    Pros

    Good colleagues, everyone is very friendly, good direct management, company provides excellent benefits including an employee shuttle to NY satellite HQ in New Jersey, abiltity to work from home when needed plus yearly bonus and profit sharing

    Cons

    Many in the New York headquarters regard the New Jersey satellite headquarters as "those people out in the boonies" and carry that attitude in their decision making.

    Pros

    The people in their positions that have been their a while have a wealth of technical and work experience to share
    You are given a workload that is difficult to manage, but gives you experience that you rarely receive elsewhere in that time period
    You are given autonomy for your projects until something goes wrong
    the amount of holidays and work from home days are very helpful
    Benefits are very good

    Cons

    Your workload has a tendency to get very heavy the better you perform.
    Raises prior to becoming a manger are insignificant
    While it won't be directly said, being french is definitely a plus
    Marketing rules the world and you will know that pretty quickly as you better become good at CYA
    Advancement is ultimately in the hands of 3 levels above you who don't interact with you day to day. I

    Pros

    The company is filled with talented people. You will work really hard, but you will grow and learn a lot. The pace is very quick, so if you are not organized, don't have a strong work ethic or don't want to long hours you will not be happy here. That being said, the company allows you to bring ideas to the table and run with them to see if they will work. Great company. I love working here.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by if you are a field employee who is not willing to more. Work life balance can be difficult as everything is urgent and important and it never stops!!


  9. Excellent experience in so many regards. Creative, inspiring and passionate.

    Pros

    People, people, people. Creative company with great passion. Room to be who you are. Room to fail and you are still valued.

    Cons

    Work life balance. Part time job without penalty of losing benefits a huge point of dissatisfaction. Work from home policy and flexible options in the stone age. Lack of clarity re: future progression and movement into next roles a big negative.

    Advice to Management

    Improve flexibility options for working remotely. Work life balance still a huge opportunity for L'Oreal. Need for greater clarity on promotions, leadership opportunities and promotions!

    Pros

    Fun and engaging events for interns. Chance to meet upper management. Free beauty products and discounts at company store. Given work that is atleast somewhat tied to the business.

    Cons

    Lack of clear expectations communicated by management makes daily work a guessing game. Success in the program depends largely on being lucky enough to be placed with an experienced and competent manager.

    Its a huge established cog company, so processes are somewhat archaic and more innovative marketing practices are rejected. Seemed very behind on digital marketing practices and I question how this will affect the business ten years down the line.

    Not a culture that promotes intelligent self starters. Success here appeared to be largely a popularity contest, where the judges were highly bubbly ex sorority girls from bottom feeder universities. Found it to be highly cliquey, although with some good people as well.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency about expectations is needed between managers and interns
