    Pros

    Incredible growth opportunities, entrepreneurial spirit, systematic personal development program, impressive benefits, great work environment.

    Cons

    It's a very dynamic company, with a lots of acquisitions but also selling companies, brands and business units. You might be doing great in a business unit and will find out that was sold and now you work in a different environment. The top jobs are reserved for French executives (especially in Finance, as CFOs) or to a very small group of individuals.

    Advice to Management

    A dynamic company is a delight to work for, but the thinking about loyal employees overseas will be good from time to time when it's time to dispose a company. It's not just the French employees that matter, but the rest of them too. At the end, it's a global company. With Mr. Patrick Ricard (RIP) the company was very supportive of their global employees, not with Mr. Pringuet, it seems like the other way around.

    Pros

    Great company incentives. Awesome atmosphere, coworkers are friendly, people just know how to stay in there work space and not interfere with anyone else's

    Cons

    Computer platforms need to be updated. The software is not up to date, if everyones laptop and desktop work more accurate, the work would be completed more efficient.

    Advice to Management

    Takes a very long time due to the position being available, the only way a person can move up is by gaining the experience on duty and waiting for someone to retire or give up there management position.
