    Pros

    You work with great people, flexible hours, good medical plan and lot of freebies

    Cons

    They overwork their managers. Expectations are way too high, and overtime is not payed, even though most managers work over 40 hours a week. A lot of district managers lack professionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from inside of the company, people who've known what it's like to be a slaving barista, shift supervisor, etc, instead of hiring external morons with no experience in the food industry. Their training is way too fast, most of them can't make a decent drink or handle a rush. They also have a tendency to stay in the back instead of being on the floor with their partners and customers.
