I have been working at Starbucks part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The benefits are excellent for employees. There is a good sense of job security and a good understanding of the high level of expectations of employees. They encourage employees to grow their understanding and move up in the company.

Cons

There is quite a bit of disconnect between the district level, where many store decisions are made, and the daily work routine of the stores. While you are encouraged to move up in the company, it is very easy for employees to get caught in limbo or strung along after being told about the possibility of a promotion.

Advice to Management

Bridge the gap between each store's individual needs and what the district management believes is needed.
