Just another big box retailer that puts hourly co-workers first; your screwed if you are a manager.

I worked at IKEA full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Benefits, PTO, employee discount, don't have to buy work clothes. If there is good store management the place can be fun to work at. If not, it is a living nightmare.

Cons

Steering group and corporate office that has no clue as to what goes on in the store. They manage from a desk and will always be in meetings. They create work groups just to be in more meetings and avoid the co-workers and managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop sitting at your desk or in meetings and see what is going on in the store.

    I worked at IKEA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    tuition assents, friendly work environment, and yearly holiday presents.

    Cons

    When they bring in mangers who have never worked for an IKEA they don't understand the IKEA culture. Its seems that some upper management hire female mangers based on what they look like and not there qualifications.

    I have been working at IKEA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are nice - open, friendly and ready to share their knowledge. Job is challenging, there are many opportunities to develop and you can move in organization vertically, horizontally and to different countries.

    Cons

    It is ever changing environment and you need to adapt and learn something new all the time just to keep up. Decisions are made slowly as they are questioned and looked at from many different angles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
