    Pros

    Awesome Regulars & a very fun atmosphere to work in, if you love coffee and being a barista, it's the perfect place to be!

    Cons

    The pay isn't for someone who has a family! There is not very much room for growth in the company...

    Advice to Management

    Love coffee!

    I worked at Lavazza full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free samples of their delicious coffee. Some of the people in the finance dept. are fun to work with. Vibrant, good projects, and teamwork. Tuesdays Lavazza offers free lunch to the staff. Some people are easy going. Good to know about SAP. This year was probably their best year.

    Cons

    Avoid the Traffic Dept. as much as you can. Some of the people are just down right miserable. They don't like to explain or teach you how to process purchase orders or create invoices. One person likes to gossip, and bash anyone loudly. When you try to figure out a problem, they get upset and blame that issue on you. They don't talk. They yell at you to intimidate you into leaving. The traffic dept. does not like new people. They don't like anyone period.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of those people who are miserable. There are others who can do a great job.

    I worked at Lavazza full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Office culture felt more like a family which has it pros and cons depending on what needs to be done that day.
    Coffee, coffee, did I say coffee? It's a fast paced environment in the food and beverage industry with lots of new ideas, creativity and events. I recommend a position in the energetic marketing department, where everyday you are doing something new.

    Cons

    Some structural issues which I assume will some day be repaired. Not much room for movement in the back office.

    Pros

    Its a good company to work with and job satisfaction and that is one of the macin reason i have been with Lavazza for 5 years and still going on. The management motivates and recognizes the hard work of every employee and awards and gives the recognition.

    Cons

    Well its the basic some cons which all the companies have internally with the operations but other wise its very peaceful to work with this company and its quite challenging as well.

    I have been working at Lavazza full-time

    Pros

    it's a growing company and there is a fully changing enviroment.

    Cons

    Not clear organization, hard to have defined objectives and there are not internal growing path.
    plus a very old fashin, industrial worklife style and a little delegation makes it a good place to work only as a director. middle managment is considered purely operative.

    Pros

    People, professionalism, friendly environment, structured. Nice place to work if you want to play it safe.

    Cons

    Slow, lack of entrepreneur spirit, not agile, very hierarchical, still too much related to and shadowed by the Lavazza family.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a program of change and innovation.
