    Pros

    Starbucks has a great atmosphere & culture. You can also receive health benefits working part-time. Fun, fast-paced environment. It is fun to learn about the coffee & products.

    Cons

    Early hours and sometimes the morning rush can be a little crazy. Some of the new partners that started after me thought that learning how to make the drinks was overwhelming, but I thought the training schedule was fine.

    Cons

    Micromanagement
    Passive Agressive Hell
    Too many people who know nothing!
    Underqualified IT Workers
    Hostile Work Enviornment
    Recruiters lie about great raises and bonuses
    No opprotunities to grow
    30-40 Hours of meetings. 40 hours of overtime is the norm!
    Too many cooks in the kitchen

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people into IT that only know Coffee. You cannot teach someone IT. You have to have experience. Especially when it comes to complex technologies. Recruiters need to stop promising 5-10% raises when you only give 1-2% raises to everyone. Stop wasting money with mismanaging projects. Our department was 50 million over budget because management could not agree. That hurts company profit and what ultimately is the bonus.
    The passive agressive culture hurts everyone. It just mask the real issue of the older generation that is unwelcoming to new people and new ideas. The average new hire leaves within the first 3 years because they get fed up with all of the people who know nothing but have seniority. Most of the people in IT could not get a job in the outside world. They are not qualified.
