    I worked at Lavazza full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Office culture felt more like a family which has it pros and cons depending on what needs to be done that day.
    Coffee, coffee, did I say coffee? It's a fast paced environment in the food and beverage industry with lots of new ideas, creativity and events. I recommend a position in the energetic marketing department, where everyday you are doing something new.

    Cons

    Some structural issues which I assume will some day be repaired. Not much room for movement in the back office.

    Watch out for the people in the Traffic Dept.

    I worked at Lavazza full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free samples of their delicious coffee. Some of the people in the finance dept. are fun to work with. Vibrant, good projects, and teamwork. Tuesdays Lavazza offers free lunch to the staff. Some people are easy going. Good to know about SAP. This year was probably their best year.

    Cons

    Avoid the Traffic Dept. as much as you can. Some of the people are just down right miserable. They don't like to explain or teach you how to process purchase orders or create invoices. One person likes to gossip, and bash anyone loudly. When you try to figure out a problem, they get upset and blame that issue on you. They don't talk. They yell at you to intimidate you into leaving. The traffic dept. does not like new people. They don't like anyone period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of those people who are miserable. There are others who can do a great job.
