    Internship

    Former Employee - Assistant International Project Manager in Clichy (France)
    Former Employee - Assistant International Project Manager in Clichy (France)

    I worked at L'Oréal as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    A great challenging company, with a strong corporate culture. The firm is focused on innovation which makes it one of the most competitive company. The international marketing department is at the core of every market, that makes problematics very interesting to solve.

    Cons

    Decision taking process is long and hard. We sometimes take too long to develop products and miss some instinct feeling. The company is also hierarchy-focused which makes relation ships between employees more vertical than horizontal. There's a lack of interactivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen carefully each members of team in order to ease the decision process.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can have a carreer you would never have imagined for yourself, just because HR People care about Who you really are, and challenge you about your project even your dream. And you will meet really different people, all very smart, différent, unique, and with strong personnalities

    Cons

    If you dont want to work hard and surpass yourself, its better to choose another company. Some managers would need to update their management skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to younger generation and encourage collaboration and collective spirit

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've changed jobs 4 times since I started and have been given responsabilities at the very beginning of my career.
    i'm constantly challenged by my managers & am given lots of opportunities to "shine".
    Great projects with the financial means to achieve great results.
    The compensation package is good with great benefits.

    Cons

    The workload and the ryhtm is sometimes tough to handle. You have to be very resilient because the expectancies are high. The Talent culture based on the starification of individuals is sometimes annoying.
