    Good place to develop compentencies as given a lot of autonomy & scope of action. "Make it happen" philosophy that is really challenging.

    Pros

    Lots of experience across many elements of the business. Exceptional brands & products surrounded by a young, bright & ambitious team.

    Nothing is impossible culture can be very demanding on the individual. Not always rewarded for merit but rather how loud one shouts.

    Advice to Management

    Give more direction, autonomy & support to teams.

    Product Manager in London, England
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at L'Oréal

    Pros

    Responsibility for a project The girls The name of your resume Potential to progress quickly due to high turnover of staff

    Cons

    Micro management Need to speak French Lack of innovation unless you work in Paris No strategic value unless you are a senior manager in Paris Some people have been promoted simply as they have been there a long time even if they lack any common sense and judgement They never think you'll leave Some senior managers will not even recognise junior people's exsistence The CEO thinks this therefore you think this

    Advice to Management

    Look for the young bright sparks and promote them accordingly not purely on time accrued Take on management consultants, they are expensive but they will make you more efficient All countries do not operate the same, a product may work in one place and not in another, local staff need to be able to speak up Senior management from Paris need to hit reality, dare to speak to some junior people and ask them... honestly what they think not just the people trying to impress you to get your jobs.
