I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (More than 5 years)

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,

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You'll meet extremely smart people and build an extensive network

    Cons

    Forget work/life balance in any form. Also, extremely political and bureaucratic

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people - give them the level of human resources to get the job done and be able to think strategically as well. You've cut HR way too much over the last 3 years
