    I have been working at Moët Hennessy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A very "all hands on deck" type of environment with immense opportunities for growth and exposure within the spirits, experiential, and marketing industries.

    Cons

    Not a ton of room for growth. Relatively small NY office with a lot of external hiring.

    Recognized Brands, budgets to get the job done

    If you don't have someone in upper management that will pull you up, good luck getting into higher level roles.

    See all your staff instead of the ones you want to see.

    I worked at Moët Hennessy full-time

    Pros

    World class portfolio of brands that you will be super proud to represent

    Cons

    Very silo teams, very French mentality (no one can ever get an A on their report card no matter how hard you work and by how far you exceed your deliverables- quel dommage!)

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive about promoting from within

  7. Don't be fooled by self described "Luxury" company

    I worked at Moët Hennessy full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Great brand portofolio but company success has been primarily been driven by one brand, Hennessy. Good hiring pool due to NY headquarter location. Great "travel income" as premium business incentive trips are available to many employees employees. Product samples. Event/Experiential Marketing a company strength.

    Cons

    Corporate/Regional relationship has been dyfunctional for years. Company "churns" NY employees. Management does not "walk the walk" re: life/work balance. Career advancement very limited by organizational structure resulting in consistently high turnover rate. Maison micromanagement of US management creates overly competitive, distrustful, and constant "fire drill" enviornment.

    Advice to Management

    HR should conduct mandatory exit interviews that perhaps would result in improved employee retention and improvement in chronic work/life balance issue and less frequent corporate finger pointing in all directions

    I worked at Moët Hennessy full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Nice location. Competitive compensation. Great brands. Lot of perks, free product, travel. Opportunity to work on some interesting projects.

    Cons

    Senior Management not in touch with staff, not supportive. No planning whatsoever. People learn to be selfish in order to meet their objectives, so teamwork is virtually nonexistent. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the rate of turnover and ask yourself why so many people leave, and then read the exit interviews to understand how you can retain talented people and make your organization healthier and more prosperous and competitive.
