    I have been working at Tourneau full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tourneau has so many passionate employees in the stores and at corporate. We've had many changes in the last year with executives and upper management which I believe to be great for everyone! I look forward to continued growth and success as change is implemented at store level.

    Cons

    Getting the employees that have worked here for decades to embrace the changes has been challenging. It is happening but not overnight.

    I have been working at Tourneau full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working in the luxury is nice. I loved working with different high end brands like Patek and Rolex. Very knowledgeable Sales Professionals who are passionate and I have become friends with is the good part.

    Cons

    It seems like no room for growth unless you are a straight, white, middle aged man. I see very little diversity in Management and Senior Management. It is very much an old boys club. Do not work here unless you fit the above description. The company seems to dislike minorities and women.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes to reality by listening to employees vs. living in a bubble. I dont live in the past but the old Management was better. Even the watch companies say this.

    I have been working at Tourneau full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The employees of Tourneau are really nice and have great attitudes about their work. I think the company should consider training the managers on proper procedures and how to bill up the morale of the store employees.

    Cons

    Would like to see more lower level employees get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Tourneau is headed in the right direction. I think Tourneau has become a luxury retailer. Keep hiring high level executives that know their craft and the employees will always benefit from it.

    I have been working at Tourneau full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Tourneau allows you to work hands on with the finest luxury watches in the world. The constant cycle of new products every year keeps things fresh and exciting. If you are motivated and look to find new avenues to drive business you will be a success in this company. Tourneau has gone through many changes and now more than ever gives you the opportunity and freedom to be creative.

    Cons

    Retail environment is not for everyone long hours and working weekends is to be expected. Since the company is sales driven the potential of turn over is always present in terms of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think everyone would like to hear more from the executives that what they do is appreciated. Also setting up defined growth opportunities and career paths would be helpful. Lastly as long as you are asking combining year end reviews with a compensatory salary increase would be fantastic.

    I have been working at Tourneau full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I am very happy working at Tourneau. I feel overall direction and changes that are taking place are well needed and will take Tourneau to new heights. The CEO Ira Melnitsky has held a town hall meeting to keep everyone in the loop on the direction of the company which has had an overall positive impact throughout the company. He is a leader who knows what he wants, has amazing ideas, and is willing to listen to employee ideas at all levels. I am proud to be an employee of Tourneau.

    Cons

    It can be a challenge to get those who are stuck in their ways to see the bigger picture and new vision, but it is happening at a pace that is right for this business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving in the current direction.

    Pros

    New Senior Management (CEO, Senior Vice President of HR) in place who are making great changes on a Company wide basis.

    Cons

    Instead of complaining about minor issues, people need to focus on their job and strive to provide excellent customer service to internal and external clients.

    I have been working at Tourneau full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I started on the sales floor with Tourneau and have been given opportunities to steadily move forward in my career in the industry. Tourneau's upper management has excellent vision for the future and they are heavily invested in future planning for the staff at every level. This means that they spend a great deal of time and energy on training and growth development. With a large network of locations throughout the country, there are always new opportunities.

    Cons

    Tourneau is a sales/retail environment and this is historically difficult if you are not a top seller, or are new to the industry. However, if you are a fast learner you will thrive.

    Pros

    You learn about timepieces and to appreciate them. Its good if you just start working and you want to get experience.

    Cons

    They are like the old companies where if you are brown nose you become manager and even if you suck as a manager...you stay! So for those people that we don't want to be brown nose...forget a promotion. They are corporate company where you are only one more employee, they don't have training programs, in other words they only have control of the money but not on the rest of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people the way you would like to be treat, you are not the owner, just another employee. Don't think you're God and deserve respect...earn it!
