    Pros

    + Job moves happen frequently due to people leaving so there's always something new to get stuck into
    + Agile working means that you can work out of the office once in a while
    + Lots of NPD and new initiatives to keep you busy
    + Ambitious individuals

    Cons

    - Long working hours. Most of sales do a 10 hour day as a minimum and this is only getting longer (I usually start at 8/8:30am and finish at 7pm), meaning I'm too tired most nights to socialise and switch off. Sales contracts are 35 hours per week...
    - Management are very slow to make decisions and often seem to be looking out for themselves by wanting a large amount of information. This can mean that we annoy the retailers and miss opportunities
    - More concerned with market share than profit
    - Low pay for the market (between £5k and £10k less compared to our competitors), no overtime or days in lieu for all the extra hours
    - Little collaborative approach to issues or problems. Those in sales are expected to come up with the answers individually and then present to management, but then of course they're slow to act
    - L'Oreal is a very 'lean' company = not enough people to make all the work = sales teams work long hours

    Pros

    Multinational company that has a lot of mean to develop its staff, compensation and benefits, multiplicity of career paths, autonomy

    Cons

    difficult to have a working and private life balance, difficult to get support when you face difficulties with your line manager, difficult to evolve if you don't know the good person (lack of transparency in the career management sometimes)

    Advice to Management

    Take the principle of managing with generosity as a value that has to guide your day to day business. Making line managers accountable for the way they manage their team in stead of taking only into account the quantifiable objectives set.
