    I have been working at L'Oréal (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    L`Oreal is a place where you can learn a tremendous amount
    You eat what you cook = you work hard, you will get rewarded
    The people are incredible, kind and intelligent and make coming into work a pleasure
    The diversity of backgrounds create a inclusive atmosphere
    The professional division is a great place to learn, strive and cooperate (my favorite division)

    Cons

    Improvement in integration in role
    Credit should be given where credit is due ;)

    Advice to Management

    Reward the managers who develop their teams and develop individuals (yes its about the numbers but its about people too)

    Pros

    Benefits, best I've seen. Time off. Competitive pay
    Your hard will show when they look at how many scans you did within your shift.

    Cons

    Same thing everyday, nothing changes. Pay raises aren't much. Maybe .03% Lunch is only 30mins with two 10 min breaks. That's it when it comes to breaks.
