    Pros

    Benefits, best I've seen. Time off. Competitive pay
    Your hard will show when they look at how many scans you did within your shift.

    Cons

    Same thing everyday, nothing changes. Pay raises aren't much. Maybe .03% Lunch is only 30mins with two 10 min breaks. That's it when it comes to breaks.

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, two bonus - corporate and divisional, 401k, vacation, half Friday's during summer months, free goods from corporate store that carries products from majority of divisions

    Cons

    Sink or swim mentally, marketing driven with no regard to creative departments contribution - an idea is only as good as its execution which is done by creative, creative is regarded as a service department working for marketing versus team mentality, high turn-over rate, marketing departments promote regularly and easily giving junior employees too much responsibility, HR protects upper management and sabotages everyone below, senior positions held by life-long antiquated employees who are not up to speed or current in thinking, lacks overall communication from top down creating last minute re-work and unnecessary long hours

    Advice to Management

    Need leadership teams that are aligned with strong communication skills as groups work in silos creating unnecessary work and long hours

    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)
