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

Pros

Fantastic benefits: discounts, 401K, and Healthcare; fun atmosphere; new everyday so I never got bored; great product - I was proud of what I sold. The company stays true to its mission statement and guiding principles.

Cons

I felt like I was always on-call; have to have thick skin because customers are always right even when they aren't. Mentally and physically demanding job - you have to really want to do some hard work and use your brain.

    I worked at Starbucks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Starbucks is an amazing company that is structured to treat their people extraordinarily well. Most employees (partners) don't even know about half of the benefits available to them!! At the Barista level, I couldn't imagine having a better job!! I was a Store Manager, the expectations are very high, and the time allotted to achieve them is tight. Maxing bonus makes it all worth it!!!

    Cons

    At the size of Starbucks, there are going to be bad seeds at every level. I was a Store Manager, and unfortunately worked for one of those bad seeds. Starbucks mission statement is the most powerful mission statement I have ever seen....some people just forget about it when it comes to supporting those they work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Global surveys are great to get a corporate pulse, but local PRM's should be responsible for annual market surveys as well. My reason for leaving the company would have been addressed.
