    I worked at LVMH full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing Brands and very talented and driven people Great experience if you want to stay in Luxury business Staff sales

    Cons

    Work/life balance is company aspiration but nobody lives by it. Hours are whatever the job demands. Quite often the teams are under-resourced given the workloads expected. Salary - generally lowest level of market rate and pretty terrible in junior positions as they rely on the pull of the brands to attract great people. The drawback is the great people usually leave after a couple of years once they got the name on their CV. Being French is a huge advantage!

    Advice to Management

    Value the people you already have in the business rather than spending more on perpetually recruiting replacements

    I have been working at LVMH full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    LVMH group, good on CV. Good exposure if you are an intern

    Cons

    Lack of development opportunities. Lack of true leaders in the organisation. Being non-French refrain from career progress

    Advice to Management

    Maisons should align a set of core protocol across the group. Senior management are lack of leadership skills. Some are incompetent to their role. Some have integrity issues

    I have been working at LVMH for more than a year

    Pros

    work life balance is good here along with great benefits. a true 9-5

    Cons

    -Very poor culture and HR is only there to protect the company and not the employees. -No communication between upper management and employees -No opportunity for career advancement. French National are brought in for management level positions and up. Americans are not considered. If you're looking to stay in the same position for 20 years, not work hard, and not looking for career advancement... this is the place for you.
