    Cons

    No autonomy over my own P&L - every single decision has to be signed off by senior management VERY internally focused at the expense of time for the customer Overfocused on short term turnover at the expense of long term planning/decisions Hard to progress above a certain level Progression slower than it used to be & slower than a recruiter will promise!

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

    Pros

    - Vast range of brands - Product discounts (50% off via the staff shop) - Young, energetic team - Relatively central office (Hammersmith) - Given a lot of responsibility early on

    Cons

    - Management and director team who are not open to new ideas - Very under resourced team - Long hours... not unusual to do a 60 hour week, and it is somewhat expected to cover the workload - A high number of interns and graduate scheme individuals - whilst this is great for them to learn working life, the reality is that you have a lot of inexperienced people who are involved in some business critical tasks - Extremely...

    Advice to Management

    Realise that the work hard-play hard expectation does get tiresome after a while. A lot of good, talented people leave within 2 years or so because they've just had enough. Put more staff into your teams and let people enjoy a life outside of work and you will get a lot more from your teams.
