I worked at L'Oréal as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

An eye-opener to the marketing world in a FMCG. Great exposure to events-related and trade marketing. It gives you the preview of a marketer's life at L'Oreal. It gives you an opportunity to handle social media platforms to improve your internet marketing skills.

Cons

Tight deadlines and stressful environment. However, not much of guidance was given. It was more of a this is the way 'we' want it, so just do it as it is. Not much of training but you are expected to be competent in those areas required.

Advice to Management

A key to lower turnover rate is the happiness of an employee.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic products and brands, outstanding brand development teams in DMI, consequently plenty of innovations that continuously launching on the market. Also since this is beauty company, that beauty touch is felt everywhere. In Russian office you can be promoted really fast and become marketing director in your 30 (but actually I doubt that this is a good point)

    Cons

    Russian office is suffering a lot during last 2-3 years. Marketing teams had been completely changed several times, brand managers came and just in some time leave the company, they simply rejected to work in such conditions. The main reason: lack of strategic thinking behind actions. Top management is undoubtedly very professional, but middle management and especially their attitude to their teams leave much to be desired. A good place to start career but do not recommend to come from another company

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people, start to treat staff as main company's asset. Brand and products are nothing if there is no good team behind, especially in marketing

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exellence is a must, you will learn how not to compromise and how to look for the best. Challenging enviroment enables you to cope with pressure.

    Cons

    Very individualist complany. French people lead and always will. French language is a must to grow in the company. Top Manager are excellent is few skills and are placed in places that suite those skills. The company doen not look for complete managers, just for people able to deliver in a specific area. Extremely long working days

    Advice to Management

    Focus on key priorities. Lot's of time wasted in useless details. top management quality at local level very poor
