    I worked at L'Oréal

    Pros

    The free/discounted products, the working hours, the canteen, the summer working hours, some of the social events

    Cons

    Applicable to the finance department: Very top-down driven, hard to get involved in stuff outside your tasks, you cannot change the way things are done

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about Marketing that goes beyond the cosmetics industry. A lot of people come from other large CPG conglomerates, Advertising Agencies, Consultancies, etc. Everyone is willing to talk to you about their previous roles and how their current roles fits into L'Oreal. L'Oreal is a great place to build a career or as a stepping stone to something more fitting if L'Oreal isn't for you.

    Cons

    While the company advocates for transparency, sometimes you can't get the reasoning behind certain top-level decisions that don't make sense logically. After being here for a certain time, you will notice that everyone is very cliquey. Tends to be very gossipy around here. Not as collegial as you would think it would be for such a large company. I think the company can improve on ensuring that everyone is not being...

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The positives include: -Lots of free and discounted product -Young/fun co-workers -Nice office following the most recent round of renovations -Good mentorship available if you seek it out

    Cons

    Above everything else, L'Oreal is exceptional at sales - selling the product to customers, selling "opportunities" to new employees, and especially selling a certain type of delusion to everyone who works there. Here are the main difficulties I faced while working at L'Oreal: -3 out of 5 senior and mid-level managers are generally unequipped for the role This means a lack of understanding of what it means to...

    Advice to Management

    Without sounding like a broken record - please take off your L'Oreal-tinted glasses and assess the state of the company objectively. The issues I mentioned have been voiced hundreds of times over the years and no one has done anything about it. You know what the problems are, you just need to choose to resolve them.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great starting salary - Fun and open environment - If you have passion for the industry, you will be amazed at what goes on behind the scenes - Option to work from home during the year - Finish at 3pm on Fridays in the fall/winter and 12:30pm on Fridays in the summer - Great benefits

    Cons

    - Barely anyone finished at 5pm -- Sometimes you notice, sometimes you don't. But it evens out when you get to leave early on Fridays, so there's no complaining there. If you love your team, staying later isn't as bad as people make it seem.

    Pros

    Great benefits, workspace, and energy at the new Hudson Yards office. Definitely a sink or swim environment; fast paced and exciting.

    Cons

    Can be political and junior employees can sometimes be left out when big meetings come around, but that is one a team by team basis.

    Pros

    The company invests heavily in personal career development and growth within. The diversity of talent, creativity, and experience makes L'Oreal an always interesting and engaging place to create and develop.

    Cons

    The expectation at Loreal is that you are always prepared and ready to "fight" for your opinion. This is something to learn from and emulate, but at times, the work can feel combative as ideas are often laced with emotion given the nature of the work.
