    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great products, Summer hours, cafeteria, location
    Supply Chain Processes well developed and great systems to get work done

    Cons

    Incompetent leadership is rampant and people are often promoted even without the skills required to perform the job. Its very much a popularity contest. Career development is very weak especially outside of Sales and Marketing with very little room for advancement. The organization is very inconsistent from one Division to the next, so some people may luck up with a great manager out of a bunch of rotten apples.

    Advice to Management

    Get competent and strong leaders in place to improve the morale and performance of the supply chain teams. Address employee concerns quickly and provide feedback regarding career progression during mid year and year end reviews.
