Pros

Growth opportunities. Flexible schedule for everyone but the management. Multiple discounts, health benefit plan even for part-timers.

Cons

Sales driven environment. Students are account for a big part of (irresponsible) employees.

Advice to Management

Train the managers to maintain the sales without putting a pure pressure on baristas.

    Pros

    Stable company, medical benefits decent

    Cons

    Employees are just a cog in a wheel, management more focused on personality and perceived "behavior" than actual performance and productivity, no opportunity for internal movement outside of your specific department, if you want a different role (including lateral) you have to quit and return, organization is extremely top heavy (example - senior manager, manager, supervisor and lead over a team of 3 people)

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are not assets or capital...they are human beings. Consider whether the right people are in the right roles, and if not how you can help them get there, instead of just discarding and replacing.
