    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    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 worked at L'Oréal for more than a year

    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...

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The perks of the job were nice (company store, expense accounts, etc)

    Cons

    Image matters more than substance throughout the entire company. A bunch of well-put-together airheads walking around acting catty and cliquey. If you're not French you're at a huge disadvantage and looked down upon if you work closely with colleagues or have a reporting structure up to people who are French. Capable and effective people are overlooked for promotion in lieu of people who are pretty or whose only...

    Advice to Management

    Do not focus on promoting your friends and thos who are “suitable with the L’Oreal cutlure” which changes depending on the management in place and not the global culture Set realistic and objective KPIs that can be measured by anyone and not subjectively by your manager only Respect your employee’s time and effort Give more credit to interns
