Pros

Great atmosphere. Endless benefits ranging from cheap insurance to discounts with other companies. Upper management is big on coaching instead of treating you like you're disposable. They look at their employees as an investment.

Cons

A lot of contradicting expectations. There is always a strong pressure from every angle, and sometimes it gets very overwhelming.

Advice to Management

Work a few days in the baristas shoes and realize the pressures they are under.

    Pros

    Great employees (sometimes), free drinks, looks great on resume, good benefits, good products

    Cons

    Met alot of unpleasant people (number far surpases that of other jobs), not very rewarding, no room for growth

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better room for growth in the company. It seems people will stay in the same position for 10 years, despite excellent performance.

  2. Great, Fast-paced atmosphere

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Free pound of coffee or a box of tea every week
    30% employee discount
    Stock option reward every year

    Cons

    ALOT OF WORK!! you are responsible for EVERYTHING, from making drinks, being a cashier, being a coffee salesman, restocking inventory, washing dishes, and cleaning the bathrooms, and more depending on the store. And its a very fast-paced environment. If you cant handle multi-tasking, then youre gonna have a hard time at this job, but once you get used to it, you'll love working there.
