    I worked at IKA Works full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IKA offers subsidized lunches two times a week.
    Generous paid holiday leave between Christmas and the New Year.
    New facility with lots of natural light.
    Quality products

    Cons

    IKA does not offer competitive pay and typically had not offered bonuses. Raises; even with an excellent review, are minimal. The environment is very toxic and people do not strive to maintain a professional atmosphere, despite the polished appearance of the facility and the employees. The company as a whole is very superficial and cares little for the well being of their employees. Many managers are very poor and do not provide the structure and support that their employees need to flourish, grow or perform well at their job. Some managers resort to hostility and make the work environment unpleasant. There is a lot of sexism and favoritism in the company. What is good for one is not good for all. Rules are only applicable to some individuals. The lab and process division seem to be treated differently. The lab division will go on elaborate outings and trips, where the process division does none of this.
    There is little room for advancement or growth int he company. There has been a large amount of turn over in the past 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those that are deserving. Provide competitive salaries. Ensure that employees are being treated fairly, especially when considering race and gender. Be open to suggestions. The high rate of turn-over is telling that something needs to be fixed. If multiple people have complaints about a manager, listen to them, there is probably something to what they are saying. Turn-over will continue with poor management - look at your managers carefully. Really listen to what is being said in exit interviews, people typically don't leave unless they are really unhappy. Remove the drama from the work place.
