    I have been working at Starbucks part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most managers are flexible to your schedule, tons of fun getting to know customers, co-workers are pretty awesome, one of a kind work place.

    Cons

    If you don't know how to handle long lines it can be stressful. Anything that can go wrong will, but that is life, Customers can be really grouchy with they think they are wronged.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep workers up to date with the need to know.

    I worked at Starbucks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly work environment in the corporate HQ. Good people to work with. Weekly pound of free coffee. Excellent product.

    Cons

    Management focuses on weird things in order to get promoted (i.e. "leadership" rather than actual work done). "Leadership" has its own meaning at Starbucks and is applied inconsistently. Promotion paths are not uniform - some people have a thousand hoops to jump through to get a small advance while others breeze through without being given any additional assignments or tasks. Bonuses are only given to managers and pay is wildly uneven within the job levels.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to the work being done by your group. Reward people for a job well done and don't just keep promoting the same people higher and higher when they aren't actually doing their jobs. When the company does well, annual pay raises should reflect it. Average increases haven't been more than 2% in at least 4 years... pathetic when upper management has been making unbelievable money through bonuses and stock options.
