Nike makes soles but it is soulless

The people that were victims of layoffs were older and higher salaries employees. The company is moving to a different worker profile. Young, technical, cheap, and a transactional relationship in the gig economy. Nike doesn’t want lifers anymore. We... read more

Why we can't prove ageism

From the June layoff the average age was 44. The median age was also 44. Breaking the ages down into 10 year brackets (20-30, 31-40, etc.) showed a perfect curve with the tallest point being the average/median. It's quite clear that there were quotas... read more

REPOST: Age Statistics on Layoff - Looks like Ageism to me!

FWIW, I analyzed the data in the OWBPA Disclosure Statement included with the September severance agreement. The takeaway is that the average age for the 277 laid off was 43.8 years, while the average age for those retained was 38.4 years, a... read more

HR is getting a taste of its own medicine

'Love & Betrayal' - now playing at The Berm

I loved you, Nike. I had a few flings before. And then I met you. Is it possible to fall in love with a company? The brand magic. The swagger of success. Shooting the breeze with our gang in Café 19, watching the sun set over Jerry Rice. Time... read more

New strategy-what are your thoughts?

I can only imagine additional layoffs with the "restructuring" to only 40 major retail accounts. Digital technology will compress the product cycle from 18 to six months or less. With IT being such a disaster how are they going to do this?

I miss Nike

I was laid off in the last round, and unlike what I see from majority of the posts here, I was one of the rare who truly enjoyed working there. I've been with Nike for nearly a decade when I was laid off, and I enjoyed nearly every day of it. It... read more

So long, Swoosh.

I'm glad people are seeing Nike for what it has become... a once-great, money-grubbing, consultant-beholden, soul-less pretender. "Do the right thing", as the maxim goes. Yeah, right. I'm not surprised they axed their most experienced employees... read more

The biggest concern Nike should have is that their most passionate people have now become quiet. They were the magic and spirit behind the brand that drove it to do great things. We once honored and rewarded the 60+ hour a week workers that loved... read more

Layoffs will never stop

Of course there will be more layoffs in 2018, 2019, 2020 and beyond. Nike is witnessing its own bonfire of the vanities. It wallowed in excess for years and is now collapsing under the weight of its own arrogance. Nike's only responses is to chase... read more

More important to be popular than effective

Nike managers know how to use anonymous surveys to target employees they want to fire. This has become more prolific with the use of online anonymous surveys. They will submit numerous responses themselves, all supporting their own manufactured... read more

Can the NDA we signed be considered extortion?

That NDA we were coerced into signing with our severance isn't worth the paper it's written on. They knew most of us live paycheck to paycheck and firing us without notice would leave us strapped, so they dangled their blood money in front of us to... read more

National and local reporters want to hear from you.

We are seeing the decline of a once great brand

In my group everyone laid off in June and Aug were over 40. Coincidence? I think not. Regarding Nike wanting new blood from the outside, that’s another line of fake news. I was brought in from the outside and despite what I was told during the... read more

Sad state of Nike IT

I walk through the building now and the place is deserted. There are lights on in some of the manager's offices but all the doors are closed. The CIO and CISO are nowhere to be seen. It feels like the first episode of the Walking Dead. Empty desks as... read more

Nike ripped its heart and soul out with layoffs of those over 40

Nike is a Petri dish for consultancy companies. Transformational visions are sold into mid level Nike VPs seeking fame and glory. When the vision cannot be realized the consultants earn a return engagement. They blame it on qualifications of staff... read more

And then there were none

I saw most of my team leave in June. I was actually told my team would be spared, that our work was too important and our skills were vital to the security of the network. On judgement day, that proved to be a lie. I was furious at having been lied... read more

I was one of the faceless minions at CIS.

By the look of these posts, the good people are leaving and the only ones left will be the sycophants and those who are only there to collect a paycheck. My new job has taught me the risks to Nike are greater than I appreciated when I was one of the... read more
