    I have been working at L'Oréal (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    L`Oreal is a place where you can learn a tremendous amount
    You eat what you cook = you work hard, you will get rewarded
    The people are incredible, kind and intelligent and make coming into work a pleasure
    The diversity of backgrounds create a inclusive atmosphere
    The professional division is a great place to learn, strive and cooperate (my favorite division)

    Cons

    Improvement in integration in role
    Credit should be given where credit is due ;)

    Advice to Management

    Reward the managers who develop their teams and develop individuals (yes its about the numbers but its about people too)

    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

    Pros

    If you want space to move, autonomy, freedom and big learning opportunities then L'Oréal is the place for you. You genuinely get out what you put in. It's fast-paced and high-energy and you're surrounded by highly intelligent and inspiring people to help you make it happen. Every year at L'Oréal feels like five years of learning that you'd get elsewhere. The learning & development is world class too, with an array of apps, MOOCs and more to keep you at the cutting edge.

    Cons

    There can be a bit of an old school management style in certain pockets, but they're putting huge amounts of effort into changing this

    Advice to Management

    In the context of change and improvement, don't lose the essence of what makes us L'Oréal!
