    Cons

    Above everything else, L'Oreal is exceptional at sales - selling the product to customers, selling "opportunities" to new employees, and especially selling a certain type of delusion to everyone who works there.

    Advice to Management

    Without sounding like a broken record - please take off your L'Oreal-tinted glasses and assess the state of the company objectively.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Everyone at LOreal is Passionate for what they do. Everyday energe is unmatchable and the family feeling within your teams, despite the size of the company, is unbeatable. The products are best in class, so you work for something you beleive in. That gives you purpose.

    Cons

    Burochratic, need to like political interactions to thrive. Lacks structure.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on merit than on subjective preferences on HR topics. Invest in structuring HR processes , assesments, etc. Sponsor Masters programs.
