    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    As someone passionate in the role and the industry, I love that the work is challenging and fulfilling - you will learn new things, drive projects, develop your skills in the ever-changing landscape, and have a chance to make an impact.

    Beyond that, the company is genuine in its desire to constantly provide good environment and care for employees.
    I had heard negative things before joining the company, but after being here for some time, I think that is a thing of the past.
    The management has changed, the culture has evolved, there is a real effort to drive employee engagement, and the benefits such as flexibility to work-from-home sweeten the experience.
    I also greatly appreciate that the company is socially and environmentally conscious.

    Cons

    Not a con per se, but it is fast-paced (as with all FMCGs).
    Also, in such a big company with more than 20 brands, there is still a tendency for some to operate in silo.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, as long as the company keeps its vision and its heart for consumers and employees, the results will definitely show

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, workspace, and energy at the new Hudson Yards office. Definitely a sink or swim environment; fast paced and exciting.

    Cons

    Can be political and junior employees can sometimes be left out when big meetings come around, but that is one a team by team basis.

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits, moderately
    Young workforce (for the most part) modern office, looks good on resume, exciting portfolio of brands, many locations around the world,

    Cons

    Meeting-heavy culture, still very slow to innovate in many areas, too many meetings and preparation for visits for bigwigs coming from France

    Encourage people to have a life more, take time off, celebrate successes, recognize teams publicly, seek diversity, convert consultant workforce to permanent
