    I have been working at Tiffany & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Great team for the most part

    Cons

    DVPs defer to everyone else. Do not genuinely care about most issues unless upper management points it out

    Advice to Management

    The lack of concern for low morale and unfair viewpoint regarding promotions is very discouraging. Also having inefficient managers who are just good at pushing their work onto others is hurting productivity.

    Pros

    Friendly and intelligent people who are passionate about the success of the brand.

    Cons

    Recent changes in upper management have caused an environment of inconsistent strategy and path forward. Opportunity for this to improve with newly appointed CEO.

    I have been working at Tiffany & Co. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a great brand to have on your resume. Some teams are known to work really well together and be collaborative, unlike some other companies in retail/luxury retail where coworkers are known to be much nastier. The dress code in headquarters is now pretty casual, which is nice. There's a lot of excitement around the new Design Officer's first year/first collections. Reed Krakoff -- wheee

    Cons

    Salary is lower than market. Very little opportunity to move upward since the higher up you go, the more people love their jobs. Directors and VPs LOVE it and almost never leave, so there are a lot of lateral moves employees make in order to grow; otherwise, they leave. I've worked in 7 other companies and I've never seen the amount of whispering and hushed conversations as I've seen at Tiffany & Co. It's very strange....

    Pros

    -Great discounts... that's about it at the current moment.

    Cons

    Where to begin. Horrible management, I mean the worst I have seen at any company I have worked for. Managers that curse and scream on a daily basis, pretend to work, make racist remarks, stay in there office, complain about their employees being stupid. That's just to name a few of the things I've seen over the past years. The store has been hemorrhaging employees to the point there is no one left. No one wants to come...

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! You have amazing empoyees that have worked here a very long time and are looking elsewhere since the management you are employing could care less about us. I wouldn't employee half the management to run a strip club, much less a almost 200 year old american iconic luxury company.

    Pros

    Great company and great benefits. Very beautiful environment to work in. Interesting work, and good work / life balance. Good potential for career growth.

    Cons

    Cruel department head, and upper management that enabled that behavior. I've heard that it has since changed as there has been much turnover, so things are likely much better.

    I have been working at Tiffany & Co. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The merchandise is a product you can get behind. Employee benefits are generous. Great sales, operations, and store level management employees.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not an option. The company is lacking a voice and a clear path. Current CEO has not proven his leadership to the individuals at the store level and that makes company initiatives difficult to get behind. The message is always changing with no clear explanation or expectation. Upper Management (MVP's and Up) check the box and have no idea what is going on...

    Advice to Management

    Get back to what made T&Co. great. Really look into the operating hours of the store and actual market needs. Quit hiring outside the company and develop and reward those in the inside. Return to the time when work/life balance was a priority. Quit pushing out more initiatives and go one month letting your store managers and directors actually lead their stores as they feel it needs to be run - you will be pleasantly...

    I have been working at Tiffany & Co. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Management teams are hit or miss. Having been with the company 5+ years I've seen my fair share of bad managers, but the good ones tend to stay for awhile and continue to move up in the company. Always remember the big picture. As a Sales Professional you're expected to make your goal...that's obvious. But the management team and company are aware that making it 12 out of 12 months isn't feasible. They are, in my experience,...

    Cons

    Unless you want to go into retail management, the only other way to move up in the company is to move to New York. Upper management visits (every 2-3 months it seems) generally consist of them meeting with store managers/directors and barely talking to the lower level employees (ie: sales professionals and operations team). Some favoritism, but if you make enough noise about...

    Advice to Management

    Build a culture of effective communication, open dialogue, and camaraderie among staff. A cheerful/happy staff makes the day go by a lot quicker and ensures employees look forward to coming to work. Make sure there is a clear (and fair) distribution of work among security, operations and sales. One department can't thrive without the support of the other. Also, if the management team is organized, it will help everyone...

    Pros

    Decent benefits and good employee discount

    Cons

    Lack of respect from upper management. They do not appreciate hard workers. Everything is based on favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the basics of customer service and maintaining a positive work environment for your employees.

    I have been working at Tiffany & Co. full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, the name looks good on a resume if you want to continue with luxury sales, an American company steeped in tradition (it's been around since 1837)

    Cons

    Stay away from any sales-related positions with the company (sales professional, sales manager, assistant sales manager) as the sales goals given to you as a sales person, or the responsibilities given to you as a sales manager, are entirely unreasonable. You'll be given conflicting tasks to complete which are assigned by members of the upper-management team in New York, people...

    Advice to Management

    Consult with sales professionals who have been with the company for a while and know how to work with the clientele when it comes to implementing new policy. Treat employees like human beings rather than just cogs in a machine and tools to boost your stock performance.
