    I worked at LVMH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very nice working environment, beautiful brands you work with, good career opportunities, nice people, amazing staff discounts.

    Cons

    In addition to the responsibility you get over some very interesting projects, you also have to do the typical "intern tasks" (of course) which was not a problem but you have to bear this in mind maybe.

    I worked at LVMH full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fantastic brands with emotionally driven employees that execute strategies almost faultlessly. Having worked for a few other companies I can safely say that the reason for these brands being so successful is the commitment of the Marketing teams, efficiency of spend and excellence in hiring external consultancy to find a winning strategy

    Sample sales for sure

    Ambition. Once you accept the pay is rubbish and do your job the experience actually becomes very valuable. especially when you leave as you realise they think differently (and often better) than their competitors

    Cons

    The pay is low. No point pretending otherwise. My salary after I left was double (and at a similar level to the position I had there). Work can be frenetic and emotionally draining but that is because you care.

    A long term career there is undeniably difficult if you are not French. Most of their brands are french though so isnt too hard to see why. In addition the HR teams are less interested in personal development than the development of the brand or business as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage cross fertilisation of ideas between maisons and brands. Surely there is a lot to learn that isnt because this almost never happens.

    Given the challenges of not being French, either teach your staff the language (and stress it's importance) or operate like most other businesses and make English the language you require in order to succed in a global role (unless it is a Chinese or Spanish speaking territory for which the role is responsible)

    I have been working at LVMH

    Pros

    goodies, overall experience (but might definitely be better in France), brand awareness, luxurious, mafia kind of management

    Cons

    disorganised, management full of liars and irresponsible people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be honest with your employees
