Store Manager

I believe Starbucks is committed to their mission and values however translation can get lost down the chain of command. It is a business after all so it needs to profit but accountability and threat state of doing a good job is a fine line that often I feel gets crossed. "This is an expectation that must be met or else we will follow up with a performance conversation..." those types of comments often leave a pit in the stomach and make employees more terrified to speak up if they make mistakes and try to cover it up or fix it before it is made known to upper management. Making mistakes is part of the learning experience and journey and should not be made to feel worthless, especially when over 90% of mistakes are easily fixable.

    At entry level it is highly flexible, at store management level I believe it is extremely inflexible while upper management continue to put restrictions and expectations on scheduling practices that often don't leave a good work life balance. Along with constant communication while away from work you never feel like you have time off. Draining and upsetting considering such great benefits and morales that the company seems to offer.

It depends on what store you work at and the manager there.

Starbucks is an ok company if your manager knows his/her job. If not you are screwed.

Great company to work for, treats both men and women equally. I do feel like there could be more women in upper management roles though.

I think maternity leave could definitely be improved - you get 66% of your pay for 6 weeks, and after that it's unpaid or your return you to work.
