    I have been working at IKA Works full-time

    Pros

    I've found the people at IKA to be respectful towards one another in a professional manner. When the owner visits the Wilmington subsidiary, he'll walk around and politely greet everyone. The CEO knows everyone by name, and respectfully greets IKA employees when she's walking by. IKA also makes a conscientious effort in employee appreciation. From professionally catered Christmas parties, to subsidized lunches, free yoga classes, employee exchange program, IKA kids camp, free farm produce, and surprise German chocolates at Easter, IKA does more for its employees than many other companies. IKA also provides fair pay and benefits, as well as a beautiful modern building to work in. Vacation is better than most US companies and time is managed in a honest manner.

    Operations at IKA are very well managed. Overall business seems to flow smoothly through the facility. There is a healthy pool of experience at IKA, and well qualified employees in both the senior and entry levels. The business system at IKA works well, supported by its continued growth in sales and operations.

    IKA’s products are the highest quality in both of their divisions, Laboratory and Processing. IKA continues to design and offer new products to grow its market share.

    Cons

    As IKA continues to grow, it's evident that more manufacturing space is needed. Furtunately, IKA is expanding the US facility to increase manufacturing capability and capacity.

    I have been working at IKA Works full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people that work here are very kind and fun to work with. Lots of time off family-orientated.

    Cons

    CEO does not treat everyone fairly she clearly has her favorites. Treats certain people with little to no respect rude at times. Very unstable work environment poor planning poor applications that require babysitting not sophisticated enough for you to perform your work duties in an effective And Timely manner. Very disorganized which makes it difficult for one to focus at the task at hand with numerous interruptions and not have enough people to cover. Poor management and there are favorites. Also, 4 people fired within 3 mos.

    Advice to Management

    You need a new CEO and revamp your management teams or send them to managing classes so they are aware on how poor their skills are perhaps their team will do better.
