Join the employee networks to meet other women and minorities, and spend 5% of your time networking. Nike is all about relationships (like many companies), and forging good bonds with people outside your day job is the key to mobility and new opportunities.

    Maybe. Nike is massive, and doesn't have a single culture. The real employee experience is greatly influenced by your team, and mostly your manager. I'd recommend certain teams, and not others.

I feel that men and women are treated equally at this organization. There are female leaders at almost every level. While Nike has it's issues, they aren't gender based.

    Speaking for a design perspective, I think there is a lot of flexibility. I don't know about other departments though.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    16 paid / unpaid

    The new maternity leave is good. 6-8 weeks of short term disability (8 weeks for a C-section) followed by 8 weeks of "family leave" all 100% paid. Paternity leave/leave for adoption of a child is just the 8 weeks. I feel that the policy would be great if the 16 weeks were extended to fathers and adoptive parents as well.

Nike is great when you are young and able to give it everything you have. Do it when you're young!

    Depends on the department. If you are in product or merchandising there is minimal flexibility.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / 12 unpaid

    Maternity leave has greatly improved in the past two years.

    Maybe. Before kids it is a great place to work. If you have children it is very difficult due to minimal flexibility, work/life balance, travel demands.

Even in tech leadership, as a woman I was respected and never felt any reconsideration due to my sex. Lots of women leaders with strong voices.

Flex time is understood for family circumstances. There are not a lot of women at the very top at Nike, as the hours and time commitment required for that level of achievement does not leave a lot of room for family or personal life.

Nike HR is there to protect Nike first, employee happiness is secondary. There is so much irony, in that Nike is a leader in most spaces yet lags in familiy benefits. Nike's mission is to enable human potential, yet the company is not there for the employee at the level I am seeing other companies support. Recent Family Care announcement is progress, but feels like "just enough" to stave off bad press.

Design Department

January 1970

Nike, specifically at WHQ, is a very family friendly environment. So many young people work here that are just starting their families that it's very common for people to make accomodations for those who need to leave and tend to little ones. Also, you can't walk through campus without seeing more than a few pregnant ladies and babies on walks with the daycare teachers! In addition to that you'll see plenty of women in management and leadership positions. I feel like it's a very balanced environment where you can clearly see paths into leadership. Far from an old boy's club!

    I haven't yet taken advantage of it because I'm still pregnant but Nike just updated their family leave policy to extend the number of paid weeks to 14 for birth mothers. There is also currently a policy of "Transitional Work Schedule" available to parents immediately after returning to work where you can work an adjusted percentage of hours (with the associated adjustment in pay) for up to 12 weeks to create a slow reentry should you want it. I'll be taking advantage of that as well. Between paid family leave, PTO and a transitional schedule, by the time I return 100% to work my baby will be almost 7 months old.
