Portland has about 1000 employees which seems like a lot respectively but it has a small campus feel where people create friendships through working and participating in the activities that are offered: working out at lunch, happy hours, workshops etc. English is the main language. It's small enough that getting around the city is relatively easy (mass transit, biking, walking distance to bars/cafes/restaurants). There is a vibrant arts, foodie and outdoor culture. Live is close proximity to the mountains, the ocean, wine country. adidas America has professional basketball and soccer teams as well as semi pro hockey and baseball teams.
