    Pros

    The people around you are all equally dedicated to the success of the brand- it's motivating to work amongst people who are as driven as you.

    Cons

    The company expects endless work and never is satisfied. You can work yourself until you burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Too many meetings- need to institute a no-meeting day!

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy to move up if you speak french

    Cons

    Mad house, no structure at all, you only move up if you are one of the favorites ( speak french), insane amount of hours, everyone is so overloaded with work!!! company is getting cheaper and cheaper, by that i mean reducing sick days from unlimited to 3 days, cancelling Christmas parties, limiting business travel, even launch meetings ( you bring your own food), average turn over in certain departments is almost 50%

    Advice to Management

    stop being cheap, hire more people

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a great company to work for. Excellent benifits. Great training seminars across all skills. Also very safety orientated with good safety training

    Cons

    Not very much upward mobility for my position. Communication between departments was lacking and there was a lot of the blame game going.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication policies would have been great. Alot more problem solving instead of wasting energy on trying to place blame. Needed more team building.
