    Which of these 2 offers would you take: 1. Chief of staff to CEO at a luxury/fashion company, part of a larger luxury conglomerate (think LVMH, Richemont). TC ~ $300K. Cool perks and fun job. Good path to leadership within conglomerate. Can walk to office. 2. Director of Corp. strategy at a legacy CPG company (think Kraft, Danone, Campbell). TC ~$350K. Less “sexy” industry. Clear path for leadership. Commute time to office much longer (1.5 hrs of commute a day).

      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!

      Pros

      Fabulous brands; insatiable appetite for perfection and genuine passion for brands and products seen from every level of employee - from production facilities to craftsmen, right up to board members.

      Cons

      Lack of team camaraderie, empathy. Vain, egocentric leadership in many brands. Extremely French corporate culture (particularly if you're based in Paris HQs/ maisons) where arrogance and loquacity are often valued over humility and ability. No work/ life balance and inflexible work arrangements mean many highly strung, overworked employees.
