    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.

    Please re-invent the culture. It starts from above!

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of free products Holiday leave

    Cons

    Where to start... Very poor management, I had never seen so unprofessional managers (not fair, not knowledgeable, speaking to staff in extremely rude manners,...) Very childish environment, people spend their time gossiping Highly disorganised, seems like it is in the company DNA There is no culture of being good at your work and efficient it is all about showing your passion and staying endless hours at your desk... and working all the time then you get promoted even if you are bad

    Advice to Management

    Hire good and fair managers you should finally see the staff turn over going down...

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Health benefits, holidays, diverse culture and backgrounds, some great employees

    Cons

    Poor management, no upward mobility, poor work recognition, no support from management. High rate of turnover and FMLA due to high-stress work environment and micromanaging. Some managers are disrespectful and will call you out in front of everybody instead of using a private room. Lately, the environment became toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to know your employees and treat everyone equally. Publicly reward and recognize hard work. Show your employees they matter and they’ll do their best work for you.

    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits Starting salaries are competitive to excellent if you are recruited from outside the company. They want to bring in great people. Wonderful teammates Annual innovation contests

    Cons

    Ops and R&I leadership are a mixed bag in terms of professionalism and ethics -management can be vindictive and short sighted The office spaces in Clark are outdated and cramped IT is way behind in technology and support Salary raises and increases are low - they lose a lot of great people... Temp and Co-op culture. Less and less full-time employees

    Advice to Management

    Bring back professionalism to the company - Please improve our infrastructure, working space, IT... Give us full-time employees that can manage projects. It will pay off in the long run.

    Pros

    The benefits, the network you create, strong brand=job security

    If you're on the creative side, it can be frustrating at times. They don't take a lot of risks. But the good outweighs the bad.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your direct reports (one on ones) more frequently

    Pros

    It's an attractive brand where you get exposure to alot of different people and challenges. You will get the opportunity to do as much as you are capable of. Pay was competitive.

    Cons

    Employee survey results are getting worse, increase in low value work, poor systems, unfair and uneven promotions, cronyism, nepotism, lack of vision of senior leadership, inability to act, culture of downward pressure, lifetime employees only know how to manage by force and will never leave. I worked more here than any job before and got less reward than anywhere before. They take complaints about the culture as an... example that people aren't "cut out" for it and refuse to actually make improvements to it
