    I have been working at Moët Hennessy USA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Incredible brands, luxury portfolio. Company is lean - ability for employees to learn & experience many different departments. Diverse global staff. Luxury marketing at its best.

    Cons

    Company is very disorganized, everything is last minute. Lack of diversity (African American / Hispanic / Females) in leadership roles. Little respect for personal time or work life balance. Annual bonus program not clear until almost the end of program. Very political environment to work.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down to speed up. Have respect for work life balance (holidays, weekends).

    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.

    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 Management

    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.


  9. 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 Management

    Hire more people! Promote from within.


  10. Good until certain management was hired.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Represent outstanding products from a variety of segments

    Cons

    very lean organization, expected to work long hours (difficult to have family life) little opportunity for career advancement extremely political - often French employees are randomly given high level positions because they know someone key, higher up

    Advice to Management

    focus on career advancement, promote based on skill set
