    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.

    Good for you CV early in your career. Promotions are not based in people results, mostly political relations.

    I worked at LVMH full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work in premium brands, and learn how does luxury business works. You will learn as much as you are willing to, your boss makes all the difference is this company. My experience on the work environment was very positive, I did a lot of friends

    Cons

    No career plans. They weirdly promote their own people.
    Business wide, is very hierarchical and political, decisions of all fields are taken by top management, so don't expect to get experience on that, even if you thing your position should require it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build your future executives, in stead of mostly hiring from competitor companies. They do, and in the mean time LVMH people leaves, because there is no career plans for them. Thanks

    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 (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of hands-on-experience available for low paying jobs

    Cons

    Lack of global direction and too many unskilled and uneducated senior staff.
    HR recruitment departments show many instances of employment law and basic working practice crimes.
    Threats are made face-to-face and emails, phones and any form of surveillance available is used to capture incriminating information for future usage against employees, suppliers and customers.
    Overtime is expected with no pay to demonstrate commitment to LVMH brand. Lunch and break/ holidays are all subject to HR satisfaction.

    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.
