      Pros

      - nice lifestyle with the job - young teams who are willing to bring the brands forward - lots of responsibilities from the start

      Cons

      - overhours, even you need to leave the office on time, often you finish work from home until late at night - depending on the teams often hostile environment - feedback on incompetent leaders are continuously ignored by HR and those manager keep getting promoted as long as the sales numbers are correct - a lot of talks on inclusiveness, but mostly as a PR story

      Pros

      50% off L'Oréal's many products

      Cons

      L'Oréal Canada (Montreal) is by far the worst company I've ever worked for, Here are just some reasons why: - An infantile working environment: You'll often hear employees mocking their colleague's clothes and hair behind their back, gossiping, and acting like cliquey teenagers. In general, you don't feel like you're working with adults; you'll feel like you're back in high school. - A lack of diversity: The majority of employees all have the same educational background, career path and personality, which often leads to groupthink. - Red tape: Even completing the simplest tasks requires so much time and effort because of all the red tape. If you try to make things more efficient, you'll be met with "this is how it's always been done, why change it?" - Long hours: Due to all the red tape, expect to work way over 40 hours per week, even if you're at a very junior level. When you calculate your hourly wage, you'll realize your salary is just okay. Also, you'll be paying for tea/coffee/snacks out of your own pocket, so keep that in mind while you're working all those long hours. - Overall obnoxious attitude: A lot of employees think they know it all because they're working at L'Oréal. But, most of them are living in a bubble and out of touch with reality and their customers. - Lack of collaboration: Do not expect colleagues to help you for free. You'll have to show them what's in it for them and how this can help with their career aspirations. Colleagues see others as competitors, not allies, which creates a very toxic work environment.
