    Pros

    Only one advantage of staff discount on fancy jewellery and watch. Cannot find any others.

    Cons

    Too many things to be listed.
    1) "Not organized". Remember clearly Richemont has company rules & regulations for all brands, but these are not respected by brands with insistng on having each brand own way; nasty, pushy, some even said untruth according to their position.
    2) "NO mutual respect" between richemont and brands, No respect for employees.
    3) Enhance transparency in performance process. Not given clear feedback from it
    4) Horrible internal politics. Not professional approach by senior managements.

    Advice to Management

    Senior managements should have more respect for employees, and need to realize quickly employees are great asset for business growth, not only fancy products.

    Pros

    I only see as an advantage the bargain prices that you can get on jewelries and fancy watches. I can not find any others.

    Cons

    Things are obsolete in Richemont.
    People are not motivated and are trying to move away whenever they can (huge turnover)
    there is a lack of consideration for the employees...

    Advice to Management

    Educate yourself and gain some valuable management skills to put in practice at Richemont. Consider your employees as the biggest assets.
    Please stop slacking

    Pros

    Good price on watches, on jewelleries and luxury goods.
    Other than that I do not see any good reason to work for Richemont.

    Cons

    Poor working condition: The management is of poor quality. Employees are not properly considered. On top of that the salaries and bonuses are lower than what you can find on the market.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and consider your employees better. Try to be less snobish, lofty and arrogant. Put your feet on the ground

    Horrible place to work. You can make good sugestions, but if you are not one of the "favorite" ones you will be brushed aside.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage, Learn customer service, just learn to be a human.

    I do not recommend Richemont as an employer at all. It is a waste of time as you cannot make things move further.

    Pros

    bargain on watches and jewelry, other than that I do not see.
    Super sales are to me the only good thing about Richemont, in order to prfit from this, you have to like buying luxury watches in that case.

    Cons

    poor management, low budget, rogue IT, and lofty people.
    Lack of diversity.People are not motivated to stay there at all and just feel like going somewhere else when the opportuinity arise.
    People's career are in standby there.
    There is a big turnover
    People are not trained and therefore loose their skills after a while.

    Advice to Management

    give more respect to your employees. Give them some incentives to retrieve their motivation.

    Pros

    Appart from bargain on jewelry and watches, I cannot see any.

    Cons

    Richemont is a very chaotic company, badly organized and with a bad atmosphere in most department on top of that. Its matrical organisation does not help.

    Advice to Management

    Give more respect to your employees. Thus you will reduce the turnover, big time.
    Be less lofty, snobish and arrogant.
