    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Learn a lot. Very good for 2-3 years. Leave after! Will not be compensated for your work/effort. Exposure to Senior Management very early.

    Cons

    Mostly support "type A" personalities. Very difficult for introverts. Very bad IT Management Systems. Finance is not seen as an essential player at L'Oreal.

    Advice to Management

    More training. Better Management Systems. More accountability. And more unbiased performance evaluations.

    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 !

    Pros

    Get to have an overview on the overall market, company strategies, tools and action plans. Improve analytical skills and oblige oneself to be fully updated on Market/Categories trends.

    Cons

    On the theoretical side of tasks. No influence on operations. Hard to integrate it internally with sales and marketing teams.

    Rotate sales/marketing people onto this job.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You learn how to manage your own company since you end up doing the job of everyone from marketing, trade, supply chain, forecasting, finance. You get a strong company name for your next job.

    Cons

    Bad reputation among recruiters - they refer to L'Oréal candidates as lacking the strategic vision. Immature culture , management is driven by fear, no empowered employees, long working hours (even weekends), decisions are pushed from management and not from brands.

    Advice to Management

    HR is very weak, they don't know how to solve this issue and directors are living in a parallel world.

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Yearly bonus. Well-known and respected company. Lots of possibilities to grown within the company.

    Cons

    Highly competitive work environment, long work hours, too much pressure coming from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should foster a cooperative culture instead of encouraging employees to be too much competitive. It creates a toxic work environment and demotivate people in the long run.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been with L'Oreal for a little over a year now and honestly love working here. My colleagues are smart, competent and hard working. The environment is fast paced and challenging but employees are given every opportunity to excel and succeed. If you are motivated and ambitious you'll likely really enjoy working here... especially if you have an entrepreneurial spirit.

    Cons

    With anything challenging things take time and effort. Expect to work long hours, especially during peak periods. You will be pushed and sometimes stressed but its worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize outdated and archaic software to more user friendly alternatives. This will improve productivity and help modernize the workforce.
