    I have been working at Chanel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing staff perks, looks really good on your cv.

    Cons

    Don’t get any kind of support of area managers, they don’t give praise or thanks when doing well. They expect the world and give nothing back! Micro managed even down to the rota, you can’t be a your own manager, Chanel need to grow with the times and let managers actually manage.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the staff as you wish to be treated, you fail to realise that the ones on the shop floor are the ones that are taking the money and don’t get the same kind of benefits the area managers and higher get. Maybe support more on the shop floor and give thanks and praise when doing well instead of trying to micro manage and pick faults all the time.

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

    Pros

    Looks good on CV that you work/have worked for Chanel. However many HR professionals already found that if you work for Chanel on managerial position it is because you are somehow related to mid or senior management (family, friend etc.)

    Cons

    Professionalism and expertise are not the main factors appreciated and highly valued. You must be related to mid or/and senior management to progress in career.

    Advice to Management

    Do not ruin the business...
