I have been working at Starbucks full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

There's great satisfaction working for a company whose history and core are built on the human experience. We continuously come back to that to drive business decisions.

Cons

Currently the company is struggling in balancing core values (commitment to people) with the aggressive business growth strategy. It's not an easy task to balance unwielding commitment to customers, employees, and community while living up to the responsibility we have to Wall Street. I believe our leaders are doing their best to uphold both, but many of those in professional services are paying the price.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Prioritize, be transparent, and listen to your people. We are trying our best to hold the duct tape and bubble gum as we do believe strongly in the mission, but we need a bit of courageous leadership right now to get us to tomorrow. Cut the fat (ie chair warmers), reward the hard workers, and believe in the possibilities of your people.
