    Pros

    As an intern at L'Oréal you are given real responsibilities within the team. There are plenty of opportunities to learn and grow, as long as you take the intitiative!

    Cons

    The company has a strong culture, which is for sure not a bad thing, though it has to fit your personality.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy in leading projects. Good place to learn with intelligent work colleagues and about with different fields of activity.

    Cons

    Bad work-life balance. If you leave the office at your normal time (even if you have finished all your tasks of the day), people will ask if you're not "motivated" enough to work. Short term results are overrated. What matters is the result you had in the last campaign or with the last product launch - they don't really evaluate if it was relevant taking into account the overall company strategy or if it's relevant/sustainable...
