    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Innovative, fast moving, young, fresh culture and forward thinking

    Cons

    A little too hierarchical for my liking and you really need to be a French national to succeed.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The pay & benefits are slightly above average, not the best, but good. You get rewarded for achievement. The business is so varied that you can have a whole lifetime career with L'Oreal and never get bored. It's a fast-moving, entrepreneurial culture with empowerment for anyone who wants to take it.

    Cons

    You need to be on your game all the time, and the pace of action is very fast. People change jobs very frequently so you're always building new relationships which, whilst stimulating, can slow down progress. French culture takes time to understand. The london office is very tired and needs updating. The executive offices are beautiful, reflecting the brands. Everyone else works in cramped spaces at ugly desks.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many priorities. Focus more.

    Pros

    Nice benefits package, nice offices, multi-brand and big footprint/locations

    Cons

    Management works on this transformation project but it’s not translating to lower levels; disfunctional in many aspects where R&R are defined but not inforced; hire from outside and encourage changes but the speech ‘in L’Oreal is like this’ is everywhere

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the change you talk about or just assume who you trully are; Be honest about the true values of the company
