What is health insurance like at Tiffany & Co.?

Pros

Great 401k benefits and Health Insurance is good.

Cons

There is no room for growth and company is not up to date with current technology. The technology goes back to the early 1990s and most of your day consists of dealing with system issues and politics. Poor work/life balance and company offers 2 weeks of sick time but frowns upon it when it is used. Management can't make decisions because they are in constant fear of losing their job. People are so quick to blame because everyone is scared. Rather than fixing a problem the company spends time trying to find out who to blame.Terrible culture and would not recommend this company to anyone

Advice to Management

Invest in technology and look into the future not the past

Great 401k benefits and Health Insurance is good.

How are the career development opportunities at Tiffany & Co.?

Pros

Great co-workers. Consistent hours.

Cons

Pay is absurdly low. You'll spend a lot of time either navigating or being otherwise effected by cartoonish social politics. Many managers and directors come from middle-class backgrounds and see their job as an opportunity to become part of some elite ruling class. It's completely divorced from reality, and actual rich people don't behave like this. The Operations team is expected to say "yes" to every request thrown at them, without any regard for priority. When you're handling $15,000 in diamond jewelry, or have all the cash the store took in the prior day on your desk, you can't just get up and walk away from it to get a customer a glass of water just because one of the sales team is freaking out over it. As ridiculous as this sounds, management can, and has, reprimanded operations team members for not doing exactly this. There are also a lot of cynical efforts made to use Operations people as salespeople, in part because our commission rate is lower (but the hourly *is* higher). HR seems to protect managers who act inappropriately. Countless claims were made in good faith against a store director who acted inappropriately around women and made crucial decisions based (at least in part) on race. It wasn't even a secret that any of this was happening, but no remedial action was taken. Because of this, the store suffered a turnover rate close to 100%. No career growth opportunities, with promotions seemingly based on favoritism or nepotism. Operational expenses are poorly decided upon, like continuing to purchase 15 bottles of silver polish per month, despite only using 1 bottle per month, which leads to spoilage and, ultimately, waste. The company also decided to opt for more expensive hand soap for the bathrooms while simultaneously planning layoffs. Ancient computer systems - younger employees think they're being Punk'd when they're presented with AS/400. Oh, and Google the time they conspired to fire an African-American store manager over race.

Advice to Management

I seriously have no advice that this company's "leadership" would follow. Nobody wants this product or experience anymore, and you don't treat your employees fairly. I'd say the writing's on the wall.
