    Pros

    Depending on the leadership in a particular department or area of the country, it can be a very rewarding experience. Having had various leadership roles over a 20 year career, the early vision and culture was strong and all partners (employees) worked together as a team to support the company mission and business growth. Individuals were respected, developed and recognized for their contributions, and rewarded accordingly.

    Cons

    Answering to Wall Street has become the driving force, and it is the politically motivated, competitive, bottom line focused individual who is rewarded, often at the expense of their peers, direct reports and the culture the company "says" it holds dear. This is not unlike many large public companies, just be aware that in many cases, they no longer "walk the talk".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many extremely talented, tenured partners have been worked out of the company the past few years. It is widely understood and shared across the industry, that highly compensated individuals are being replaced with lower salaried individuals as a cost benefit. A high performer can all of a sudden be singled out, and almost bullied, to move on or be terminated. Previous contributions, success, recognition through position promotions no longer matter, making budget and saving money does.
    Don't hide behind the mission statement principle that partners always treat each other with respect and dignity. Many of the partners mentioned above experience otherwise.

    Pros

    Great Benefits with only 20 hours a week, 401K, Stock options, Tuition reimbursement, and paid time off.

    Cons

    Working on the floor can get hectic due to fast pace environment. The stress to sell coffee can be overwhelming at times.
