    Pros

    Coffee culture is everywhere - if you are passionate about Coffee - this is a great place to work. The coffee benefit is also very neat - 1lb per week, and a good discount in the stores as well - very handy to have this. There is also a nice bonding betwen

    Cons

    Managers put themselves behind locked doors and act as if they are in an Ivory Tower - everyone else is a necessary evil. IT is horrible in this regard - Director level and above are totally disconnected from the rest of their staff members and especially disconnected from the business. Not a single one has been in a store, nor do they understand the business. Truth be told, not a single director or above in IT knows anytyhing at all about technology either - I would be $100 that not a single IT manager could diagram a network, nor could they explain what TCP/IP even means - yet they are screaming and yelling about delivery dates and process. I would not recommend IT to anyone who has career aspirations other than to be a box checker on their new PM software which is riddled with issues and will never work - they have tried to implement Project Server - they have fired 5 different PM's who have tried to make it work - the reality is.... It will never work so they will just keep firing PM staffers who cannot deal with it - overall - IT is not a safe place for professionals to work - if you are just out of school and need money for beer - this may be a good place.

    Director level and above are also way too young and have no experience managing a staff - most are IC's who did a project or two, and were promoted but have no people management skills which has translated to over 25 PM's leaving the past 6 months - and many more are looking to go the first chance they can.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the jobs you support - if you cannot do the job of those you manage - you dont deserve the title.

    Pros

    A great place to work and get to meet people from the area. The headquarters is in an awesome part of town.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty low for baristas and sometimes you must deal with unruly customers.

    Advice to Management

    Better compensation for those in the stores.
