I have been working at Starbucks full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It's great to work for a progressive company that is involved in improving the communities throughout its supply chain.

Cons

Teams are continuously understaffed. Workload continues to rise, while team sizes remain static. Salary and compensation are at the low end of the industry. Very limited company holidays, and minimal vacation.

Advice to Management

Staffing and training need to be higher priorities. IT Professionals expect better healthcare and vacation packages.
