    Pros

    Benefits. If you are looking for great benefits Richemont is the right place.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity to grow if you are not French or don't speak French although this is Latin America Division most employees in this division don't speak spanish or even understand Latin culture. On their special events there is a strong feeling of division between European employees and American/Latin employees. If working for "Supporting Department" (ex. Accounting, Human Resources, IT, Warehouse) the division is very strong and there is no working team within department. I came across that one of the supervisor hardly finish High School and it was extremely difficult to work with, not only because of this lack of knowledge on the field but his attitude towards the company. It seems to me that most people were very unhappy with what there were doing and loyalty towards the product didn't exist.

    Advice to Management

    Don't underestimate employees origin, train future supervisor for such positions, take inconsideration knowledge, education and attitude when opportunities rises, have an open door policy. Build employee loyalty towards the product.

    Pros

    There are None. None what's so ever. I can't give you any.

    Cons

    This company is full of temp employees. And they don't care about their temp employees. Management doesn't listen when us temp employees voice our options about how to work better in the work place they just blow us off. This just isn't a very fun or friendly work environment. I just feel like they are using us as much as they can and don't care if we have families or a life outside work..

    And this company is so unorganized it's ridiculous. And the system they are using is so jacked up it makes us hard to do our job.. So I m glad to be gone.. It's really a blessing not to have to deal with a poorly ran company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.. They are there to help you. And stop bullying.

    I have been working at Richemont full-time

    Pros

    Product is amazing. Corporate employees in Shelton really care and are always extremely helpful.

    Cons

    Brand president is the most inept, negative, uninspiring human being I've ever worked for. Forget ever getting an original idea from this person. Thinks leading through intimidation and blame is effective. Typical everyone is expendable mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Could really be a great company. Stop putting people like this in positions of importance and visibility. Some one who obviously dislikes the product they represent and the clients who purchase them is a formula for failure. Wake up!

    Pros

    Appart from bargain on jewelry and watches, I cannot see any.

    Cons

    Richemont is a very chaotic company, badly organized and with a bad atmosphere in most department on top of that. Its matrical organisation does not help.

    Advice to Management

    Give more respect to your employees. Thus you will reduce the turnover, big time.
    Be less lofty, snobish and arrogant.

    Pros

    Good price on watches, on jewelleries and luxury goods.
    Other than that I do not see any good reason to work for Richemont.

    Cons

    Poor working condition: The management is of poor quality. Employees are not properly considered. On top of that the salaries and bonuses are lower than what you can find on the market.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and consider your employees better. Try to be less snobish, lofty and arrogant. Put your feet on the ground

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Richemont full-time (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 Management

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