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

    Pros

    Everyone at LOreal is Passionate for what they do. Everyday energe is unmatchable and the family feeling within your teams, despite the size of the company, is unbeatable. The products are best in class, so you work for something you beleive in. That gives you purpose.

    Cons

    Burochratic, need to like political interactions to thrive. Lacks structure.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on merit than on subjective preferences on HR topics. Invest in structuring HR processes , assesments, etc. Sponsor Masters programs.

    The new office in Hudson yards is amazing, you get great health coverage and maternity leave

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about Marketing that goes beyond the cosmetics industry. A lot of people come from other large CPG conglomerates, Advertising Agencies, Consultancies, etc. Everyone is willing to talk to you about their previous roles and how their current roles fits into L'Oreal. L'Oreal is a great place to build a career or as a stepping stone to something more fitting if L'Oreal isn't for you.

    Cons

    While the company advocates for transparency, sometimes you can't get the reasoning behind certain top-level decisions that don't make sense logically. After being here for a certain time, you will notice that everyone is very cliquey. Tends to be very gossipy around here. Not as collegial as you would think it would be for such a large company. I think the company can improve on ensuring that everyone is not... being left out and that everyone has an equal voice.

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

    Pros

    The perks of the job were nice (company store, expense accounts, etc)

    Cons

    Image matters more than substance throughout the entire company. A bunch of well-put-together airheads walking around acting catty and cliquey. If you're not French you're at a huge disadvantage and looked down upon if you work closely with colleagues or have a reporting structure up to people who are French. Capable and effective people are overlooked for promotion in lieu of people who are pretty or whose... only talent is internal political brownnosing. Marketing at this company is not REAL marketing, it's taking orders from Paris and seeing how best you can plug European products into American shelves. Marketing at L'Oreal USA = merchandising. Managers throughout the company are horrible to their employees because the tone at the top promotes such behavior. You're expected to constantly be working and personal time seemed to be considered sinful and lazy.

    Pros

    entrepreneurial environment oriented to the people working in the company friendly environment company enables you to create your own path to growth which include international opportunities

    Loads of work to be done, since it is a very entrepreneurial environment, it is possible that lines are blurred within different positions

    Advice to Management

    find better and smarter ways to promote from within, look at the talent that they currently have and their potential, this would keep current employees more satisfied and motivated

    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.
