Was a great place to work
Goods Flow Team Lead (Current Employee) – College Park, MD – July 26, 2017
When I first started to work the for the company it was a great place. Over the years, it has gone down hill. A new structure has been implemented, where a lot of managers and specialist are being forced into lower roles. After years of being with the company you either accept the new position IKEA offers you ( for some this is making significantly less due to the lower job level), or find a new job in the new structure prior to the go live date. Go live date will be in October 2017. If you do not find a new job in the new structure you will be fired. Co-workers are supposed to be mapped into a new role, based off a competence profile each co-worker created. The profile can include jobs inside and outside of IKEA, degrees held, and special skills. Co-workers were told we would be mapped into a like for like position. It has turned into a popularity contest. It seems co-workers are getting positions based of how well they are liked and not about skills alone. I have worked for this company for many years and in fear of my job security.
