Does Starbucks offer dental insurance?

Pros

Benefits are first and foremost. The comprehensive benefits package includes medical, dental and vision, 401k matching, paid time off (based on tenure), Spotify Premium, discounts on food/merchandise, free coffee, financial planning assistance, adoption assistance, college tuition reimbursement, commuter benefits, childcare assistance, and a slew of other benefits. The company will challenge your thinking and how you approach difficult socioeconomic issues with an onslaught of different people. The level of leadership growth you will experience in a management position is remarkable. Finally, the relationships you have the opportunity to develop and nurture is genuine. Some of the best friendships I hold dear to my heart have come from those I've met working at Starbucks.

Cons

The most challenging aspect of retail management at Starbucks is balancing the impossible demands of your team and the high expectations from field leadership. Truth be told, if your dm or regional director does not have faith in your capabilities, they will not support your growth. While the organization intends to do well and lead through the heart - that heart is lost in the local market. Above all else, a passion for coffee is lost and a necessity to improve the bottom-line prevails.

Advice to Management

Reconnect with your teams on a level that is true to the heart and fuels a passion and drive for coffee and TRUE human connection.
