    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.

    I worked at LVMH full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at LVMH you could always count on the perks, discounts and sample sales. This is the one and only reason you would want to work there. Brand recognition.

    Cons

    Management is something to be admired, if you like to be pinned one against another, than this is the place for you. There is definitely no "team spirit" at LVMH. It is too bad the luxury and prestige is not synonymous with class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revolving door, people turnaround in something I have never seen before. Reason being management and the HR department really do not care about their employees.
