      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Community Coffee full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Great Product and a lot of good people to work with. The benefits are pretty good considering its a smaller company.

      Cons

      Limited growth opportunities due to size of company.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your people and do not rush growing too quickly as it puts strain on your people to do manual tasks instead of automating things correctly from the start.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Community Coffee full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      The paid time off and some co-workers.

      Cons

      They don’t promote from within everyone higher up has been brought in and changed the culture of the company from what it was based on. There’s no room for growth and management is poor. There’s no work life balance on holidays they expect you to work weekends to make up for the missed day. Lack of support and a toxic culture.

      Advice to Management

      Go back to taking care of your people. Every new idea you have isn’t a good one. Ask and actually listen to people who actually work in the trenches and not the clueless “yes men” you call managers.

      I have been working at Community Coffee full-time for more than 6 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

        Micro management- ANY salesman can be terminated at any time because it is IMPOSSIBLE to fulfill all duties and responsibilities required by Baton Rouge mgt.

        Lighten up on route salesmen-I assure you morale is low

        I worked at Community Coffee full-time for more than a year

        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
