    I have been working at adidas full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great brand that's focused on developing talent. Very big on giving you the tools to progress yourself down the line and move towards wherever your goal is in the brand. If you have the drive and work ethic you'll go far.

    Cons

    Like many retail brands your experience ultimately hinges on the superiors you have. I've had bosses that have literally opened multiple doors for me and other that literally set me up for failure. Adidas is no exception from this but it does help to make sure your face and name are out there and in good light to help overcome potential setbacks like this one.

    I worked at adidas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Some great people - Staff discount - Company makes an effort to create sport culture in the workplace - In a blue moon, staff who network well may get a promotion to the global head office where working conditions are better

    Cons

    - Staff expected to work around the clock to serve other time zones - Management is very demanding. Will resort to coercive power to ensure you perform. - No work life balance unless your job is your life - Lateral movements into other teams/departments are pitched as "promotions" but dont come with any salary increment. - High staff turnover
