    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 worked at L'Oréal

    Pros

    A good experience in marketing. Very insightful since the product manager holds a strategic position with very high responsibilities.

    Cons

    As an intern, you will never get to present your work in front of someone ranked higher than you direct supervisor. You will get the feeling that you're working a lot and that your ideas are sometimes worth being heard, but eventually they will be mold into the L'Oréal stereotypes. Not a great company if your goal is to express your creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks. Why spending so much money on advertising/design/communication agencies if your last call is always what is expected ?

    I worked at L'Oréal for less than a year

    Pros

    - Intern culture is really strong. Many interns and recent graduates help to create a youthful, energetic working environment. If joining in summer plenty of events to go to. - Great office benefits, especially staff discount on L'Oreal products

    Cons

    Work wasn't all that challenging, little responsobility aside from pulling data/ handing over your work for senior usage. HR seemed to be in a bit of a mess, although I had no direct experience of this

    Advice to Management

    Greater responsibility in decision making for interns would be appreciated. Also for those that joined in winter, making sure more events were on for them to integrate would probably be welcomed.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    Innovation machine, bright people, hard workers. Management is good, products are fantastic. If you want to take ownership and bring things to life, anything is possible at L'Oreal. There are a lot of truly dynamic thinkers. No one is afraid of taking risks on new ideas.

    Cons

    French management overly involved, many useless meetings with management that are not driving the P&L. If you have one of the HR people who is more into their own self promotion and sorority-clique status, you are in trouble. This company is all about hard work, which is fine, but the upside is missing. Employees don't receive pay for performance or even explanations about what their future could hold...time to... really think about whether employee retention matters.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on better employee rewards for performance. While the workforce is female,where is the female management? Even in non-P&L positions there is a lack of diversity.
