    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,
