    Pros

    Great benefits, early Fridays, work from home twice a month, mat leave top-up, discounts on products, working in the downtown core

    Cons

    Management can barely say good morning to you if you aren't at their level, HR doesn't care about your development, lack of training, in many positions there is very little work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Say hello to everyone including the janitor. Realize all the people going on burnout is because you are giving them way too much. Look like you CARE about your people.

    Pros

    L`Oreal is a place where you can learn a tremendous amount
    You eat what you cook = you work hard, you will get rewarded
    The people are incredible, kind and intelligent and make coming into work a pleasure
    The diversity of backgrounds create a inclusive atmosphere
    The professional division is a great place to learn, strive and cooperate (my favorite division)

    Cons

    Improvement in integration in role
    Credit should be given where credit is due ;)

    Advice to Management

    Reward the managers who develop their teams and develop individuals (yes its about the numbers but its about people too)

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

    Pros

    The Pleasure to work with Talented & Passionate Colleagues in Diverse Teams .
    The Chance to Always Grow thanks to strong investments in trainings like the 5stars Digital Upskilling.
    The Opportunity to have an Impact, to be an intra-preneur and lead change from day one whatever your position or age.
    The Possibility to have a well balanced and fulfilling Family Life and to contribute to a better world through meaningful Projects ( Sustainability & Social ).

    Cons

    You cannot go half way. You have to be strongly involved and work enough to succeed.
    Do not wait for People to tell you what to do. You would be disappoint. Be daring and make proposals. Take risks.
    Be ready to get feedbacks positive & negative & learn from them.
    There is a constant quest for Excellence that means you have to be ready to always learn & train, to do projects, undo them, to redo them better.

    Advice to Management

    Great New Behaviors Project started in 2016 for even more Team Collaboration, Trust & Empowerment. Keep going !
