    I worked at L'Oréal for less than a year

    Pros

    - lots of responsibility early on, if they see potential in you you take on lots more - Great people. of course it depends on which team you are working with but for me, it really made the experience! - Learnt new things every day, job was never monotonous

    Cons

    - it can be a very stressful job, and clients + other teams are very demanding, they always want the work for yesterday, something you have to get used to and be able to handle and push back - unfortunately you have to pay for food which at most jobs at least tea and coffee is free... - Sometimes people are SO busy that it may be difficult to get time in with your manager. but depending on who the manager is, they... will ALWAYS make time for you but very limited downsides!

    I worked at L'Oréal for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place for learning about how marketing works in real life Some great individuals who you learn a lot from Interns get a lot of responsibility and their work can have an actual impact Great for the CV

    Cons

    Strong hierarchy with clear focus on promotion, rather than overall improvement of company Surprisingly little processes in place Low pay for interns compared to the value of the work they do
