    I have been working at Lagardère full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with who generally enjoy their work and take interest in their job. The managers are usually easy going and take interest in their employees.

    Cons

    Career planning is not provided and you must fend for yourself and ask for career plan of some sort. Succession planning is unheard of and when someone leaves the postion can be unfilled for months despite internal talent eager to take on the challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees more appropriately for the level of work that is expected of them and provide them with a reason to stay and grow with the company by creating career plan for ambitious employees.

    I have been working at Lagardère full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    OK salary People are friendly Strong development in Asia Workplace flexibility

    Cons

    Bad internal communication from senior management, key information are not shared with mid management / employees, leading to confusion, waste of time and money Strong political skills are required to be able to last long in this company Workload isnt steady

    Advice to Management

    Move from short to long term vision by actually investing in people and reduce turnover. Get middle managers to know what is going on by improving internal communication (newsletters - regular project updates etc).

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Lagardere is company name recognition, plenty of vacation time, and generous client expense account.

    Cons

    There are many downsides to working for Lagardere, including low pay, lack of direction, lack of feedback or corporate leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Lagardere needs to improve the way it treats its employees and runs its business. Management should project a vision for the company that employees can understand and pursue.

    Pros

    Decent pay compared to others in retail. Was given time off when I needed it (was working and studying part time). Beats serving fries at McDonalds. Training offered but you've got to ask for it.

    Cons

    Dead-end job. It's a job, not a career. Don't expect company social events. Shares are doing badly at the moment and the company has definately tried to cut the budget at the cost of its employees. Bad hours (5am start for morning shifts and 9pm finishes for afternoon shifts)

    Advice to Management

    Get better people in your finance and payroll departments.
