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

    Pros

    Company store You get to work with very legitimate, industry leading brands

    Cons

    The cons are literally endless. Much of it boils down to culture. Read the reviews saying "stay away" and trust them. The amount of decks that go no where are endless. The data sources are questionable. Demands for decks from leadership pop up out of no where. employees are scared to leave their desks for lunch in the event management has a demand from them. when I was hired, HR told me i would be on fast... path to senior level leadership and dangled it in front of me like a carrot in front of a horse. however, they provided ZERO opportunities for growth, development, and leadership. in fact, any time i attended a training or event for my development, they forced me to leave to do some "urgent" work that could've been done by many others. they made me feel guilty for the competitive salary i effectively negotiated. leadership is flat out rude and disrespectful. i had to take a personal day to be with my father for a serious surgery he was getting. i was nagged, called, and emailed constantly, expecting me to work at his bedside. work is obviously important however that is a line that is too far to cross. management would call me at 6am demanding i send them items. management was insulting, crass, and down right unprofessional. employees are manipulative with no benefit. employees are voluntarily leaving in packs and management does not seem to care one bit. it is a revolving door. i developed serious anxiety and ptsd and saw my health deteriorate while working here. it is TOXIC.

    Advice to Management

    i really don't have any. you are set in your ways and have built a culture of toxicity and enjoying the misery of your employees. someone from HR will probably write some BS note about how they are changing. you are not changing. you are hell.

    Pros

    Big Company Lots of opportunity Very Competitive Wage Excellent Benefits Brand Recognition

    Cons

    Not as nimble since so large Newly acquired companies may not be used to such a large global organization L'Oréal may not understand fully some of the companies they acquire before they acquire them and this makes transitions/change tough at times.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, listen, listen Some of the best ideas can come from frontline employees especially ones who have been working on the frontlines of companies L'Oréal may have just acquired. It's OK to show interest in what the lower level employees have to say. In fact, it is vital for change and there is a lot of that at any company especially one as global as L'Oréal.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits, moderately Young workforce (for the most part) modern office, looks good on resume, exciting portfolio of brands, many locations around the world,

    Meeting-heavy culture, still very slow to innovate in many areas, too many meetings and preparation for visits for bigwigs coming from France

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people to have a life more, take time off, celebrate successes, recognize teams publicly, seek diversity, convert consultant workforce to permanent

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company has prestigious brands, marketing and manufacturing capability, shows commitment in sustainability and environmentally friendly products. R&D is one of the biggest in the industry.

    Cons

    The marketing mentality takes over the research spirit and consequently hinders innovation. The leadership style within the company is very top-down and too autocratic. A significant portion of the workforce tends to coast and nothing is being done to address it. The meeting etiquette leaves a lot to be desired (late start, attendees showing up late, unclear goals).

    Advice to Management

    Create a performance-base company culture, give more autonomy to local teams, balance the roles between R&D and marketing
