Pros

IKEA has a lot going for it, huge company that offers a variety of jobs, places to transfer, and benefits that many companies simply cannot offer. The work ethic and model are unusual for a company in the U.S. especially nowadays, but believe it or not—you can climb the company ladder based upon effort and skill.

Cons

The pay—it could be better...but hey, it's retail!

Advice to Management

None, IKEA has staff meetings and encourages coworker input.

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

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, company respects employees, 401k, free gifts, holiday party, if you make a mistake, it's okay.

    Cons

    Store Steering Group makes some odd choices on some of the managers they choose. Usually someone who worked in a store prior to coming to the new location. Customers are animals.

    Advice to Management

    Get with it and really listen to the VOICE results and make the change!
