    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    L'Oreal USA represents the best and the brightest of our society. It is a classically diversified company with a plethora of products, positions, plans and people! There is always a new project going on and they are widely respected in their industry, strive to make the work experience a great event for all of their employees, and work to attain a great work like balance for everyone. They try to keep the door open to fresh talent and make room for them. Many of the employees become long term employees and are very proud of their work longevity.

    Cons

    The quarter year management shifts, rearrange everything and upset the apple cart when they occur approximately every 4 years or so. Many of the long time employees are cycled out and new younger employees are cycled in. With that many long term employees, this is truly a tough place to say goodbye to.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the needs of the loyal and dedicated long term seniour employees as you court new younger talent. Both have many assets.

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful office, some nice co workers, perks. Good insurance all around. Good induction but poor execution after. Good pay. Higher than norm.

    Cons

    No communication from higher management. Says you have earned days off but gets in trouble for using them. Can be let go from your position with no warning and escorted out as if you're a criminal.

    Advice to Management

    When someone asks for feedback on their performance - give it. Don't fake nice and then fire them.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good job security.

    Cons

    Marketing has too much influence in the scientific testing process which affects the quality of testing results. So many meetings that it can be hard to get work done. Not much room for growth as an objective scientist. Measuring parameters that are almost completely subjective, like 'beauty', 'radiance' etc is an impossible task, which leaves no way to objectively determine how good the product is. Plenty of brown nosing.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the amount of meetings you hold with your core group.
