I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Amazing benefits - company car, 3 weeks vacation, free and discounted product, worked from home (for field teams), summer hours (for corporate office)

Lots of learning and training opportunities. Generally nice and supportive people.

Cons

Very cut throat, competitive environment. It wasn't as big of a deal in my position, but for account managers sales meetings are a nightmare. You can expect to get called out and quizzed on your numbers. Very poor work/life balance

Few opportunities outside of NY/NJ

Attitude by management. Former President of our division was a total diva. Top management of L'Oreal USA is also always brought in from France.

Advice to Management

Lose the attitude, create a more team oriented environment.
