    Pros

    Attractive salaries for recruiting experienced professionals
    Good benefits
    Some outstanding people and teams
    Great opportunity to change positions

    Cons

    A Marketing company from top to bottom. Selling yourself and face time is more important than what you do, and if you are savvy at this you will go far. L'Oreal is not an innovative company, but is really, really great at selling the world that they are.
    Bleak IT infrastructure
    Very poor increases once you are in the system
    Toxic/Treacherous Ops and R&I cultures
    Layers and layers of international management...

    Advice to Management

    Get help with reworking your culture, both local and abroad. There is only so much storytelling you can do about how the company has improved, and people aren't buying it.

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Product discount

    ability to travel

    You will learn a lot

    Free food around the office at least once a week

    Office looks dull but is expected to receive a makeover in 2017 (the photos on LinkedIn look great)

    Open collaboration

    Lots of team building activities (at times it’s just a distraction because you have so much work to do). However it temporarily relieves the stress.

    Great for college graduates or someone entering corporate America for the first time.

    Cons

    No work life balance

    Overworked

    Salary is great until you realize you’re doing 1.5-2 people’s jobs

    Most managers and directors are extremely smart but are not suitable for leadership

    Not a good fit for experienced professionals

    Advice to Management

    Leadership teams need to be trained on how to delegate responsibilities.

    Listen to employees when they complain about workload. Stop saying “work smarter” that line is old.

    Hire management consultants to figure out why this place is a revolving door for experienced professionals.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A lot of training ops for new employees

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance. Long hours and terrible raises for all of the projects you are expected to manage. I have been here over 9 years and the salaries for the new employees who come and go after 2/3 years are better than what I’m making after my long hours and years of dedication Getting tired of broken promises of more money that never seems to
    Make it into my paycheck. 1.5% yearly raise just ya colutting it anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Pay those employees what they deserve for the long hours and dedication they have shown LOreal through the years. Bring in
    More headcount to help us who are overwhelmed. Share the wealth.
