"You see many women in leadership roles, which I appreciated and is a sign to women that they can grow within the company. However, a good amount of those women didn't have children so I do think doing it with a family is difficult. "

"This has changed since I took a maternity leave. I believe it is now 12 paid weeks."

"I found the work / life balance challenging with kids, especially infants/toddlers, as you're essentially on call all the time as a store manager. The hours can be long and unexpected, which isn't unusual for most food/retail jobs. But with not having another salaried team member, such as an Assistant Store Manager, it can be difficult to bear that alone."

"This company stands for great things. It has a mission that is easy to fall in love with. The culture that the company is aiming for is rarely attainable under such high stress conditions. Especially with little support from management and drastic cuts in labor. "

"The benefits offered by the company are extraordinary. It can be difficult to be a working parent at one of these stores, and I have found that the schedules are not conducive to managing a household with kids. However, to be able to get health insurance, school assistance, and even food and beverage benefits at a non-executive job is pretty unusual. "

"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. "

"Technically speaking, Starbucks doesn't offer maternity leave. However, they do offer short-term disability. You get a 66% pay during 6 weeks after birth of your child, which equals about 50% of regular pay after taxes and insurance. There are a lot of women at Starbucks, but upper level management is predominately male. As a women employee, I feel very supported and see a lot of opportunities. As a mother at Starbucks, I do not feel supported. Family doesn't seem to be at the forefront of Starbucks executive team."

Anonymous Review Image
"While the benefits are good, working for Starbucks is not easy. The hours are long, the customers are grumpy if not down right rude, the pay is subpar, most days are physically demanding, and your experience with the company is entirely dependent the store you work in and how the manager you work for decides to run the store."

"I've been with this company for over 9 years. One thing I will say is if you don't speak your mind (in an appropriate manner)about what you're feeling, your bosses will never know. If they don't know how can they improve? I've learned this this past year with my new boss. It's been working out great, because she knows I'm going to be real with her."
