    I have been working at IKEA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits such as 401k matching and low cost health insurance, very supportive management, frequent follow-up of work performance, openness about company goals, strategy, and success. Moving up within the company is very possible if you use the tools available (development plans, training, technical and concept manuals, tuition reimbursement, etc.) and commit to living the values every day.

    Cons

    The bulk of the retailing business happens on the weekend, so people often have to request time off on Saturdays and Sundays well in advance.

    Advice to Management

    Speed up the hiring process, be more transparent about why wages are set the way they are, provide better communication for why the people who get promoted are the right fit for that job, and show your staff daily how they can live the company values.
