    A fine company..if your in Sales or Management

    Current Employee - Branch Security Officer in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Branch Security Officer in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Tiffany & Co. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits that start on your first day of work, including a 30 - 50% employee discount on Tiffany products. Not too shabby!

    Cons

    Working security at Tiffany & Co. is almost like being a broken wind-u toy. They wind you up with all of the security training and assessments they put you through, but instead of releasing you, they put you at the door where you stand guard all day (8 hours or more) and serve basically as a doorman. The problem with this is real doormen actually make A LOT of money! security acting doormen do not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Security Professionals should only ever be at the door during the presence of suspicious persons in-store. Besides that, we should be allowed to work undercover in plainclothes.

    I worked at Tiffany & Co. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Employee discount
    Good team environment

    Cons

    Management micro manages excessively. Questions small decisions, does not have enough faith in employees. As a supervisor i was told it was my job to babysit employees. Management distrusts that employees are working hard.
    Little room for advancement.
    Senior management is very old TCO and not changing with the times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees to make decisions rather than treating them like toddlers.
    Review pay scales, wages are well below industry standards.

    Pros

    Continuous improvement in processes was encouraged. Always strived to improve. Appreciated employees.

    Cons

    Very incestuous relationships with long term vendors. Also felt like walking on eggshells a lot. Came in one day to find security all around building and management laying off people left and right. I did not get layed off but always felt like I or the person next to me or around me was next!

    Pros

    For a retail job this isn't that bad. Great gig for a couple years to save money. Make sure you get out and leave so you can have a life.

    Cons

    Difficult work life balance. No growth. This gig makes you hate people!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a sinking ship.
