    Approves of CEO

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn and grow. Generous training program and benefits. Great colleagues

    Cons

    Very fast pace. Poor work life balance. Stressful

    Advice to Management

    Management encourages work life balance but feels like the company strategy is to hire young professionals who will work very had and then replace them with more of the same when they resign. Improve employee "retention".

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, as well as brand recognition.

    Cons

    Work life balance is horrible. The culture itself is where the true problems begin. The employees have either worked for L’Oreal their whole career or do not even last a year. To say turnover is problem is an understatement. HR allows people to be bullied and treated poorly and everyone uses the excuse of “that’s just the L’Oreal way”. My advice would be if you even slightly care about spending time with your... family or you care about your mental health, do not work here.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Health benefits, free goods, summer Fridays

    Cons

    There is a perfectionist culture so you can’t make mistakes or you will be bullied and blamed. There is fear of making mistakes so you do all your best to try to avoid them or otherwise management will blame you and have zero tolerance. Too many emails late at night from your bosses and toxic environment. I would not recommend this place to anyone that wants a work life balance or just period enjoy coming to working.... People are very competitive and not helpful. There is no training and it’s either sink or swim mentality.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There no longer are pros to this work environment except the people who try to keep you sane under the unrealistic expectations from upper management

    Cons

    1. Unrealistic workload 2. Managers with no empathy or regard to your home life 3. Directors who fail as leaders, who imply that working less than 12 hours per is worthy of punishment 4. Slave like culture 5. No work life balance - no matter how much their propaganda says there is 6. Bullies in the work force 7. Taking shortcuts and risks on a regular will eventually lead to down fall

    Advice to Management

    Instead of training us on resilience and jumping to conclusions. Treat employees with care and respect. You go home to your family on time - why can’t your employees do the same. Hire sufficient staffing Fire directors who are fake leaders or treat their employees like slaves or bully or belittle until an employee is in tears Move the people who deserve promotions instead of fueling “gossip” to keep them in a... position they’re good in. Defend your employees Trust your employees (These are all complaints that have already been taken to HR repeatedly by numerous of employees to no avail) Or they Will walk
