    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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus on team spirit a bit more.

    Former Intern - Assistant Trade Marketing in Paris (France)

    I worked at LVMH as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Prestige de l'entreprise, référence dans le monde du luxe, formateur en ce qui concerne l'organisation et la gestion de grandes quantités de travail.

    Cons

    Pour résumer: cela ressemble dans les faits à la caricature, à ce qu'on peut entendre à propos du monde du luxe.

    Management par la pression: énormément de travail et de petits salaires à la clé. Dixit certains managers de la marque "plus la marque est prestigieuse, plus la rémunération est basse".
    Pas de reconnaissance.
    Culture d'entreprise: beaucoup de politesse et de sourires en face et beaucoup de commentaires dans le dos, dès la minute suivante.
    On nous fait comprendre qu'on a bien de la chance d'être là car des centaines font la queue pour obtenir le poste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuez comme ça, ça à l'air de bien fonctionner pour vous: pendant que les employés se tirent dans les pates, tout n'est pas perdu pour tout le monde.
    Mais vous attirez les plus avides et les plus mesquins, pas forcément les plus dynamiques. Pas sûr que ça offre les plus belles perspectives à long terme.

    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
