    I worked at IKEA full-time

    Pros

    Great friendships made. Fun job with original staff. Fun working environment (sometimes).

    Cons

    "This used to be a Fun house but now its filled of evil clowns"
    Don't know if this is only at the Brooklyn store but the management is really cliche like. If you don't suck up enough you're not moving up at all. Promotions are near to impossible unless you know the right people.
    HR is also biased one manager could have a file of complaints against them and HR will turn a blind eye and tell the co-workers to "deal with it."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to see the people who are actually working and training the other coworkers, you like to keep them on as trainers and "Buddies" but don't like to hear the word "raise." Stop promoting your friends it only lowers moral. I guess Mikael Ohlsson is not seeing that. Also HR needs to listen to coworkers more and stop only taking the team lead and managers side all the time.
