    I have been working at IKEA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits for HL2 and above
    Flexible Scheduling
    Wearing jeans to work
    Environmentally responsible company
    Genuine concern for employees well being and happiness
    Co-worker purchase voucher to help buy furniture

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive for part time co-workers (HL1)
    New uniforms are worse than before
    Poor management within Senior and Logistics Department
    No much room or opportunity for advancement with company
    Hard to get a worthwhile raise, (only comes around once a year and very meager if any)

    Advice to Management

    Logs managers are a joke here, all talk and no real work for how much they get paid. Play favorites and have extremely poor training involvement as well as people and task management skills.
