    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!

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people that work here for the most part (barring HR and top management) are great! You have the opportunity to work on some pretty cool projects. Location of office is amazing and very central.

    Cons

    You are only as good as your last presentation. Your managers and HR are constantly judging you and putting you in categories- Fast track? Poor performer? Be prepared to play politics...hard. If you don’t want to play the game-get out. Bravo you’ve been promoted to a new division. Not really. Now you have to re-prove yourself all over again. I’ve heard it over and over again - everyone is replaceable. Nope you aren’t special. Sorry. Transparency is not king. Everything is hush hush. Rumours are constantly flying.

    Advice to Management

    For some reason you are able to recruit some pretty amazing people. Treat them that way. You are spending so much energy trying to recruit new talent, what about trying to retain your old talent? No one should be allowed to belittle their employees but I have seen managers do it time and time again. Unfortunately they are still there. Their employees aren’t. Hmmm??

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good on your CV
    - Learn to be a slave, so all your future jobs with seem easy
    - Bonus and benefits are good

    Cons

    - Bullying, cliques of people
    - No work-life balance and extreme workload
    - No humanity, you are a number and always replaceable
    - They only care about numbers, not about the employees
    - Not ethical, even though they claim to be
    - HR does not care about you, they listen to the higher ups.
    - You will work weekends all the time and it is never enough.
    - If you divide your salary with the amount of hours, you make less than minimum salary
    - Prepare yourself for international VP visits during which you will not sleep for over a month
    - Only for extraverts, A type personalities.
    - They want everyone to be the same, they do not focus on strengths.

    Advice to Management

    The culture of this company needs to change. Treat your employees like humans, not slaves. Care about your people. I was bullied by my own boss for 2 years and HR did nothing so I left. Ended up in a burnout. Trust me, it's NOT worth it.

    - beautiful office and location
    - looks good on a CV
    - a lot of opportunity to grow

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees who work and challenge the status quo.. not just the ones who attend the cocktail hour and know who to befriend. This is not a popularity contest. This is a business.

    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.
