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

    Pros

    I liked working in a fast paced environment for one of the market leaders. Most people are higly qualified and very competitive. It is a relatively efficient organization.

    Cons

    The athmosphere is terrible with a competitiveness that has reached an all time level and thus people are not really collaborating. It can either boost you or truly demotivate you.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Name recognition, job duties, challenging, creative, large company, trips, working with talented people, discount on products.

    Cons

    When I was hired the company was going through a major overhaul. People were being hired and fired and positions combined. I was excited to have the job until I found out I would not recieve proper training. It was fine at first for I am a fast learner but since the girl who had my position previously had left on bad terms she left a lot of unfinished business that, naturally, my boss decided to blame on me since she no longer had her previous employee to blame. I took it in stride until my boss tried to not pay be for overtime. I had to wait an entire month to recieve my money and was fired for even requesting it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are not always right! What a surprise. People are hired to help you, allow them to do their jobs. Train when necessary. Relax!

    Pros

    new products, ever changing, sponsors events

    Cons

    too much stress, too demanding, no appreciation for staff, no organization, very poorly run, have a huge turn over rate, run by men, very few females in upper management in all of LOreal, not just Canada, gets environmental awards & yet fills landfills with discarded, unused signage by the ton, should spend more on operational side rather than marketing, cut back on the millions for celebrity endorsements, profitable & yet cuts staff, so concerned with beating P&G that they have lost sight of their own business, in a sad state & declining rapidly

    I worked at L'Oréal part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stays on top of latest trends, decent benefits, good hours

    Cons

    Not a company I saw myself staying at for much longer than a year. This doesn't seem like a good place to build a long-term career. Sales goals were set so high that you were set up to fail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and keep them informed.
