    Pros

    Amazing brands get the door open. Freedom to make decisions. Great samples. If you wait long enough lots of opportunities will present them selves if you are willing to move.

    Cons

    Lack of promotability. Limited to no exposure to other parts of LVMH. Ultimately if you want to rise up you must be mobile.

    Exciting Luxury Adult Beverage Company- great image and fast paced work environment

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Region Sales in New York, NY

    I have been working at Moët Hennessy USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Prestigious brands and world class marketing make this a great company you would be proud to represent. LVMH is the world leader in luxury brands.

    Cons

    Having worked for other large adult beverage companies, the challenges are different here being a French run company. the marketing structure of separate "maisons" for each brand does make you often feel like you are reporting to several smaller companies within the whole, often with conflicting priorities that make the day to day work more difficult. The politics are often discouraging as well for career advancement as being French is an unspoken edge, that sees many good local talent become frustrated and increases turnover of good people, unfortunately. Company does run "lean" from a head count perspective, so the lazy need not apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More hiring of good industry talent , versus priority in recruitment of Ivy League MBA's and cross functional promotion from other parts of LVMH. Promoting from within being a priority to increase retention of good talent.

    If you're willing to do the work of two maybe three people at the cost of one...this is the place for you.

    Pros

    Great Celebrations, Events, Product samples.

    Cons

    Very lean company, work is piled on you. Lack of training, lack of communication between the different departments. Very segmented company. Vendors have been unhappy with late payments due to lack of headcount to process invoices adequately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people! Promote from within.

    Good until certain management was hired.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Moët Hennessy USA

    Pros

    Met good people and learnt allot from them. All got to learn a new system SAP which I never worked on before.

    Cons

    Arrogant management, egos, no growth potential, human resources department not very positive. Brands are segregated so it's almost like several companies within one so it's confusing place to work at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loose the egos and trusts the employees under you who do all the real work.

    Super Luxury Company

    • Senior Management

    Former Employee - Trade Development Manager
    Former Employee - Trade Development Manager

    I worked at Moët Hennessy USA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very high-end, well received luxury brands. Supported by LVMH parent company. Lots of opportunities for growth, Marketing and Sales side make it an unusual Supplier job. The company as a whole was very good at sharing sales information with the teams and distributors to further their goals.

    Cons

    Each brand is in it's own "Maison" so marketing and sales sometimes feel as if you are working for many different people and small companies within one large unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training and better entrance programs for new hires. There was no new hire program until 2012. It wasn't very effective.
    The company has a lot of people working there that have been there for many years and very set in their ways. The upper management should check in on lower level sales and marketing to make sure they are happy without the intimidation of the President knowing everything that everyone does. HR was not very professional.

    Current Employee - Summer Intern in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Summer Intern in New York, NY

    I have been working at Moët Hennessy USA as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The internship program is very structured with interns joining from top schools in the country. It helped me to learn how to work in a high profile environment like that of Moet's. Interacting with different teams builds your communication and creates an effective route for future job search. After work parties were amazing and you get to taste all the premium spirits from Moet.

    Cons

    The office space is too small and its slightly overcrowded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internship could have been extended beyond summer
