    I have been working at Caribou Coffee full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some great people as peers and employees. Fun environment. Really great product. Good practices where the product is concerned. Most peers have great passion

    Cons

    Low pay. High expectations with certain promotions - meaning can be pretty pushy. Good sales, profit and people management sometimes not enough to earn better wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust is getting better with employees, but you're sometimes a bit too keen to "work out of the business" employees that have been around a long time

  2.  

    They have little to no appreciation for their employees

    Pros

    Good perks. Great team atmosphere. Good training system.

    Cons

    Lots of effort put into their image and promos with little regard for their employees. Expect their employees to put in extra time and energy without getting anything in return.
