I have been working at Peet's part-time

Pros

Benefits, Pay is above minimum Wage, Flexibility, Ability to work at all locations, Detailed Training Program

Cons

There are many locations and therefore all run differently. Some hire more transfers than new people and therefore employees can appear to become burnt out and jaded, also it makes training of new, outside employees for of a struggle since veteran employees are not used to it.

Advice to Management

I would take what was said above into consideration.

    I have been working at Peet's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome individuals/co-workers once you're below the "Director" level (though a few awesome Directors as well). The product (coffee) is some of the best you'll ever have, and there are some amazing people involved with that. Job duties can be challenging/stimulating on occasion.

    Cons

    Too much of a "do as I say, not as I do" mentality among upper mgmt. An amazing inability to communicate between departments, with no apparent desire to correct. Sooooo much $$ wasted on projects that are not beneficial to the company as a whole. The demands and expectations on the rank and file vs. the level of compensation/benefits are so skewered it's laughable - like it should be an honor to work at Peet's. The company expouses a desire for "work/life balance", yet completely ignores this the minute it's inconvenient. Your opportunity for advancement is mostly predicated on internal politics, not your ability.

    Advice to Management

    practice what you preach. if not, and you're gonna be contradictory plus take advantage of your employees, how about just being upfront about it?
