    I have been working at IKEA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You can be sure to find fun people and a challenging environment. I love the fast pace and passionate customers. The culture and values at IKEA are unique. There are great growth opportunities.

    Cons

    The collaborative environment can make decisions take a long time. Yellow isn't the most flattering color. You will work many holidays and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline some processes.

    I have been working at IKEA full-time

    Pros

    * Great Benefits * Fun co-workers * Promotions * Reasonable pay * Nice atmosphere

    Cons

    * Double standards from the management/ steering team * Co-workers are treated like children by management, sometimes * Large turnover rate

    Communicate more with the co-workers and lead by an example. Do not give your employees rules, when you do not follow them yourselves.

    I worked at IKEA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great overall company to work for, above average compensation compared to other retailers, flexible scheduling

    Cons

    Awful communication top to bottom, would sometimes not get schedule until week before, large amount of callouts which penalize people who show up, low non-management coworker morale, too many people in leadership positions who do not know how to lead

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to relate to coworkers, try to promote people based on experience instead of how well they can brown nose, better balance scheduling so people don't go months without weekends off

    Pros

    IKEA is just awesome.. Really. I challenge you to find a better work environment in retail. Such nice people and great benefits.

    Cons

    Not enough responsibility.. Believe it or not. I like to be a bit more challenged at work. And not enough involvement from supervisor. Lack of opportunities within my specific goals and interests.

    Better direction/more responsibility and opportunities for co-workers.
