    Lost the family culture. Has become like every other cookie cutter retailer with the same cookie cutter management style. Good luck with that !

    I worked at Lagardère full-time

    Pros

    During my tenure with Lagardere's sports division I got the opportunity to work with numerous exciting projects covering large parts of the sports industry. In its efforts to gain ground in the sports business the company empowered us the employees with the opportunity (and responsibility) to go for it, to try out new ways and to build our own success.

    Cons

    The flip side of the pros described above was that the company tended to look to - in a hope of increasing earnings faster - almost always be in a phase of reorganization and restructuring of its assets, aims and set-up. This of course sometimes made it difficult for an employee to focus on or accomplish long term strengths and success of projects, partnerships etc.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to continue to empower employees to take a large part in the direction of the business and not to be afraid of exploring new grounds. But also try to stay closer to the path for longer times and make sure to better your communication regarding upcoming changes to the organization.
