    I worked at Starbucks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company does interesting work, and it's satisfying to work for a recognized brand name. The pace of growth presents various interesting opportunities.

    Cons

    The things that made it's culture special have large been pushed out by a need to meet Wall Street expectations. The politics, infighting, and maneuvering are unavoidable and at times vicious. Leaders are more often rewarded for self promotion and who they know than they are for building sustainable programs and exporting talent.

    Pros

    Brand recognition, working here adds value to your resume as they are known to be a great place to work and have had phenomenal growth - Team atmosphere, at the regional level there is a strong attempt made to make every contribution important and to celebrate successes

    Cons

    Economy forcing cutbacks and movement away from their mission, morale is lowering daily at the district level, making partners feel they cannot acheive their goals and are not supported and are not trusted to make the business decisions daily they used to have control over - very difficult to acheive the balance in service requirements with running a strong P&L

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what made you big - all movement away from "walking the talk" is forcing talent to look elsewhere and making it harder to recruit good talent
