Corporate Policy vs. Store Actions

Store Co-worker (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

ProsIKEA Corporate have may good points for co-workers; such as, “There’s a saying at IKEA companies that it’s okay to make mistakes - everyone does it. In fact, we think it’s a healthy way to learn and improve.” Or “…you get to work as a team member, have fun and get on with the job.”

ConsAt IKEA Store level, you will quickly learn you have made a mistake if question why management treats people differently (based upon who they know). There are actually two teams: Managers have fun and Co-workers get on with the job.

Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate needs to look at what store management is doing not what they say they are doing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
