    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job itself has very fun responsibilities, good benefits, around average/ slightly below average pay, fun culture at shows, events and meetings, indirect inspirational type of leadership overall expressed frequently through posted quotes, perks, thank you meals etc,( I'd still want the job back more than anything if under different leadership)

    Cons

    Passion to help fix holes in routines established there seems to really threaten management. Poor communication and direction from boss to direct reports. Indecisive back and forth decision-making and vague instruction without real strategy considered leaves you having to choose between kissing up to boss or doing your best at the job. A large amount of responsibility without the power to make decisions to set... yourself up in those responsibilities. I was thrown under the bus taking blame for my boss' decisions quite a few times. Passive aggressive type leadership. Will terminate you without stating a reason. My job description changed completely from accepting job to where I ended up, without my position title changing. Unspoken expectation to "live" there in order to get things done, despite a couple break-ins making location late at night unsafe.

    Advice to Management

    "because it's always worked out/been done this way" is not a reason to continue doing something a certain way. The more efficiently a set up can be, the more efficiently many tasks can be done to create a large amount of time to do extra projects and take a business (and my strengths/weaknesses) way beyond where it is. Also, employees who are passionate are not a threat, but should inspire you. I have never cared so... much about a position in my life and felt punished for speaking up about real concerns and obstacles.
