    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The pay & benefits are slightly above average, not the best, but good. You get rewarded for achievement. The business is so varied that you can have a whole lifetime career with L'Oreal and never get bored. It's a fast-moving, entrepreneurial culture with empowerment for anyone who wants to take it.

    Cons

    You need to be on your game all the time, and the pace of action is very fast. People change jobs very frequently so you're always building new relationships which, whilst stimulating, can slow down progress. French culture takes time to understand. The london office is very tired and needs updating. The executive offices are beautiful, reflecting the brands. Everyone else works in cramped spaces at ugly desks.

    I worked at L'Oréal for more than a year

    Pros

    - Character building - Certainly a learning experience - You get real responsibility - Staff shop made it worthwhile

    Cons

    - Very unbalanced work/social life - If you only speak English, learn French if you want to progress further than 50k salary - Expect to be a scapegoat if you're an intern - If you have a problem, the last place you can go to is HR

    I have been working at L'Oréal for less than a year

    Pros

    I have had the best summer internship at L'Oreal, the opportunities for interns is really impressive, and the experience I have gained is hugely helpful looking forward. During my 10 weeks I have been fully supported by HR and the Learning team who have provided really helpful training, particularly supporting us with public speaking and managing our priorities. I would highly recommend this employer to anyone looking for a great insight into marketing who has an interest in the beauty industry

    Cons

    Fast- paced work ethic means you are put to work from day one, this is not your typical internship where you make coffee.
