I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great name, great brands, good products, trusted with a lot of responsibility from the start, people are proud to work for L'Oréal, International feel, great collegues

Cons

Lack of management skills, lack of good structure and good standardized processes, very poor compensation package compared to competitors, poor introduction to company and training, work/life balance is for some non-existing

Advice to Management

Spend more time developing the employees, search for candidates internally, have more structure in in the way you do business, develop managers through training and courses

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Good starting salary -discount on products -unlimited overtime

    Cons

    -very stressful environment -too busy to train new employees -people are not so welcoming, too much backstabbing and gossiping -life revolves around work, don't expect a personal life -high turnover, can't keep employees -HR lies to new recruits, promises them of a dream job -Most workers are young, because they are mostly fresh from university or have little experience, still naive, but they soon realize the L'Oreality and leave. A new set of young naive recruits enter and another set of overworked tired workers leave...this cycle never ends.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, the problem is that people leave due to high stress because there's not enough personnel. You will always have people leaving if you don't listen to their needs. Everyone is swamped with work. Stop focusing on production for a moment and try focusing on the real and bigger problem: employees well-being. If you ask every single employee if they are satisfied, they will tell you they hate this place. You only realize how brutal L'Oréal is once you get to work there, otherwise, it seems like the ideal place, bunch of bullcrap.
