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

    Pros

    The job itself has very fun responsibilities, good benefits, around average/ slightly below average pay, fun culture at shows, events and meetings, indirect inspirational type of leadership overall expressed frequently through posted quotes, perks, thank you meals etc,( I'd still want the job back more than anything if under different leadership)

    Cons

    Passion to help fix holes in routines established there seems to really threaten management. Poor communication and direction from boss to direct reports. Indecisive back and forth decision-making and vague instruction without real strategy considered leaves you having to choose between kissing up to boss or doing your best at the job. A large amount of responsibility without the power to make decisions to set yourself...

    Advice to Management

    "because it's always worked out/been done this way" is not a reason to continue doing something a certain way. The more efficiently a set up can be, the more efficiently many tasks can be done to create a large amount of time to do extra projects and take a business (and my strengths/weaknesses) way beyond where it is. Also, employees who are passionate are not a threat, but should inspire you. I have never cared so much...

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

    Pros

    None I can thing of or maybe it's the measly free product you get each month.

    Cons

    Everyone under a VP is basically the same level. Everyone cranks out mindless decks ALL DAY LONG. It's bizzare. Truly. I mean think decks with over 1,000 slides where only 10-15 slides are actually shown. Worst company I have ever worked for hands down. It's mostly former bankers who enjoy the punishment of mindless decks since they get to go home at 10pm as opposed to 3 am. Just don't. Skip this one.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip.
