    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very dynamic, good brands and products, strong corporate culture, fair treatment, all official taxation and salary (all on time), flexible work time, trainings and development for some positions. Chance to work on your own things, smart managers. Very smart colleagues.

    Cons

    A lot of work, work more for young and without families (possible to arrange but not easy), strict and sometimes stupid procedures. Too much manager involvement sometimes, needs more trust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More empowerement, less micro-management, more honesty and transparency, quicker decisions.

    Cons

    Maybe getting more feedback would be helpful at some points during work, but normally when you ask for it you get it.

    I worked at L'Oréal as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great culture, demanding but helpful environment, great place to learn new things every day. Excellent place to learn about managing brands, category management and sales processes. Open, friendly culture that puts employee welfare at the forefront. The company clearly trusts its employees and delegation works nicely. The company also has growing market/business potential with a likely bright future.

    Cons

    Compensation relative to work-load. Everyone is extremely busy with a high workload so it's hard to get advice and help at times.
