    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    L'Oreal USA is not for everyone. Let me start with that... But if you enjoy working in an environment that is passionate about winning and where you can bring any idea to the table then this company is for you. Now the challenge is how you get it done....just like anywhere else. But L'Oreal is not an overly process driven company overall. What I love is that you can create your own and there are great people who are willing to help. This company truly embraces diversity and inclusion. No one size fits all model here.

    Cons

    L'Oreal has thrived all these years with great people. However, in this digital age it's time to balance it out with better systems and tools. Too manual for a company this size.

    Advice to Management

    Seeing a lot of positive change in work flexibility with the renovations at The Hub. It is crucial we continue to find flexible work options across all LUSA locations to not only compete but go beyond our competition.

    My mom is a business owner of Eco Green Beauty SPA so its great to have family business, but I want to do remote work.

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    Free products, good health benefits, sexy industry, name recognition of company

    Cons

    People are promoted and given direct reports based on personal, cut-throat performance rather than leadership & managerial experience. Little emphasis on training to improve people development skills. This results in a web of terrible managers across the organization and miserable teams who have little opportunity to grow and excel. There's a reason so few people last more than a few years here.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your lower and mid-level employees. Train all people managers and let go the ones that can't improve. Stop protecting people based on their years at the company. You're hurting everyone as a result.

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    L’Oreal has over 35 brands and many corporate functions to drive the world’s leading beauty company. From these many sources comes an incredible amount of IT demand. Sometimes it can be daunting, but it also extremely exciting and diverse. The opportunity to learn and grow is outstanding. The company can be aggressive with Ita IT aspirations, creating an environment where you will always be challenged.

    Cons

    No cons to add.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, generous vacation, PTO and holiday days.

    Cons

    Little to no room for advancement in this location. Actual accounting work is minimal, majority of accounting analysis is done in NJ by the finance team.

    Advice to Management

    Let up on the micromanaging and stop focusing only on the small mistakes that employees make. Give some positive feedback and not just negative feedback.

    Pros

    Pension, salary, bonus, profit sharing, employee stock program, flexibility...

    Cons

    There is somewhat of a 'cool kids' get fast tracked feel to the promotion structure - not necessarily based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    nothing of note - keep on keepin' on.
