I worked at Moët Hennessy USA

Pros

nice products, famous brands very well known around the world.
Office is also pretty comfortable with a fairly large pantry.

Cons

No reward for the hard work. Too many last minute requests which completely screw the life balance.
Selfish and careless Management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employees are valuable people, treat them as such, not as disposable slaves.
Expand your vision to the mid-term at least

    I have been working at Moët Hennessy USA

    Pros

    Good portfolio of premium brands

    Cons

    Politics is paralyzing. Can't accomolish great things due to politics.
    Paris HQ dictates what should be done in the US without any understanding of the brands on the US market.
    if you are smart, you will just put LVMH on your resume and leave after 2 years like everybody else.
    Turnover is sky high in this company. No conistency and strategy is applied whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protect and support your management team from crazyness in Paris and disctates to Parismwhat should be done in the US instead of saying "yes" toeverything Paris asks you to do.

    I worked at Moët Hennessy USA

    Pros

    Top-notch portfolio of some of the most distinguished luxury brands in the world.

    Cons

    Given its French heritage, the company is extremely hierarchical and bureaucratic. Everything is dictated by Paris and everyone must march to those drums (think Ancien Regime or the days before the French Revolution). Also, it’s the alcohol industry which is dominated by veteran white males who have done business the same way since the days of Prohibition. So forget about doing anything innovative, new, or different. There is absolutely no training, however since they only recruit from within the alcohol industry there’s no need for it or the new ideas that may come occur with a new perspective. It’s a “sink or swim” mentality both in doing the job and dealing with the politics. Most of it isn’t “rocket science” so don’t expect to be surrounded by a lot of smart people. IT is a joke and even if they did get some top notch technology platforms no one would know what to do with it let alone how to use it. The younger crowd will enjoy the free booze and parties but those who are serious about their career end up leaving within 2-3 years if they can stand it. The politics is thick so watch your back.
