    Pros

    Long term career and strong brands

    Cons

    Compensation still lagging for women.Still very French male environment. This doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon. After many years with the company I am not fighting it anymore. I don't think that I will achieve the levels of the white males here.

    Advice to Management

    Respect Americans and people of all nationalities and demonstrate that in your words and actions.

    Pros

    Working at L'Oreal will find you in a great environment, very diverse with numerous nationalities. There are opportunities to move in the company and generally a lot of trainings and tools to develop. It feels like you are heard as an employee and your opinion matters.

    Cons

    Not as many as the pros, but it can feel a bit bureaucratic, a lot of documentation. The workload can be overwhelming sometimes and there is a lot of pressure from all the stakeholders. Unfortunately the salaries are not great either.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to retain the good people!

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

    Pros

    Great pay. Travel opportunity but only if you’re in a certain division. Free products. Use a working day to give back to the community company wide.

    Cons

    Lack of future direction. French Management that was harsh or unrealistic on expectations. Because of this, different managers were stressed out. You’re working around the clock because the work doesn’t stop. Poor training, so there really left huge gray areas on what topics needed to be mastered before taking on product management. Too many manual processes with no SOP, so relying on someone’s expertise was the only way to understand something. Suppliers hated the acquisitions that they take on because of ridiculous standards. Too many acquisitions in a short time period so no one gets fully adjusted. Lies that no one’s jobs are at stake but they very much fire people more than they liked to admit. This also contributed to Management’s level of stress with high turnover, and no respect for employees with personal issues. Was never given the opportunity to utilize my Vacation days. Need to make a full personality assessment on all individuals because there were some people that were very difficult to work with unless you escalated.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with dignity and respect. Stop lying to the masses in regards to job security then go back on your word. Start adopting some American principles if this is going to reside in USA. Create a formal onboarding program with job specific training on tools and processes. Break status quo around areas “it’s-always-been-done-that-way”. Start fully assessing if certain individuals are truly competent to lead in roles that decipher the career of others. Need better HR alignment and implement new advocates to be the voice of the workplace
