Pros

The mission statement is what keeps the company desirable.

Cons

Too many chiefs and not enough indians. Inequalities in pay and bonus. Partner Relations team has no soul/is a figure head. Managers are external hires who hire externally. The new hires are promoted faster and more often than the long term partners. Too many senior positions posted which eliminates internal growth and advancement opportunities for long term partners. Less coffee and more cream.

Advice to Management

Job titles need to be updated based on the standard of industry. Using generic job descriptions only cheats the partner pay equity and results in burnout and dissatisfaction. If a long-term partner leaves, ask why and show sincere concern to address the issue. But in a majority of cases, the problem are the dept. managers and partner resource generalists. To Howard, encourage/demand managers to promote from within, there are plenty of partners who have experience and formal education.

    Pros

    coworkers and management are awesome. everyone is there for you when you have a problem and everyone works as a team. fun times have been had working here. benefits for part time employees is awesome. raises on a regular bases which is actually really nice. also product knowledge you gain sticks with you even after years of not working for Starbucks.. also easy to pickup extra shifts.

    Cons

    pushy and demanding customers is to be expected.. very snobby at times. some can be very irritating with demands and lack of actual knowledge of the product. also 3 strikes rule for tardiness..

    Advice to Management
