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

    Pros

    - Product discounts and adhoc staff sales - Given responsibility early on - Open plan team seating, very few behind glass doors

    Cons

    Where to begin... The teams are extremely low on headcount, to the point where flexible/home working had to be brought in a few years ago and this has been readily jumped to try and escape 60 hour weeks (which were and still are the norm).

    Pros

    Free allocation, staff discount, perks, training days with extra perks! A reputable and well established brand who look after their staff very well.

    Cons

    Could have more one to one initial training when first starting with the brand to help individual needs of own learning

    Advice to Management

    Shouldn’t have to book Saturdays as a holiday- should be able to have Saturdays as a day off from time to time.
