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

    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 Management

    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

    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.

    Driven personalities can have great career possibilities regardless their age or experience. You learn from the best, impeccable executions required to represent the luxury values of their portfolio brands. Excellent benefits.

    Pros

    Fantastic brands with emotionally driven employees that execute strategies almost faultlessly. Having worked for a few other companies I can safely say that the reason for these brands being so successful is the commitment of the Marketing teams, efficiency of spend and excellence in hiring external consultancy to find a winning strategy

    Sample sales for sure

    Ambition. Once you accept the pay is rubbish and do your job the experience actually becomes very valuable. especially when you leave as you realise they think differently (and often better) than their competitors

    Cons

    The pay is low. No point pretending otherwise. My salary after I left was double (and at a similar level to the position I had there). Work can be frenetic and emotionally draining but that is because you care.

    A long term career there is undeniably difficult if you are not French. Most of their brands are french though so isnt too hard to see why. In addition the HR teams are less interested in personal development than the development of the brand or business as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage cross fertilisation of ideas between maisons and brands. Surely there is a lot to learn that isnt because this almost never happens.

    Given the challenges of not being French, either teach your staff the language (and stress it's importance) or operate like most other businesses and make English the language you require in order to succed in a global role (unless it is a Chinese or Spanish speaking territory for which the role is responsible)

    Pros

    Very nice working environment, beautiful brands you work with, good career opportunities, nice people, amazing staff discounts.

    Cons

    In addition to the responsibility you get over some very interesting projects, you also have to do the typical "intern tasks" (of course) which was not a problem but you have to bear this in mind maybe.

    Pros

    Small team, much learning, very hands-on

    Cons

    No career opportunities, conservative culture

    Advice to Management

    Create a stronger LVMH-wide network. There is no such thing as an internal (and international) database of all LVMH employees, which makes career movs even more difficult within the group.
