    Initially, great; overtime, you'll notice there's a development problem

    I have been working at Peet's full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Healthcare is substantial, especially since California is going to be charging an avg. 35% increase in individual healthcare costs next year.
    The coffee culture is fundamental to the company.

    Cons

    Managers are a hit-or-miss. Either they know how to develop and hold people accountable, or they don't care too much.
    The company shifts upper management too often to other stores; i.e. lack of consistency.
    no clear path to upward mobility, it's presented as a fog, like it could happen/it's all about about what you do or don't do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give clear concise advice to baristas/shift leads wanting to move up with the company. pay your shift leads more!! (taking tips doesn't count towards compensation overall, especially when they only make a dollar more an hour on avg. then baristas).
