    Pros

    My colleagues are like my family. Very supposrtive environment.
    Location is wonderful.
    Benefits are great: free yoga and Pilates classes in the company.

    Cons

    Management can be frustrating at times. And if you have problems with your manager there is no one to talk to that will listen or do anything about it.
    Communication is lacking and there is favoritism.
    No upward mobility.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managent 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.

    The benefits are good. Work balance is not so good at this time, in the past it was. Training not so good.

    Cons

    The management leadership is not strong or knowledgeable in many departments. company VALUES HAVE CHANGED .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the true company values and where it has brought the company . Question department manager more on HR issues. Remember that old company knowledge is very important.

    Pros

    Company 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.

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

    Invest 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.

    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation for management

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 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.
