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

    Pros

    I had not opportunity to find any pros

    Cons

    Unprofessional and scandalous conduct of mid-management in interviewing and pre-employment negotiating process.

    Advice to Management

    Mid-managers and HR partners shoud be designated or promoted to their positions only when they are enough mature and experienced. Childish manners just ruin the L’Oreal reputation.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a great work life balance. The employee demographic is young and energetic. The office is in a great location. The pay is good. Everyone is very friendly.

    Cons

    The grad scheme can seem a little aimless when compared to the internship. This is due to the grad scheme being project based and the internship being operational. So the quality of the scheme depends on the quality of the project given. As is life.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps allow graduates to be operational for a while before taking on projects as it can be difficult to take on a project when you do not yet understand the operation.

    Pros

    Great beauty perks, good training and investment in employees. Strong work ethics and rules.

    Cons

    HR could consider prospective applicants thoroughly before sending out rejection emails

    Advice to Management

    Try giving former L'Oréal agency workers a chance for an interview when applying directly to L'Oréal.

    I worked at L'Oréal as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced, lots of responsibility, great networking opportunity, great company values, graduate HR department are super professional and helpful, staff shop has really great discounts

    Cons

    The fast paced nature means that it can seem chaotic and disorganised. Work eats into personal life - expected to work very long hours

    Advice to Management

    HR are very approachable and professional. Unfortunately my manager had not planned for my arrival which wasted a lot of time as I didn't have my first 'induction' with my manager until my 3rd week of a 10 week internship. Overall I loved the atmosphere of the company - great people and very competitive environment. The sense of hierarchy is flexible - for example, as in intern I made a lot of contacts with people across the business from different roles and levels of experience who I am still in touch with. I would love to return to L'Oréal one day.
