    #1 beauty company
    Fast paced, there are opportunities to move and grow
    Great benefits package
    Great employee perks
    Mobility exposure

    Cons

    French management style still lingers in the air (authoritarian and demanding) but slowly starting to change with implementation of SMART. There needs to be more awareness of bad working behaviors and they need to be called out without fear of retribution.
