    I have been working at Peet's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a good place to work. Nice customers, fun atmosphere, cool culture. Great benefits and perks. Flexible scheduling for the most part.

    Cons

    Sometimes management is cliquish and will choose to promote based on personal preference rather than merit or time put in. Overall a good company, but I wish that HQ would spend more time perfecting speciality coffee and tea rather than adding a bunch of new products and sugary drinks. I feel like it has gone from Peet's Coffee and Tea to Peet's Oatmeal and Freddos....

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees and what they need.

    Pros

    Peet's offers a lot of flexibility in regards to scheduling, teaches a team dynamic, and opportunities for leadership training and selling a quality product.

    Cons

    Peet's once provided part time benefits such as stock options for their part-time employees that they no longer offer. In addition, the sick policy runs counter to city ordinances.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to perfecting the core product (coffee/tea) rather than branching out to novelties (oatmeal, tea coolers, etc). Peet's customers are a very special brand of person who are often dedicated to Peet's ethics and integrity toward their product and craftsmanship. Often a wider array of product distracts from the primary area of expertise and causes a decline in the quality of the product (coffee/tea).
