    IKEA is a great place to work based upon their benefits. They really care about their employees and got plenty of different benefits to suit different kind of people. I sometimes believe that people within the organisation sometimes take the benefits for granted and complain about small changes in the benefits plan which sometimes occur whilst other companies hardly offer their employees any benefits.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Reading, England

    Ha what benefits? I got a good wage and bat was about it. Since I was a night worker all of the perks like birthday breakfast, Christmas parties in the morning, even morning meetings we always missed out on and they said that if we cared so much we should go out of our own way to be there after being expected to do 9/10/11 shifts. Day workers got so much more out of this company than logs ever did and so much more respect. We didn't even get properly trained because it was after ten and couldn't possibly be at work that long. I don't even get my sick pay, I got promised so much working in this place and have hardly seen any and I just want to sit on the floor and cry over how bad they are to work for.

    If you pay 3.% of your salary into a pension fund IKEA will pay 6.5%. Very good. Medical insurance is also very good including dental cover too.

    The 10% discount off everything is a perk, but it's annoying because my house is now filled with IKEA rubbish that I didn't need (including 2 cactus' on my windowsill that strangely haven't died even though they haven't received water in god knows how long) The Christmas party is banging! Mine was at the Hilton, and the prafitaroles were fit. The food at the staff canteen is cheaper than anything (a meal for 30p) and at Christmas and Easter they put out free food (as you can tell, food is a big incentive for me) The Christmas present they give is smart as well, even though this year was a fit bit (does the amount of food I want show how I much I don't want a fit bit?!) so hopefully 2017 will be a year's supply of KFC, but we'll see.
