    I worked at Chanel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Beauty training and free product.

    Cons

    The corporate executives are rude and uptight. Lots of negativity and not enough positive feedback. They force employees to wear a cheap Chanel uniform made in China. The uniform is badly made and fell apart. Horrible pay!

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect, pay them more and don't be so strict on dress codes. Let employees express themselves with their makeup and individual style. Invest in your employees. If corporate executives strut around wearing Chanel clothing other employees should get a nice outfit to wear instead of a poorly made jacket from China.

    - Unique brand, awesome products
    - Great corporate culture centered around brand success
    - Continuous evolution, strength of private ownership

    Cons

    Maintain the legacy and spirit alive, and long live the brand!
