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 Management

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

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere in the office Berkeley heights office is pretty new and very spacious Great perks for full time employees, especially in the corporate store Shuttle provided to NY office Summer hours and casual fridays

    Cons

    Office is in remote location in mid jersey Traffic to office is sometimes heavy Train station is not close to office Departments tend to socialize within

    Advice to Management

    Management works very well with employees, since there are not too many levels of delegation witching the company. Employee's are trusted to succeed in projects and are not micro-managed.


  2. Overall, it is a dynamic company that raised the bar in my personal and professional development.
