    Pros

    Beautiful effective products, given allocation of £172,50 twice a year retail value. Also given products at training to try. Given uniform .

    Cons

    As an Account Manager the Salary was very hard to survive on independently. Having so many famous models i felt it would have been more appropriate to reward front line staff ( Clarins currently employ no famous people to promote products that im aware of)

    I have been working at L'Oréal

    Pros

    An amazing opportunity- a scheme that lasts one year, with the chance to discover three brands for 4 month periods each. It gives great exposure to different brands in the company before you start a full time job after the year management trainee scheme!

    Cons

    Moving so often means that you have to let go of your existing projects you have worked on without getting to see them through.

    First, thanks for taking the time to give us feedback on your experience at L'Oréal UK. We're sad to hear your view on our senior management as well as that the Work Smart Program isn't working. When we implemented Work Smart half a year ago, we knew that it would take time for our managers to fully adopt it -- big changes like this happen slowly and we hope that you can give it some more time to be fully impact across all parts of the company. In any case, we also recommend you speak to any of your HR team about any issues you may be facing - they're there for you any time you need them.
