I worked at Chanel full-time

Pros

The people at Chanel USA are smart, talented and passionate about what they're doing. They love CHANEL and care about keeping it the best brand in the world. Especially when compared to other fashion and beauty companies, the people are friendly and welcoming to newcomers.

Cons

Things move fairly slowly, since everyone is worried about being a "steward of the brand." Since it's headquartered in Paris, you have to wait for headquarters to get a lot of things done - which means sometimes projects get scuttled. Most of the offices are on W. 57th Street and 5th Avenue so there's no more room for people. Interns moving into a full-time position seemed like the exception here. They're happy to use free labor, but there's very little chance you'll become full-time.

Advice to Management

Create a creative hub in the US to develop some campaigns for this market.

    I worked at Chanel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Chanel is a 1st class environment and organization. Everything required for an employee to complete their job or assignment is always available.

    Cons

    I have no cons to share at this time. My employment was ended by a company reorganization, otherwise I feel i would still be employed with Chanel.
