Pros

L'oreal is a well respected global company with many brands. It is great to have in your resume. If you want to learn marketing this is the company for you.

Cons

Finance operates like a boys club. Innovation and dissent are not valued. There is a complete lack of communication and planning that leads to unnecessary hectic deadlines. Analysts do the bulk of the work and some upper management - mostly those that have been there for eons- act like cogs in the machine. Because we are a marketing based company finance has little influencing power and often have to sign off on launches and promotions that we know will fail.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make finance an equal partner in the company's decision making. Ensure that upper management is pulling their weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what you AE's need to balance their work week. Less admin and time out of the field dealing with forecasting, on SFDC
