    I have been working at IKEA part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great work/life balance and awesome work environment. Great training and possibilities of upward mobility. You get to work in a community where you all have the same mission, you work together to achieve your goals as a team.

    Cons

    Lifting heavy boxes and furniture, you are often called upon to build furniture for the showroom and that usually involved lifting heavy boxes, lifting and moving the furniture into place. Also you can't sit down while on the job - you are always standing, always on your feet. This can cause problems for some people, especially those who are carrying a little extra weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standing on your feet for eight hours isn't always the best thing for one's body. Some people may weigh a bit more than they should or have control over - therefore standing can be a painful situation. I have no other comments for advice to management at this time.

    I had a great time working at IKEA. The company's culture is great but upper management is untrustworthy and they do not uphold company values. They promote people based on favoritism more than skills.

    Pros

    Great benefits and time went by quickly.

    Cons

    Incompetent and corrupted upper management team. They set unrealistic goals and expect them to be achieved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more fair and consistent.
