Pros

Benefits for part timers (minimum 20 hours/week)
Free coffee (1 lb to take home each week)
Flexible work schedule
Fun and interesting, fast-paced
Opportunities

Cons

Your team and management make or break your Starbucks experience. Mine was very good for the first several years.
You will probably make minimum wage starting out
You will have to get your hands dirty, cleaning and taking out trash
There is a lot of product knowledge to remember

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep close watch on your store managers, even the ones who seem to be doing really well. Listen to your "partners."

    Pros

    Starbucks has a very diverse work environment. They provide domestic partner benefits and generally cultivate an environment of acceptance.

    Cons

    I think that while the company has wonderful ideals, those ideals may necessarily trickle down to practical day to day workings within certain stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management could benefit from remembering that employees manage a life outside of making coffee for the masses.
