    I have been working at L'Oréal as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was interning during the summer. The work environment was pretty nice and organized, plus varies community event such as summer bbq or volunteering events. Work-life balance was also pretty well, steady 8:30 am - 5 pm including lunch break. A plus is the on-site store, which employees can use discounts there.

    Cons

    The team was a bit cold... I once even saw two full-time employees arguing with each other in the work area.... Also typical French company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try to spend more time with employees rather than sitting in or off the office all day.

    I worked at L'Oréal as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours, summer Fridays, company store on-site, cafeteria . Newest technology to work with. Lots of inventory to assist clients with

    As a contractor some things were not available since we are not "real employees"
