    I worked at Villeroy & Boch full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This company has beautiful products that are easy to sell and this is a great place to work for experience, however, that is all.

    Cons

    Under paid and over worked with no work life balance and horrible management. explains it best. No office morale. You can feel the tension and negative energy as you walk through the door. I would not suggest making a career with this company. You will not receive a raise. It's a stepping stone at best.

    Advice to Management

    You will get more out of employees who are appreciated and compensated accordingly.

    I have been working at Villeroy & Boch full-time

    Pros

    Company has a great brand and the best products. Other than that I really can not find much else to say that is good.

    Cons

    The structure of the company is a mess. You have family members with huge egos and their entourages of yes men. The company could stand a restructuring to cut out some layers in marketing and finance. Really the company can not get out of it's own way.

    Advice to Management

    Less family on the board. Hire a USA company and let them manage the Americas. Move everything out of Luxembourg. Streamline marketing.

    I have been working at Villeroy & Boch full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pretty rewarding and easy to get ahead if you display ambition, leadership and initiative Company is very loyal and accomodating to its long-term employees and offers great benefits and flexible schedule Good company culture, gets busy at times, but pretty low pressure job Fantastic products, great brand - proud to work there International work opportunities

    Cons

    Some of the business and organizational processes are a little antiquated On the Corporate Level the company is a bit disorganized, very slow turnaround in regard to any decision making Pay below industry average

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the organizational structure and weed out low-performers Develop digital/marketing departments Offer better incentives for younger employees to grow with the company

    I have been working at Villeroy & Boch part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The product is top notch, the management team is very receptive of new ideas, and the flexibility of the job was perfect while I was in college.

    Cons

    Possibility of continual promotion in the company is rather limited due to the company's small presence in the US

    Advice to Management

    Open more company stores (only 5 in the US)

    I have been working at Villeroy & Boch full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Long standing history, good brand built

    Cons

    Extremely slow to react to market, very bad matrix organization, no support nor reward, no recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Need to step out and look at how others manage. No one mention does not meant everything is fine. When one leaves without hesitation or regret, this is a company that needs to reflect.

    Pros

    Gives you a title promotion

    Not much welfare for employees, especially not for Asia offices. Gives employees and impression that the upper management in HQ are only thinking for themselves and not for those below.
