    Pros

    Great place to work during school, or during job transition

    Cons

    Sometimes a bit too fast paced. Communication from top dogs never really gets to Baristas.

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing things that might make customers mad -- like cutting the gold card program. That just leaves the baristas to explain why Starbucks is trying to con them out of money.
