I have been working at Tiffany & Co. full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Historical aspect, brand recognition, worldwide expansion created dynamic culture that accepts change

Cons

Some VP level members are unfit for the position and drive the business results down. In Manufacturing employees are not trusted, often falsely accused of being a direct cause of poor results where nothing is done to improve morale, improve the work flow and systems from practical perspective. A lot of abstract theory is chewed at each meeting, people leave with no concrete action plans. VP is extremely poor communicator, uses divide and conquer method to control people, treats people like numbers, very low morale at manufacturing locations.

Advice to Management

Look beyond the employee survey, don't dismiss direct employee feedback, look into operational side with a fine toothed comb. There is a lot of money foolishly wasted both in manufacturing and product development side.

    Hire mangers within the company not from lens crafter!

    Pros

    Good benefits, work life balance is pretty good

    Cons

    IT is very much afraid of change and forward thinking. If you are not part of the 'click' you can forget about moving forward. Hard work is rarely appreciated, not even a simple Thank You is given. Outside of IT and the stores, different departments seem to be better at valuing their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to say Thank You, don't be negative, it does not help moral.
