I worked at Starbucks part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Coworkers, free coffee, benefits package (401k, medical, vision, dental, stock options).

Cons

Upper management, limited opportunity for advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within. There is nothing more infuriating than having an outside hire that cant effectively run a shift, remember drink recipes, or man the espresso bar during peak business hours. I know several quality employees who left due to empty promises of promotion, only to see externals brought in as management.
