    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    IKEA Corporate have may good points for co-workers; such as, “There’s a saying at IKEA companies that it’s okay to make mistakes - everyone does it. In fact, we think it’s a healthy way to learn and improve.” Or “…you get to work as a team member, have fun and get on with the job.”

    Cons

    At IKEA Store level, you will quickly learn you have made a mistake if question why management treats people differently (based upon who they know). There are actually two teams: Managers have fun and Co-workers get on with the job.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to look at what store management is doing not what they say they are doing.
