I have been working at Starbucks full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great people, great environment overall a good company to work for. Good development of employees. Feedback given both informally and formally in the form of six month reviews. Gives you are chance to know what areas you are doing well in and which areas to improve.

Cons

Understaffed. Calling in sick is basically non existent when you are a barista and especially if you are a shift supervisor. Dealing with difficult customers is a given because you are controlling their caffeine intake for the morning but you can develop some lasting friendships and good connections with both co-workers and customers

    I have been working at Starbucks

    Pros

    Free pound of coffee every week, free drinks, cheap insurance, meet a lot of interesting people and make a lot of great friends.

    Cons

    Same problems that always occur with large companies, very strict rules, obvious issues that can't be fixed at a store by store level.

    I have been working at Starbucks

    Pros

    Free whole bean coffee or tea each week, tips hourly, stock options and gains, 401k match, health benefits after working an average of 12hrs a week, great social connections in community and among baristas, resources at finger tips for constant personal improvement.

    Cons

    Some times not recognized for achievements, might be hard to move forward or up after a certain position, and standards constantly changing and can be hard to always "Be on you toes" with the current standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to value your partners. Give encouragement and recognition for achievements and behaviors.
