I worked at LVMH full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Fantastic brands with emotionally driven employees that execute strategies almost faultlessly. Having worked for a few other companies I can safely say that the reason for these brands being so successful is the commitment of the Marketing teams, efficiency of spend and excellence in hiring external consultancy to find a winning strategy
Sample sales for sure
Ambition. Once you accept the pay is rubbish and do your job the experience actually becomes very valuable. especially when you leave as you realise they think differently (and often better) than their competitorsCons
The pay is low. No point pretending otherwise. My salary after I left was double (and at a similar level to the position I had there). Work can be frenetic and emotionally draining but that is because you care.
A long term career there is undeniably difficult if you are not French. Most of their brands are french though so isnt too hard to see why. In addition the HR teams are less interested in personal development than the development of the brand or business as a whole.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Encourage cross fertilisation of ideas between maisons and brands. Surely there is a lot to learn that isnt because this almost never happens.
Given the challenges of not being French, either teach your staff the language (and stress it's importance) or operate like most other businesses and make English the language you require in order to succed in a global role (unless it is a Chinese or Spanish speaking territory for which the role is responsible)RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
