    Pros

    Strong structure for research and development. Brands keep integrity of their own DNA without the feeling of a big company.

    Cons

    Siloed brands make for limited interaction between different divisions. Physical separation of brands in different buildings makes it hard to connect with other employees.

  2. Shockingly dull space to work in.

    Pros

    The experience is bar none. Not toe room that the standards learned here will make you a hero at a smaller company.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement esp since they take months for a new hire.

    Advice to Management

    Worked in the Fragrance dept through and agency. The space was compartmental and tight. Boxes and miscellaneous garbage everywhere. The smallest tightest most windowless place in life.
    However the stint there taught me so much about marketing and the LVMH standard, which is bar none.
    The girls there are super young and dumpy. Far from what you'd expect at a company like this. Most of the staff had zero fashion sense with the exception of the team I worked with.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and grow. Company (depending on the department) is still in growth stage making it better for you to cross train with middle management and other departments. Advance is very slow; they are very selective, but very possible if you work hard at getting noticed for your contributions to the team.

    Cons

    Most senior managers have egos. They have been with the company for quite some time...perhaps its why they are senior management not necessarily due to talent. Acquired skill and high turn around naturally lead most senior managers to inherit their positions. Now they feel prestigious for having a managerial role. If they would have to reapply for the same position they currently hold, it wouldn't be surprising if most those managers would not be hired to do their current job.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on team spirit a bit more.

    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 Management

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

    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

    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 Management

    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.
