    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.

    Pros

    The best thing to work at L'Oreal is that you have space to initiate, speak out and realize your idea. Also to work on out of scope projects which will enhance your knowledge and abilities to switch to others positions in the future.

    Cons

    This company is not for everyone. If you can handle hard pressure from an organized chaos, then thumbs up!

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great HR department, good career and reasonable pay progress

    Cons

    People are overly competitive, not much teamwork, quite a bit of hostility because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Try to not pit your brand teams against each other - they should be complementing each other (since they target different consumers) and helping each other out.

    I have been working at L'Oréal

    Pros

    Great brands and products. Nice office facilities. Regional / international exposure. Large budgets and large projects.

    Cons

    Hiring quality decreases. Emphasis on politics & process instead of value creation. Slow mobility. Average benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Everything going on is part of the normal process of a company growing that large.

    Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in Montreal, QC

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at L'Oréal

    Pros

    Dynamic teams who genuinely strive for collaboration, strong training ground for junior talent with immediate access to exposure in front of senior stakeholders, room to contribute new ideas and evolve within the company, including international mobility opportunities.

    Cons

    Extremely high expectations - both internal and from international level - drive a high intensity and pressured environment which creates for a challenging work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster a dynamic environment for training new talent, but increase focus on retention vs. recruitment to strengthen long-term talent pool within the organization.
