You have the opportunity to go as far as you want in you're development. They are very willing to give you the tools you need to grow. There is definitely an old boys club feel and a bit of a click.

Keep a level head. If your passionate, you're "emotional" if your direct your a b****. Same message delivered from male counterpart is acceptable when you may be seen as team by coworkers. Still dynamic where you are expected to be motherly and sympathetic but hold everyone accountable. It's a hard balance

I've worked at this company for many years. The problem comes up when you apply for positions above yours. Frequently, the position has been filled before anyone applies, and they post an opening for appearances. They talk about fairness and development of talent, but it tends to be a clique-ish place. Also, diversity in management is still an issue. It leans toward white. There are "values" and a mission statement, but it's more of an ideal. They don't practice what they preach.

I have worked as a manager for IKEA for over 10 years and have worked in several locations and positions. I LOVE working for this company, Not just as a women, but as a person. They provide so many benefits. Paid vacation, you start with 3 weeks, then you can get up to 6 weeks with tenure ( 10 plus years). Great Medical and Dental benefits that are open to your partners, same sex or otherwise. It has been this was for as long as I have worked for the company. They lead the way. There is paid maternity leave, and you are able to request extra time unpaid, by US standards they are good, but they have a long way to go to match the way the Swedes do it. There is on average a 50/50 split of managers that are women in the US, and they are actively increasing the number of Female Store managers. If you are willing to relocate, the chance to progress is really fast, but you still have fantastic opportunities if you choose to stay put. From a HR perspective, there is an expected code of conduct when it comes working together, that supports working in a environment of fairness, openness, trust, and an open door policy

I have worked there for 4 years and there are definitely more men than women. Both are treated poorly.
