    Pros

    Fantastic company!!
    Salary and benefits are great, and the company prides itself on work-life balance.

    Cons

    My boutique at the Orlando Millenia is closing in a few months and I will sadly no longer be with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good individuals that respect and get along with one another and your boutique will thrive. Don't underestimate having happy employees; misery is not good for business.

    I worked at Cartier full-time

    Pros

    I met a few great people.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Management is hired based in how long they've been with the company or how well higher ups may like them. The managers have no people skills, no task management experience, and no leadership skills. They don't know how to grow employees nor do they want their employees to grow and learn. They definitely do not give raises unless you're in a store location. The 'management' has no clue about the actual jewelry business as a whole i.e. stones, jewelry repair, basic jewelry 101. Although HR is aware of all the problems with management nothing gets taken care of. When all of HR starts to quit, there clearly is a big problem!

    Advice to Management

    Hire management with actual management expertise in luxury jewelry and they have people arms leadership skills. Don't hire managers who just want a high salary.

    Pros

    Cash rich company that makes day to day comfortable. Coworkers are competent and friendly. Friendly management. Great benefits package and lots of PTO.

    Cons

    Don’t like to give bonuses or raises. Some managers are harder to deal with than others. The company isn’t much concerned with the customer which is difficult when working with clients

    Advice to Management

    Give a commission structure that corresponds to how hard I work, not how hard you perceive me working

    Experience from working in the corporate side of Cartier in New York City:
    Interesting company history, feels great to contribute to the legacy.
    Nice corporate benefits such as employee sales and discounts, employee health and financial benefits are great.
    Opportunity to work on projects that have an impact throughout the corporation.
    Lots of employee trainings available.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity to grow within the organization.
    Lack of responsibility given to junior staff.
    Daily tasks can feel monotonous and not innovative.
    Senior management comfortable in their roles and not especially helpful in enriching junior staff experience or growth.

    Invest in your junior staff and continue strengthening a positive company culture across all departments.

    Pros

    The pros out of this interview process is the ability to learn from poor management and how to improve poor Human Resources in a multi million dollar company.

    Cons

    The HR department in New York has much to learn in regards to conducting interviews and follow up. Interviews are conducted at a leisurely time of approximate 7 months.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe getting of their “high horse” by giving some respect to employees and conducting a more serious business acumen. Plenty of companies are willing to conduct interviews within a timely manner and etiquette.

    I worked at Cartier full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary and Benefits were basically the only things that kept me around. But I have to say, the cons outweigh the pros. Sorry not sorry.

    Cons

    It’s discouraging and draining when you work alongside people who constantly have a negative mindset. Also, Having a manager who degrades you daily and makes you stressed out doesn’t help. I will never come back to this company, not worth my time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employers with dignity and respect.
