    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere in the office Berkeley heights office is pretty new and very spacious Great perks for full time employees, especially in the corporate store Shuttle provided to NY office Summer hours and casual fridays

    Cons

    Office is in remote location in mid jersey Traffic to office is sometimes heavy Train station is not close to office Departments tend to socialize within

    Advice to Management

    Management works very well with employees, since there are not too many levels of delegation witching the company. Employee's are trusted to succeed in projects and are not micro-managed.

    Pros

    Fantastic people & products Really can rotate functionally which is very rare in corporate America Best benefits anywhere Highly compensated - especially upper levels Sense of purpose, belief in the company, pride when telling people it's L'Oreal

    Cons

    Inefficient in a lot of aspects - still lots of room to make things work faster and smoother IT is nowhere close to cutting edge More work than there are people

    Advice to Management

    People development needs to be part of the culture...saying we are doing it and doing it are two different things; better work-life balance could really help retain great talent...there's nothing wrong with working remotely or from home if the work force is working,

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly, the work style is very professional, and there is a true culture of excellence. I also appreciate the talent diversity. There's a strong culture of entrepreneurship. Individuals can really shape their own job to a certain degree.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Very dynamic company. Great learning experience. Interns get a lot of responsibility and autonomy, which increases learning. Besides, everyone is very friendly and helpful not just within teams but also beyond brands and sectors.

    Cons

    Depending on for which team you work for there might be a lot of pressure and really high expectations, which I personally don't mind but for some people this might not be the right environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Reward interns for their hard work. Communicate goals and achievement more clearly for motivation. Interact more with interns. However, in general I have to say that I was very satisfied with the Management team at L'Oréal.
