    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - Significant level of autonomy - Flexible schedule - Plenty of opportunities to be entrepreneurial in your territory

    Cons

    - Very bureaucratic environment - Poor management significantly impacts team morale - Lack of upward mobility if you are unwilling to move to Montreal - Communication between head office and field team is problematic; feedback from field teams is rarely leads to improvements in strategy - They don't invest in the professional development of their employees

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to your sales reps given that you emphasize the importance of gathering market intelligence that is communicated to head office - Value your employees and take reasonable sources of job dissatisfaction as opportunities to improve your organization and reduce turnover

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The positives include: -Lots of free and discounted product -Young/fun co-workers -Nice office following the most recent round of renovations -Good mentorship available if you seek it out

    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. Here are the main difficulties I faced while working at L'Oreal: -3 out of 5 senior and mid-level managers are generally unequipped for the role This means a lack of understanding of what it means to...

    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. The issues I mentioned have been voiced hundreds of times over the years and no one has done anything about it. You know what the problems are, you just need to choose to resolve them.

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    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.
