Great for job security...
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – May 24, 2017
IKEA is a great company, with a great idea, but lacks great management. I wasted about 3 years there before I realized it was a waste of time. The pay is "OK" if you are happy with it, because it won't change much unless you are FRIENDS with management outside of the business. There is a very bad issue of collusion going on there between management and some lower level employees causing an unfair situation with promotions as there is a lot of family and friends working together.
But, if you are friends with the right people, it can be a promising career until you aren't friends anymore.
Collusion between management and some employees under them.
