    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great starting salary
    - Fun and open environment
    - If you have passion for the industry, you will be amazed at what goes on behind the scenes
    - Option to work from home during the year
    - Finish at 3pm on Fridays in the fall/winter and 12:30pm on Fridays in the summer
    - Great benefits

    Cons

    - Barely anyone finished at 5pm -- Sometimes you notice, sometimes you don't. But it evens out when you get to leave early on Fridays, so there's no complaining there. If you love your team, staying later isn't as bad as people make it seem.

    Pros

    L'Oréal has great brands to work with and will offer you difficult challenges to work on.

    Cons

    The team dynamics is toxic, not set up for success. The competition between teams, the fact that everyone is stretched and stressed, A lot of managers are promoted too quickly without being ready to lead people, which results in a bad team spirit.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a growth mindset to help individuals work better together and stop being protective and defensive.

    Nothing.
    Not much else to say.

    Cons

    Segregation between full-time/part-time employees
    Segregation between unionized/non-unionized employees
    They prioritize seniority over actual competencies and knowledge.
    HR is completely opaque, not transparent at all with their promises or communications.
    Not many opportunities to grow.
    They expect free overtime.
    Completely unorganized, very few actual processes in place.
    Senior employees routinely bully newer employees, while HR and upper management looks the other way.
    Terrible culture. A lot of gossiping and rumour spreading.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and treat your employees like people.
    Put in place actual processes to ensure uniform work from all departments.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    L'Oreal was a great training place for new grads.
    Having been part of the commercial management trainee program, I was able to learn much about the retail landscape managing my own territory as well as get AC Nielsen training & insights from the KAM's. There was a lot of flexibility being on the road - a role that was less stressful than my marketing/finance counterparts. Benefits were great.

    Cons

    Although I never experienced it first hand, it seems that my marketing counterparts were often overworked or unhappy. Sales generally thrived in the fast paced L'Oreal environment.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    Always keep raising the bar and reinvent! L'Oreal employees have access to on-line doctor. You just sign in register, then you speak to a nurse you can be given an apt within the same day or are connected right away. The doctor acctualy takes time to discuss with you . Then does his diagnosis and sends the perscritpion your your pharmacy! I mean I did this twice at the comfort of my home saved my so much TIME and worry! My pediatrician was only avialble 3 days afterwards. I can't say enough about this service. Thank you L'Oreal now that makes my life so much easier!!!!!!!

    Cons

    There is always room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving feedback to your employees. Transparency is always best!
