    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Paid time off was the onlything that stands out in my mind as a 'pros' at that job

    Cons

    Poor working conditions. Un healthy personal interations. Lectured to instead of trained. The worst company with the most $$ of and job I have had in my life

    Advice to Management

    They are only doing what they are told. It starts at the top.... If upper management does not chance it will just continue a poor cycle.
