    Pros

    I love L'Oreal! After more than ten years with the company, I am still excited to come here each and every day. L'Oreal has provided me with many different jobs, opportunities, career moves within many divisions and locations. My management has always believed in me, challenged me and is helping me to develop into a becoming a strategic leader. I am surrounded by world-class talent in R&I, creative and innovative scientists that do not settle for status quo. In addition to great benefits, we also have work flexibility, summer hours and a strong management team.

    Cons

    you will be challenged & stretched, make sure you are into that before you apply

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to employees, believing in them and taking bets!
