    I have been working at Richemont full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Fort Worth, TX

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits in regards to 401K, medical, dental, etc. Lunch or breakfast is often provided if weekend hours are mandatory. Business improvement committee working to improve culture, but a tough road ahead. Facility open long hours, so some have the chance to choose their schedule.

    Cons

    Intentions are good but execution lacks considerably. One person on management team has an extremely negative effect on the whole facility. Until that changes, I don't see much hope. Holiday time off is by lottery or rotated depending on department. Don't expect time off near holidays, although you will find much of the management team to be off. Employees overall are not satisfied and often feel like they are treated like children. Good people with positive outlook and influence are leaving. Pay raises are very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture is everything. Happy employees work hard and go the extra mile, in the end that amounts to productivity and quality

    Pros

    Great heritage and traditions surround this company's work and management. A pleasure to experience

    Cons

    Poor prioritization and organisation management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive the company as the multinational that it is. Old-school management style, miicro management etc does not bring any favours to the employees.

    I have been working at Richemont

    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 ManagementAdvice

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