    Pros

    Tiffany and co. offers great employee discounts and benefits. The management is flexible in terms of what to offer the employees. Big company looks good on resume.

    Cons

    There is no job security in this field. It's retail.

    Pros

    Discount and a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    EXTREMLY Siloed company. Absolutely no cooperation or organization between the groups. Mangement level and above (even those who rose through ranks) have no concept of basic operations. I've never been spoken to so condesatingly before in my life. No growth opportunities, if you start in one division, you CANNOT transfer to another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not let talent leave. Let go of non team players and those that create TOXIC environments.

    Pros

    Great benefits, including discount, 401k plan, medical/dental coverage, etc. Pays surprisingly well for retail.

    Cons

    Upper management not always fully transparent, but might be hard for info to be passed down from corporate into retail branches easily. Positive outlook for the company-especially as of late (Fall 2014) with new management coming in and brand new product launches underway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep introducing exciting new prospects! It helps to keep everyone excited and motivated.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good discount. Schedule is ok.
    The starting salary is good not the yearly increase if you get one.

    Cons

    Operations under staff and do tons of work loads. More responsibilities and less workers.
    Sales team always like to blame ops and Merchandise team for failure of their sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operations has an important role, please acknowledge the duties and work they do.

    Pros

    Unbelievable discount on current items and discontinued items on the employee store.

    Cons

    Lack of teamwork, communication and professionalism. Inadequate training. Lots of gossip and mocking of co-workers. No one willingly helps you or wants you to succeed. Customers expect everything to be free.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervise seasonal workers more because they are treated poorly and it's your job to train them; not a computer or dissatisfied co-workers.

    I worked at Tiffany & Co. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -History of the company
    -Beautiful products
    -Nice customers

    Cons

    -Low pay; benefits suck (yes, they offer benefits but you need to contribute a significant amount each week. Lame!).

    - Point system for people who have family emergencies and can't make it to work. WOW. And I though the company cared about it's people???

    -My store had some questionable managers. I always felt silently critiqued by one in particular. She expected every employee to be dressed to the nines with a face full of makeup, hair straightened to oblivion. Any deviation from such from the ladies, and you got THE LOOK. Obnoxious. I came everyday with clothes clean and pressed and adhered to dress code. That's enough for me. I'd walk by her and FEEL her eyes on me. Whatever. I don't get paid enough to wear a different Dior and Versace suit everyday with Louboutin heels.

    -Cliques within my store. No sense of shared mission and teamwork as was promised in training. Lots of crap talking and gossip amongst employees and even some management. I though I left high school behind a decade ago???!!!

    -Crazy work load in Ops. Yet salespeople and management get to gossip and talk amongst themselves during downtime. Huh?

    -The employee discount is fine but it makes you realize what a mark up there is with items in the store. I'll never buy full price from Tiffany's, that's for sure (not that I ever did).

    -Hours are nuts. Working a full day (8hrs) means being there 9 hours to account for an hour lunch break. Do I ever get to go home????

    -Training was very disorganized and scattered. They need to tighten that ship up so people feel prepared for their first day on the job.

    -The IT at Tiffany & Co. is like circa 1990. Very outdated UI and POS system. Laughable for a billion dollar company.

    Pros

    good benefits until last year.

    Cons

    micromanaging blue hell.
    Rude management that treat you like you born yesterday.
    you get sick time off but if you take more than 10 days they can terminate your employment.
    they will promise wonderful positions and great potential with your commission don't believe a thing only the people that can play politics will maked it anywhere, If you are a great employee but don't play politics you worth nothing,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Entrepreneurial ideas dis-encouraged.
    Stop with the micromanaging and hire people that can do their job without having to be reminded of their duty's constantly by managers that clearly have a lot of time in their hands and could be supporting us.
