    I worked at Lancome part-time

    Pros

    Discount throughout L'oreal Luxe brands.

    Cons

    Poor management. Not much room for growth within company.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more support for employees. Stop letting people getting away with obvious bullying. Very rude and speak down to beauty advisors. Take 1.5 hour long lunch breaks for a break that should be 30 mins, then when a beauty advisor/makeup artist is 1 minute late due to traffic a complaint is sent to HR. Very unfair workplace.

    I have been working at Lancome part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great discounts and generous allocation! head office has started to really value their retail employees - shown through the incorporation of Lancome Advisors into their National Advertisements Good support and room for growth - especially if you are a make-up artist Lots of room for creativity which is greatly encouraged Generally nice people to work for and with. Not too much cattiness from my experience Real sense...

    Cons

    The pay should really match companies which are 'less' luxury. Some area managers can be patronising and rude. I've experienced unfair and completely unprofessional behaviour boarding on bullying. But then, all companies have one or two people like this. Bullying etc is sometimes ignored

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with the well-being of your staff. Understand that they are human and treating them like a number or badly because they haven't performed is discouraging and does not work. Boost morale instead.
