    3 disappointing years

    Supply-Chain Manager (Former Employee)
    Paris (France)

    ProsGrowing company, international, famous brand, nice products, nice locations, participation to benefits quite attractive, lots of skilled employees

    Conslow salaries compared to other people with similar experience, managers are not skilled for managing people, very difficult to get promoted (senior managers are usually hired from other companies) and long work hours with limited recognition. Culture very polished, but stabbing in the back, with a lot of women and divas. Limited talent retention due to the company attractiveness, HR don't really care about the high turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus a bit more on turnover and talent turnover, since training new people too often can really harm the company.
    Invest more in system for Back-office (not stores only) and invest more in hotline.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good professional experience but not really a good human experience"

    Intern In Sales (Former Employee)
    Geneva (Switzerland)

    ProsIt's quite a Good experience for your CV. It depends where you want to orient yourself after but employers are quite receptive to this brand

    ConsThe HR are lame. They don't make people evolve in intern, they prefer to take people from outside. And are quite sensitive to the diplomas you have got.
    The HR aren't really close to the employers neither

    Advice to Senior ManagementHR should be more "experience" orientated than "diploma" orientated.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
