    I have been working at Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This company values and breeds staff awareness & education about the brand & coffees and teas. Our store frequently had demonstrations to teach both the staff and customers about new brewing techniques. They were one of the first ones to perfect The Clover Brewing Method when it was first released. They were lucky and got some before Starbucks bought the exclusive rights to the machine. Doug, the tea purveyor, even came in and schooled us on all the awesome teas he curated throughout the world. They also train willing staff members for barista competitions and even have in-house contests to keep everyones skills up. If you're interested in the coffee business, this is a very reputable company to work for. Even as a regular employee, it's fun work.
    As far as benefits, a free lb. of coffee a week was standard. I believe you can pay into a 401k after a certain length of employment.

    Cons

    Some of my managers put themselves on a pedestal, acting better than everyone else. I remember two of them causing a lot of stress because of personal MOs. One even publicly shamed me for banking with Chase because they're affiliated with JP Morgan, who used to use slave money or something. Very inappropriate. But, they did know their stuff. Great training program, great advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's easy to become lax in a coffee shop setting, but after working with other companies, I can see that there was way too much internal drama that was not being handled by the store manager. I think more check-ins with upper management about store progress could help keep them accountable for their store's successes/failures. It seemed my store manager knew a lot about coffee, but was not fit to manage other people. Store managers need to strike a balance between the two.
