I have been working at Tiffany & Co.

Pros

A challenging environment that is fast paced. Excellent employee benefits and time off.
It's nice to work in a luxury environment, and have tools to learn about diamonds.

Cons

It seems that promotion can be a slow path for those that do not actively seek advancement.
There is a slowness to being able to get things accomplished.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To verbally recognize and offer suggestion for advancement to high performing employees. There are some really amazing people that may not feel appreciated at times.

    Environmental awareness
    Vacation policy
    Hours for retail reasonable
    Proud heritage

    Interesting clientele

    Cons

    Sales projections have been a bit erratic during the economic downturn, placing a lot of pressure on retail sales and management to perform in tough times. Holiday hours are long. Career advancement is difficult. Higher level management jobs rarely open up. Too much emphasis is placed on the performance appraisal given by your immediate manager. If there is a personality conflict or favoritism, there are no checks and balances to ensure that the feedback is accurate and not rooted in personal dislike or favoritism of the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At the retail level it can at times feel as though one department does not speak to another. Several initiatives with increasing quantities of reports, metrics, etc are forcing middle management to spend too much time at the desk and computer, and away from our customers and staff. I would also encourage really listening to the retail employees for design ideas and roadblocks to providing a superior customer experience. The retail employees truly care to deliver "the best" but can get discouraged by corporate actions.
