    I have been working at Tiffany & Co. part-time

    Pros

    -Company discount is great.
    -Pay is decent.
    -Iconic brand name which is great for resume.

    Cons

    Overall the name of the company is the only thing it has going for it. Tiffany's is absolutely going downhill. The company overall is not doing well and so the morale is very low. The managers are awful. It really makes you scratch your head and wonder how they got the job in the first place.

    This is definitely no longer a place to stay for over 25 years. I do not recommend this company to anyone as it is a sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Get new leadership. The company desperately needs it.

    Pros

    Tiffany provides a decent wage as well as the benefits of indoor work. The opportunity to learn interesting things about precious gemstones and how they acquired is there. Customers are usually pleasant.

    Cons

    Tiffany is one of those cutthroat businesses that will fire staff to make their numbers. Retail hours are awful. Management gets dumber the higher you go. Abrupt policy changes.

    Advice to Management

    Stop running the business like a labor camp. Stop increasing the sales staff's numbers at a time when fewer people are coming through the door.

    Pros

    The company has a very well-located and maintained corporate office. Everyone seems to be hardworking and collaborative. Expected work hours are quite reasonable for New York City.

    Cons

    Tiffany may be a diamond company, but they can be quite cheap with regards to the pay of their employees. The budget is always "tight," but clearly it's simply not well distributed throughout.

    Advice to Management

    There could be more transparency with regards to opportunities within the company. Management should also engage in discussion with their employees about how they want to grow their career.

    I worked at Tiffany & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Casual office. Decent Benefits. Location is easy to get to.

    Cons

    Terrible experience. The 'manager' level employees are largely made of employees who have been with the company long enough to wait for one of the seats to open. Not because they are good at managing employees or have technical knowledge. Managers will play favorites and make it very known. They abuse the time off policy, abuse expense reports and ensure that their direct reports do not advance. This place is TOXIC. Lastly, company is on a really bad downturn. No one wants to buy overpriced diamonds anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Tell someone in HR to take what people say seriously. How many times do you have to have employees quit for the reasons before actions are taken.
