Jean-Paul Agon, Chairman and CEO 

In L’Oréal's people-centered culture, the diversity of the teams is one of the success factors.

    I worked at L'Oréal USA full-time (More than 5 years)


    Excellent culture of development with top notch training programs, as they are passionate about "talent", stretch assignments, above average people managers who encourage personal development, tuition reimbursement, international assignments, work with extremely talented people from all over the world, products and brand are iconic and known globally, marketers are top notch, experience here is good for career growth and looks good on the resume, excellent place to launch your career (post UG or MBA), especially in brand marketing, great product perks.


    Always seemed like you needed a "French connection", a top 3 Ivy League degree, or have worked at Goldman or Google prior to garner special respect and move up the ladder quickly. Extremely elitist company. You must "look" the part as well. Marketing environment is a very competitive, tournament theory environment. Long hours, limited work-life balance in the New York locations, much better if you work at the New Jersey campus. Pay is average for the industry. A great place to work and gain experience in your 20's to early 30's, not sure beyond that as pace is frenetic, but never boring!

    Interview was with HR and was pretty standard. Basic questions were asked regarding resume (experience in general, in classroom, prior co-ops/internships). Asked whether relocation was a possibility and if I would be willing to relocate.
