    I have been working at L'Oréal for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The organization really values your touch bases and check ins with your progress. You can truly own your destiny. I started out as an assistant store manager in a small retail division and am now, 5 years later, working my way onto a corporate management role with our Professional Products Division. Work hard, be a good person, and own your progress... It's all part of the entrepreneurial spirit of L'Oreal.

    Cons

    Things are constantly changing. If you are going to work for a company that has stayed relevant and always topped the industry in innovation, you need to be comfortable with this. At times, it can be frustrating to work on an initiative to have it scrapped because of different initiatives, but it is part of the big picture with L'Oreal.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value hard work and strong principles. Look at a better compensation structure that is not solely focused around previous compensation and rather the requirements of the role and where the role fits in relation to other roles and compensation structures.

    Pros

    The company invests heavily in personal career development and growth within. The diversity of talent, creativity, and experience makes L'Oreal an always interesting and engaging place to create and develop.

    Cons

    The expectation at Loreal is that you are always prepared and ready to "fight" for your opinion. This is something to learn from and emulate, but at times, the work can feel combative as ideas are often laced with emotion given the nature of the work.

    Thank you so much for your great insights. One couldn’t have described L’Oréal better. Indeed, we set ourselves ridiculous goals. We hit the tightest deadlines. We achieve amazing results. We stumble. We get back up again. But we never do any of it alone. Our diversity is our ...

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at L'Oréal for more than a year

    Pros

    You get free goods and have a decent level of autonomy. If you have a good manager, which is hard to come by, you can do great things and are protected from the negative attitudes of never being good enough. But that just means your manager is most likely taking the hit instead of you. The divisions are better to work for out of the corp. supply chain office.

    Cons

    It's too French. You only get promoted if you're in the "club" and have networked perfectly if you're American. Leadership is non-existent. Nothing is good enough, and expectations set are unrealistic. You are treated as a commodity if your title is below Director.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your people like they are expendable. Remove the terrible French management and run the Purchasing Department with real leadership. Promote those who deserve it, not just the French employees, and remember it's L'OREAL USA, not Paris.
