    I have been working at Community Coffee full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family owned. Company seeks feedback annually via traveling to all major locations for meetings. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities unless relocation is not an issue. Focused on hiring outside of the company for mid-level positions and higher over the past two years

    Advice to Management

    Do not lose the culture . Seem to be watering it down by aggressively hiring outside of the company for key positions

    Pros

    Good coffee but limited coverage on the market

    Cons

    They are stuck up on themselves
    they want to charge 30% more for the coffee in a new market and fire people when they can't sell the more expensive coffee. the market will not stand for the 30% premium thay want

    Advice to Management

    Get in tune with the market place

    I worked at Community Coffee full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company heritage, customer focused, quality products, for the most part quality people.

    Cons

    Senior management has lost focus on what made Community Coffee a premier place to work in Baton Rouge. Turnover now uncontrolled and focus is not on utilizing existing talent but going outside the company. CEO is a micro-manager with the impression he has all the answers.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the Saurage family is to look very carefully at the most senior management of the company if they are concerned why the company is underperforming.
