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

    Pros

    Great well-known brand, fantastic history, beautiful product

    Cons

    Management and progression purely driven by powerplay and politics not results. Try to be progressive but management style very old fashioned. Driven by fear. Very French. Dysfunctional atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Break up politics by hiring diverse people with various skill sets, define skills needed per function and train people more for growth

    I have been working at Cartier full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Prestige of brand is good for cv. Luxury products are a pleasure to work with and you benefit from 40% discount.

    Cons

    Progression is difficult due to the lack of professional training. The best positions are given directly to French business school graduates from head office and not advertised internally . Poor communication - seems as though people have a 'knowledge is power' attitude and are reluctant to share important knowledge or updates on developments.

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

    Pros

    Lots of internal and external resources. If you lucky enough to have a good senior leader/manager in your department, there is definitely a lot to learn. For those comfortable in sucking up and manipulation, this company can be a very good environment to work in as you can slack off and pass your work load off.

    Cons

    Alot of staff have personal agendas and are quite unfriendly to new comers. Culture is very local. Certain management will praise employees not by performance but by how well you can serve them.
