    I have been working at IKEA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are so many ways I feel valued at IKEA. I have been awarded Manager recognition after being nominated by co-workers throughout the store. I have been called out with words of thanks on our "Thank You" board. I have been personally thanked many times by me direct managers as well as the Store Manager. I have been thanked by those who work beneath my leadership. And most importantly, I have been thanked by the customers in the store. Value - priceless.

    Cons

    As in any business, it is easy to get caught up in the day to day tasks and lose sight of the bigger picture - our vision. While juggling multiple balls, it is sometimes hard to thank ourselves for a job well done. I love IKEA because they bring me back to center over and over and over again.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth of knowledge. We have meetings and brainstorm sessions and huddles, but we don't always let that information permeate all areas of the workforce. Knowledge is power. Share it.

    Pros

    Ikea's company vision and values are very humanistic oriented, inspiring, strong and present. They are the same in every country independently of local culture

    Cons

    The inspiring Ikea vision and values are not as present in some parts of Ikea as others. There is still a lot to be done which keeps it interesting to work there
