    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 who have no idea how impossible it is to practically implement the policies they are handing down and still make sales plan. If their policies were implemented as demanded, you will have no time to actually sell to the people who come in to actually spend money (mostly Chinese clientele). Which means you will not make any money. Yearly raises are ridiculously minuscule and definitely do not keep up with inflation (you're lucky if you get a 1% raise). Company policies for sales professionals and commission structure encourage unfriendly competition and discourage cooperation creating a truly toxic environment to work in. If you're interested in a non-sales related position, by all means, go ahead. But as already mentioned, stay away from sales-related positions (unless of course you enjoy being constantly stressed out and having your employment constantly threatened).

    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.

    Pros

    For the most part, the products are beautiful. Clients come in during happy occasions to make purchases which accounts for pleasant interactions.

    Cons

    Upper management is completely unethical and inhuman. Sales goals are unattainable and management just blames you if they are not met. The new dress code makes you look like you work at Macy's. If you're young, white or Asian you have a chance, if you are not, keep it moving. If you know a good employment lawyer, this is fertile ground.

    Advice to Management

    Advise to Human Recourses = get rid of management before you have a major class action.
    Management = Treat your employees like valuable members of the company.

    Pros

    The salary was decent for a seasonal position. I enjoyed the busy work environment because the day did flow by pretty quickly on most days. It was really nice dressing up every day and working in a luxury environment. Most employees were very helpful and sociable throughout my experience with Tiffany.

    Cons

    Not much time for appropriate and much-needed breaks. Training prior to being placed on the floor was under par. Lower management personnel displayed blatant favoritism, cattiness and very unprofessional behavior towards other Sales Associates during my experience. At times we were micro-managed on the sales floor, which was frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and treat them as equals and with appropriate professionalism.

    Pros

    Great brand, great company history, looks good on a resume

    Cons

    Long time employee but left after new managements extremely aggressive and unrealistic expectations made life here unbearable. If you don't have an MBA and aren't willing to work 14 hour days, forget it.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out who you are as a company/brand. Look deep into your systems...this is the main cause of most roadblocks, not your people

    Pros

    Offices are comfortable. There is a great food service provider, prices are reasonable and the menu is diverse and creative. Decent employee discount.

    Cons

    Someof the senior managment lack insight as to a foward thinking company should operate.Many of the systems are out of date if not obsolete.There seems to be a conflict in management style with some of the new senior recruits. we'll see how this shakes out.

    Advice to Management

    Take the surveys seriously. Alot of time and effort is put into them. Simple fixes can be implemented rather quickly; however, there seems to be an effort to do nothing.
