    I have been working at L'Oréal USA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, friendly and accommodating staff and management. Summer hours were wonderful and work expectations were reasonable.

    Cons

    The work environment was dark, gloomy and freezing. Most of the full-time employees were stressed out about work expectations and deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more staff to ease up work expectations on the employees. It will generate more efficient productivity and improve employee moral.

    Pros

    Learn a lot about the industry, you sometimes get the chance to see upper management at work.

    Benefits and compensation are very good for entey level

    Cons

    Fast paced, hectic, lack of transparency between departments, work/life balance is poor (even though hr likes to say the company loves to support all your passions).

    Depending on the position, hours can be long, and learning takes place on the job. If you have other interests or need more one on one time to learn, this place nay ne difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An actual training period, more staff in departments to lighten load, better work/life balance
