I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Fantastic people & products
Really can rotate functionally which is very rare in corporate America
Best benefits anywhere
Highly compensated - especially upper levels
Sense of purpose, belief in the company, pride when telling people it's L'Oreal

Cons

Inefficient in a lot of aspects - still lots of room to make things work faster and smoother
IT is nowhere close to cutting edge
More work than there are people

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People development needs to be part of the culture...saying we are doing it and doing it are two different things; better work-life balance could really help retain great talent...there's nothing wrong with working remotely or from home if the work force is working,
