    I have been working at L'Oréal (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The organization really values your touch bases and check ins with your progress. You can truly own your destiny. I started out as an assistant store manager in a small retail division and am now, 5 years later, working my way onto a corporate management role with our Professional Products Division. Work hard, be a good person, and own your progress... It's all part of the entrepreneurial spirit of L'Oreal.

    Cons

    Things are constantly changing. If you are going to work for a company that has stayed relevant and always topped the industry in innovation, you need to be comfortable with this. At times, it can be frustrating to work on an initiative to have it scrapped because of different initiatives, but it is part of the big picture with L'Oreal.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value hard work and strong principles. Look at a better compensation structure that is not solely focused around previous compensation and rather the requirements of the role and where the role fits in relation to other roles and compensation structures.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    The compensation is very competitive and the company store is a great perk.
    Health benefits are great and they match a 401k up to a certain %
    Flexible with the ability to work from home one day a week

    Cons

    The company is going through a transformation in IT which is placing stress on employees. All job posting for IT have VUCA in the dimensions of the job
    Management dwells on only the Negative
    Senior management states there is a need for culture change. They themselves can't change but for a very short period of time until the true colors come out again

    Advice to Management

    Show your loyal employees you value them by promoting and giving opportunities to people who have been in the company over hiring from the outside.

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

    Pros

    It is a great company to grow at - they encourage their employees to push themselves to move to higher roles after about 2 years in a position.
    The compensation is very competitive and the company store is a great perk.
    Health benefits are great and they match a 401k up to a certain %

    Cons

    Time off is average - every 5 years or so another 5 days are added.
    Work life balance can be a struggle (but if you are non-exempt and can get overtime, they make sure you are paid for that)
