IKEA Australia. Sad, so sad.
Co-worker (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 23 January 2017
Very unconventional place! Management style is based on management-by-default not design and fresh initiatives are not welcome or taken seriously. It's simply a practice of ''do things the way they have always been - even if it's clearly obsolete''.
IKEA Australia is emblematic of an American expression - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But this isn't always the right approach.
- Operations are unwholesome,
- Managers are too laid back and don't take the initiative, Can you wonder how IKEA made people a manager without an acumen. Lols!
- Poor staff levels especially within departments which require physically fit men and women.
- The job roster system is not carefully planned and adjusted to suit the co-workers work/life balance because it's always IKEA's daily/weekly/monthly budget FIRST, nothing else matters.
This is the foundation of IKEA job-related complaints, IKEA HR know but really, - IKEA HR couldn't care less.
Sell! Sell! Sell!
