    I have been working at Lagardère full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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).

    I worked at Lagardère

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    It's a job. Don't expect anything and you won't be disappointed.

    I worked at Lagardère

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Get better people in your finance and payroll departments.

    No opinion of CEO
