    I have been working at IKEA

    Pros

    The pay is good, the benefits are pretty good and the vacation time is superb. I enjoy working with everyone in my department.

    Cons

    A lot of coworkers don't take pride in their daily routines and accomplish tasks so it makes everyone else's job just a little harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of opportunities to grow there's opportunities to travel and its a very social company to work for

    Cons

    There are a lot of employees so you need to work hard to stand out ...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cliques in the company can be very challenging ... They should be eradicated as its prehistoric and leans toward bullying tendencies ... H R should be taken out of store as they are not nice people and do not help the store at all ....

    Pros

    Good benefits, tuition reimbursement, some of the people you work with can be awesome, leading to lasting friendships.

    Cons

    Management issues (with each other), pay is still below average, schedule fluctuations make for an unstable career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the people who work hardest for you. Don't let them slip through your fingers, only for you to replace them with someone sub-par.
