    Pros

    Amazing school to learn about everything that is related with product management. You get in touch with supply, budgets, legal, trade marketing, market anaylsis. You leave L'Oréal as a data-driven person.

    Cons

    High level of Working hours. 25% of interns stay at the company due to lack of opening slots for head counts

    I worked at L'Oréal for less than a year

    Pros

    It is only good for your CV. It helps to find other better jobs. Six months are enough, I wouldn't stay longer.

    Cons

    Management unable to organize anything. Lack of scheduling. No tools to perform any kind of analysis. All the decisions based on feelings and not on data. Work life balance totally absent, due to the high inefficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Consider process innovation and do some courses on how to prioritize tasks. Like this you are likely to lose talents.

    I worked at L'Oréal for less than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to all firm's functions and see complexity of a multinational company.

    Cons

    I didn't learn anything valuable outside the company. I was constantly asked to fix small things. Few real responsibilities. They simply hire interns to do jobs that no one wants to do, like write emails and call creative agency to ask them to do small changes to commercials (i.e. make it bold, please more blue...) As in any marketing department that is not the headquarter, there is no strategic view. It's pure... operational marketing: execution of what Paris decides. People are stressed to execute things that someone else decided and they scream at you too often. Inefficient processes and old systems.

    Advice to Management

    Create a Corporate Culture. Innovate processes (you are not really digital if you only use social media). Offer yoga classes to Group product managers

    I worked at L'Oréal for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice people, good connections, challenging, looks good on resume. Very cool events.

    Cons

    As an intern you mostly get the jobs the product manager doesn't want to do herself. Lack of good management and structure. Very individualistic culture, different departements see each other as competition, almost don't communicate with each other and when they do they keep all valuable info to themselves. There is a high churn rate, what means there is no strong base to rely on.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with the interns, and make them feel part of the team, without exploiting them. They are more than just numbers. Organize yourselves better, there is a lack of structure that makes it chaotic.

    I have been working at L'Oréal

    Pros

    Great product perks. Highly ethical company to work for & leader in technology. All roles allow independent thinking to achieve tasks and hold large responsibilities that would not be afforded at other companies.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is awful. Peers and management too busy to reflect on projects delivered and recognise a job well done. True promotions are rare.. mostly employees move sideways.

    Advice to Management

    Allow management to enact the cultural change that is constantly spoken of, but not supported.
