    I have been working at Starbucks part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In NY Metro area, starting pay is $9.00/hr plus tips for a barista. You are eventually given small raises based on performance on a six month review. If you work in a store with good regulars, competent management, and large tip incomes, it is a great place to start. After a year, you receive employee health insurance benefits if you work more than 20 hours, and receive free stock in the company.

    Cons

    You will be required to serve the scum of humanity their diabetes-in-a-cup with a smile on your face. If you have incompetent management, the job can be nigh impossible. The scheduling is variable, and the pay just isn't enough for a long term job. Either have plans to move up in the company, or find a better job once you're able to.

    Advice to Management

    Please for the love of Howard Schultz form the schedule for the week at least before the Friday of the week before, and take care of your partners. If you lead by example, and take care of the Partners, they'll be happy to do the impossible for you.

    I have been working at Starbucks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of passionate, young professionals in the company. Very big on getting partners immersed about its coffee offerings. Work life balance has improved over the recent years. Overall, an interesting company to work for, as they have roles unique to the retail store business vs. other major consumer good companies.

    Cons

    Operates similar to a start up where everyone has their own ideas of running things. There is some chaos due to constant change up of existing business processes. If you enjoy that type of environment, this may be a good company to work for.
