best ones use the company as a trampoline to land bigger and better roles somewhere else. Adidas does not pay for performance, and offers low base salaries with low increases for stars. Furthermore, the company want people to work in the office full time. So, the best ones go. Just look at the turnover of directors and senior managers. The ones that leave, are the good ones. The mediocre ones stay as they value safety more then maximizing their potential. I will resign after my bonus gets paid.
Nah adidas is f—ing garbage. they delayed pay increases a whole year and after the evaluation I got a 1% pay bump, so nothing in 2020 and 1% in 2021 sure as hell doesn't even keep up with cost of living. I know people that have been here twice as long as me (some qualified for sabbatical) and are still at the same pay level and have never even been promoted. at least I'm not them I guess.
