    I worked at Montblanc full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is fare with opportunity to grow in some markets. Employees are treated fairly with dignity and mutual respect.

    Cons

    HQ is out of sync with markets which effects growth potential, reactive management as opposed to preparatory but not a big deal day-to-day

    I worked at Montblanc

    Pros

    Absolute the best writing instruments in the world, bar none! Exquisite pieces, handmade watches and jewelery, I felt almost honored to be able to be part of the organization.

    Cons

    Lack of proffessional growth opportunities, salary is mediocre, sense of urgency to resolve issues within the company remains to be seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the groound troops(employees at the boutique level) They often have some pretty good ideas and suggestions in order to run a more efficient business.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Montblanc full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has decent benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor training, no support, old systems, little inventory, damaged merchandise and the CEO is crazy!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. The same people have been in the same seats with the same stale ideas for years.
