    terrible

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Ontario, CA

    Prosnew products, ever changing, sponsors events

    Constoo much stress, too demanding, no appreciation for staff, no organization, very poorly run, have a huge turn over rate, run by men, very few females in upper management in all of LOreal, not just Canada, gets environmental awards & yet fills landfills with discarded, unused signage by the ton, should spend more on operational side rather than marketing, cut back on the millions for celebrity endorsements, profitable & yet cuts staff, so concerned with beating P&G that they have lost sight of their own business, in a sad state & declining rapidly

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have never seen a company with so many different employees going on burnout leave, ever!

    Logistics (Former Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    Pros1) good learning opportunity.
    2) it's a well known company so it does look good on your resume, but no better or worse than any other well known company.
    3) everyone is so overworked and bitter that, ironically, it makes for good conversation and lots of good laughs with the people that you work with.

    Cons1) 0 work-life balance (meaning you will be expected to work evenings, weekends, holidays, etc...)
    2) HR policy is as follows: a) hire new grads, b) pay them low salaries and work them 60 hour/week, c) they'll stick around anyway because they want the experience and they fell for the "OMG I work at L'Oreal how cool", d) once they've burned out or found normal paying or normal hour jobs elsewhere they'll leave, e) replace them with the next new grad, f) repeat. Different story with management though, I hear they invest in their managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWow, where do I begin....
    a) Hire more people! Maybe than your turnover rate won't be astronomically high! You're loosing money retraining new hires all the time anyway!
    b) Pay new grads a decent salary, I know they're easily replaceable, but they're also the backbone of your organization, so invest in your non-management employees.

    Great learning experience, no work life balance.

    Coordination Planner (Former Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsIf you are motivated, smart and creative you will move up fast within the company learning very quickly and gaining responsibility just as quickly. Great place to begin you career. Keep in mind it is probably the largest group of over achievers under one roof you will ever meet.

    ConsNo transparency between management and lower levels and work life balance is non-existent if you want to move up the corporate ladder quickly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to retain your top talent encourage work life balance and walk the walk. Don't ask for the sky all the time as you will burn your employees as they are the most dynamic and talented teams I have ever worked with.

    Energetic work environment in the beginning with increasingly stagnant opportunities.

    Demand Planner (Former Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsWorked with a great team and had a very good learning experience. Good environment if you want to try many different jobs on the same level.

    ConsVery political work environment. Human resources guidelines are unclear at best and only seem to improve when you say you'll be leaving. Not a lot of room to grow. Low salaries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more open and honest communication about future possibilities.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros-You gain great responsibility as soon as you start
    -Salary is above average

    Cons-HR can be very picky require a lot from you

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
