    I worked at LVMH

    Pros

    colleges are very pleasant to work with, I learned a lot from them during my internship here. They respect individual's needs and opinions.

    Cons

    I expected more training from retail department to develop my skills and improve my understanding of this business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    a complete training process may help interns get more insights of this business.

    I worked at LVMH

    Pros

    - You get good discounts for products you don't need with dubious quality

    Cons

    - You can expect from the company exactly what you expect from their brands: shallow values, stuck up people and delusion with what is offered. You ended up paying a very high price to work for them.
    - Horrible place to be an intern/beginner as there is very low perspective of progress in career within the company
    - Even if you are hired, expect intellectual decadence
    - General disinterest to teach people things
    - Jurassic way of work, everybody is paid to do more of the same
    - Expect tons of operational work, pressing buttons
    - Enormous gaps in salary between the lowest and highest paid
    - Not a meritocratic company at all
    - Bad work environment with shallow value people
    - General xenophobia against whoever is not French
    - Extremely irresponsible with the environment
    - This company is not a school, you need to learn anywhere else and then transfer to it

    I have been working at LVMH as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Obviously working for LVMH, the name says it all.
    The location, the free lunches, random giveaways, sample sales, Summer Fridays.

    Cons

    Communication lacks.
    If you don't speak French - you will be an outsider 100%.
    Management expects you, somehow, to read their minds on what they want you to do while everyone else gets sent to lavish destination "meetings" in Paris and California for weeks at a time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If people didn't walk around with their noses in the air then the place would evolve much better. It's funny to see these average people, walking around NYC, yet as soon as they hit the LVMH Tower it's like some type of royalty has swept over them.

    The bottom line is, no matter what you're doing, what brand or what you're selling - shouldn't define how you work or act. It's all superficial bull in the end.

    Another disappointing, established, big-name company

    I worked at LVMH

    Pros

    As an employee of a retail company, you can use employee gratis or discounts to purchase products from your brand, as well as LVMH's other brands. You may receive goodie bags throughout the year filled with expensive products or samples. If you work in a retail storefront, you'll get to try consumable products (perfumes, makeup, lotions, liquor, etc.) during product launches.

    If your division is doing well financially, you can enjoy lots of free coffee and the occasional catered lunch.

    Cons

    LVMH is old as dirt, as you can tell by its dated legacy systems and its glacial pace of adapting to change. If you are not a middle-aged woman or French, expect to be a minority wherever you work in this company. Compensation is average, vacation allowance is the lowest I've had at any job, and the healthcare options are limited and slightly overpriced IMO. LVMH certainly looks like a good employment experience on a resume, but the high employee turnover I've witnessed seems to indicate otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate downward, and get your middle managers to do the same. Whatever cultural overtones you are setting up there are not always trickling down to the workplace. Educate your employees on how to interact in an international and multicultural workplace. Provide training to new managers on how to be managers of people, and not just technical specialists.
