    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...

    Pros

    Great benefits, workspace, and energy at the new Hudson Yards office. Definitely a sink or swim environment; fast paced and exciting.

    Cons

    Can be political and junior employees can sometimes be left out when big meetings come around, but that is one a team by team basis.

    I worked at L'Oréal for less than a year

    Pros

    Great training ground for marketing. Worked on exciting and interesting projects for top management as an entry level employee. You also get half off at the company store!

    Cons

    Lots of miscommunication within team. People actually try to sabotage you - extremely competitive and cut-threat culture. I caught colleagues crying in the bathroom... something "evil" grows here (quoted by a colleague.)

    Advice to Management

    Just because senior employees say one thing, doesn't necessarily mean it's right. Entry level employees and interns aren't scapegoats - instead of putting the blame on them, it would be beneficial to take their feedback into account. The L'Oreal culture doesn't have to make you a bitter and angry person - it can be a great working environment but a lot of changes have to be made internally.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 3 years

    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

    Cons

    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.

    60 hour work weeks - you spend your days in meetings and are expected to work late nights, weekends, holidays, and vacations to get everything done.

    I was told this year that one of my projects was one of the most strategically important initiatives of the company but yet I only received a 2% increase?
