    It has become a 2nd home for me, and that's a good thing!

    I have been working at Starbucks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work doesn't follow you home, sense of community, benefits, pay, discount on coffee and products.

    Cons

    It's a LOT of hard work somedays. Every year they change the way they do things pretty drastically. The dress code is restrictive and sort of ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never expect respect by telling, never forget how hard it is to be at the bottom of the ladder.

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

    Pros

    Some of the best people I have ever worked with; autonomy/flexibility to develop people through systems and programs provided; company culture emphasizes collaboration, risk taking and results; Senior Executive Leaders are very strong; partners care about their customers and each other

    Cons

    Improved focus on results has cost the organization some of its entrepreneurial spirit, too many people trying to fit in instead of grab opportunities for the business; expectations around scheduling of time make it difficult to spend appropriate developmental moments with partners; need for immediate results doesn't allow for key personal learnings; high velocity of change without sufficient practice time often leads to retraining and inconsistencies in execution

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to drive for results but invest more deeply into fewer strategies and tactics; look for ways to improve clarified communication and share specific examples of what excellence looks like during development of new skills; focus in on retention and skill to role alignment; increase field visits to better understand today's store experiences
