    Great environment, slow development

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsOverall, the NY flagship store is a great work environment with a communal feel.

    ConsCareer growth and movement are very slow. Most of the staff have been with the company for many years due to the comfort of the work environment, but you will notice that they have not achieved must position progression.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome more competitive with your approach to management development. While there are some helpful elements in place like, courses/ training on leadership and management style and a management training program, there should be more emphasis on developing individuals on a more personal basis. Perhaps through a Director/Manager mentorship program that expands beyond individual stores.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Mixed Bag

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat heritage brand with a time-honored legacy. Innovative, beautiful, high quality creative work that you can feel proud of. Good work/life balance. Amazing discount.

    ConsRegularly promote from outside rather than valuing the top-notch employees they have. Very little employee development or training. Transparency can be an issue. Temperamental upper management. Poor raises, salaries are not industry competitive.

    Great company with beautiful legacy

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsHighly ethical business practices, focus on being "the best there is", incredible product - perfection in design, craftsmanship and materials, unmatched anywhere. You can be proud to be a part of something beautiful, while doing things the right way.

    ConsPoor communication from senior management on significant and impactful changes to the company. Unsure of recent changes in leadership. Can be very slow moving.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A historic company with good benefits but can be very stressful at times.

    CNC Machinist (Former Employee)
    Cumberland, RI

    ProsMany talented employees with lots of knowledge to share, good benefits package, always busy with lots of over time opportunities.

    ConsPressure-cooker environment with lots of stress that seems to trickle-down from upper-management all the way down to floor workers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagent could show more respect to employees and understand that we should be treated like individuals and not just a body at a station performing an operation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A large corporation with name recognition.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEmployee discount, benefits, worldwide stores and offices.

    ConsA very political environment where management is slow in recognizing invaluable employee, often crippling productive environment.

    Sales

    Sales Professional (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsCompany is perfect for learning about Jewelry, and getting started in the luxury world. Once you have worked for the company, you really can go to any other luxury brand. Things really do change based on the location you work in, and the quality of the Director in place.

    ConsCompany has changed drastically over the last few years. New, added pressure is forced on the sales staff, and they have pushed out most of the tenured employees. Most people come and stay for around a year, but eventually move on, as they find a better environment elsewhere. Jobs on the sales floor with Tiffany have become entry-level, more geared towards people just coming out of college.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in people that you hire. If someone has a rough couple of months, view the person's reputation as in sales, instead of threatening termination. Make room for people who are English speaking, not just Mandarin.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company going through major changes

    Director (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood benefits and compensation for management

    ConsThe Tiffany & Company that valued it's employees and heritage is a thing of the past.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe Euro Trash that you are bringing in to run the company will not fix your problems. Profitability will only be enhanced by new product offerings - rather than eliminating staff to achieve expense targets. The entire employee population is too nervous to focus on their jobs because they fear elimination.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
