    I worked at Tiffany & Co. full-time

    Pros

    - beautiful jewelry
    - fun co-workers
    - decent benefits

    Cons

    - the individual commission system brings out the absolute worst in the sales team: agression, manipulation, greed...
    - you are a number, judged based on how much you sell. That's all that counts. Who cares about quality customer service, as long as you are selling.

    Advice to Management

    Switch to a group commission

    I worked at Tiffany & Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation, employee discount

    Cons

    Management, outdated systems and processes, old-school management style, disorganized, non-collaborative dept work style, poorly designed operational infrastructure

    Advice to Management

    Create a learning and development culture. Don't underestimate the potential of your young and tech savvy staff. Many are natural leaders and can do so much more. Delegating simple coordination tasks to managers really gives your competition the upper hand. To my knowledge, all that left TCO were immediately promoted, which means that you were holding back their talent and their capabilities.

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

    Pros

    Good base rates of pay for employees. Great brand name for the resume. They paid for half of my tuition.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Too much power outside of the organization and not enough inside. To many meetings and reports, and not enough action.

    Pros

    They try to help with work life balance. For example there is a free yoga twice a week (to be discontinued in July 2017). Most depts are accommodating about doctors appointments etc. But expect to make up the hours and work.

    Cons

    Best word to describe corporate culture is fake. People are nice and polite. That's it. They are not generally intelligent about the approach to work and much time is wasted on top toeing around management. The focus is not on sales generating work. Instead you are expected to spend time sugar coating and finding new ways of calling bad performance (individuals and company sales) "soft" or "presenting a lot of opportunity for improvement." However, things take decades to change because of the general resistance to change. There was a CEO who advocated change and under him, many radical new concepts were implemented, such as the Lady Gaga campaign. But he was ousted the day the Superbowl ad came out. So go in figure.

    Advice to Management

    Tiffany will merely continue to survive by resting on its historical laurels. But nothing will truly change for the better unless you replace the heads in Merchandising. They are stagnant and rule the division with a tyrannical feel, albeit cloaked in the most polite of words. Wolf in sheep's clothing that are only out to push personal agendas. Rethink everything. Or you will continue to see the unprecedented turnover.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, comfortable nice work environment, nice people to work with, great iconic brand to work for, nice discount

    Cons

    Very small raises year over year- less than cost of living even with high PMP review results, very hard to move up- really feel like you can only move laterally,

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employee's growth & investing in strong people, Tiffany's is a revolving door because they refuse to stay competitive and instead waste everyone's efforts training people just to lose them a year or two later

    Pros

    Great place to work. Very supportive staff. Lots of training prior to the rush during the holiday season. Many staff has been there 20+ years and are still excited about the job and the products.

    Cons

    High stress during rush days during holiday season – but that's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Great managers that are very supportive and look out for employees best interests.
