    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has prestigious brands, marketing and manufacturing capability, shows commitment in sustainability and environmentally friendly products. R&D is one of the biggest in the industry.

    Cons

    The marketing mentality takes over the research spirit and consequently hinders innovation. The leadership style within the company is very top-down and too autocratic. A significant portion of the workforce tends to coast and nothing is being done to address it. The meeting etiquette leaves a lot to be desired (late start, attendees showing up late, unclear goals).

    Advice to Management

    Create a performance-base company culture, give more autonomy to local teams, balance the roles between R&D and marketing
