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

    Pros

    The company has a great cafeteria with cheap prices and discounts on its products for employees.

    Cons

    I've been working here for about a year and already, I've had my manager accuse me of falsifying hours worked (I had to have other employees verify that I was present), my manager place the blame for a project's failure on me when I received no training regarding this project even though I repeatedly asked my manager for training, and quite simply a lack of communication between myself and management. I have tried to speak to my manager, but my manager is hardly in the office. Yet the second that I take my allotted 15 minute break (once per every 4 hours), my manager accuses me of slacking off on the job. I have done my best to communicate my needs via email, which strangely take days to be answered, but when I receive an email from my manager, it is an issue if I don't reply within a few hours. One day, I went to meet another colleague for the first time and I was abruptly told that my manager had spoken ill of me to other people whom I had not even met.
