Pros

A true luxury global retailer. You will learn so much about the complexities of doing business internationally - from cultural nuances to demographic preferences.

Cons

As a subsidiary of LVMH, it felt like everything was driven by meeting shareholder expectations, whether or not it was realistic for the company.

Advice to Management

Recognize and reward your key talent. Hire people, especially in the planning world. More often than not, teams are extremely lean causing people to burn out rather quickly.

    Pros

    Good employee benefits. If you are crazy for brands, this is tthe place for you. They offer 25-35 % discount on all regular priced products at their outlets. And trust me it covers the biggest of brands that you can think of, including Tag heuer,Longine, Omega, Estee Laude, Fendi, Marc, Coach, Chanel, Hennessy and list goes on.

    Cons

    Small environment for IT folks. Though on one hand it means less work load, on the other hand it is you loose the opportunity to learn new things.

    Pros

    Good exposure
    Opportunity to work overseas
    Great learning experience
    Promote from within
    Great benefits
    Attractive bonus
    Once you are being sent overseas, you are well taken care of by their "Expat" package that does not have an expiration date as for as I know.

    Cons

    Office politics (better to know which one to stay away from).
    Lack of team work (watch your back)
    Candidates/employees who are internationally mobile are highly preferred.
    Talented employees with great performance are most likely going to stay at the same job level if they can't work in other countries due to family or other personal obligations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the local employees as happy as you treat Expats.
