    I have been working at Tiffany & Co. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong brand which permeates the company culture. Company continues to grow in tough times. Strong senior management team with vision of the brand. Professional environment. Pinnacle of the industry. Company conducts regular employee surveys to better understand where improvements need ot be made, especially in regards to culture and values. Great benefits. Great people. People tend to be very loyal so there is a lot of longevity with the company.

    Cons

    Strong brand leads at times to thinking of there is a "Tiffany" way, sometimes causing resistance to change, but that is slowly changing for the positive. Technology has a low value. Can be slow in terminating truly poor performers. Advancement is available but tough because of the longevity of people.

    Advice to Management

    Make the technology investments today to ensure competitiveness tomorrow.

    I worked at Tiffany & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Great team of co-workers
    Good benefits, 401k match, 3 weeks vacation to start

    Cons

    They are in the process of eliminating employees and bringing in contract programmers to work on specific projects. Employees have no idea what the contract programmers are doing (often generating poor code that needs to be reworked).

    Lip service is paid to full project life cycle...but projects are loaded with expanding scope and often lack user sponsors and/or user buy-in and sign off.

    Next to no training on new technology.

    Advice to Management

    Return to hiring employees and train them as needed instead of tossing them for contract coders.
