    I have been working at L'Oréal

    Pros

    Great product perks. Highly ethical company to work for & leader in technology. All roles allow independent thinking to achieve tasks and hold large responsibilities that would not be afforded at other companies.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is awful. Peers and management too busy to reflect on projects delivered and recognise a job well done. True promotions are rare.. mostly employees move sideways.

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The prestige - Free goodies & samples - The parties

    Cons

    - The worst professional experience I've ever had, working under a homophobic boss when 60% of men there are gay - No career visibility, and many people there have been doing the same job for over 10 years - high school culture, if you are a misfit or a threat you are GONE

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

    Pros

    Free product allowance Relatively good pay compared with others Nice office

    Cons

    Managers treat interns poorly and micromanage for the smallest details. Missions as an intern very uninteresting and operational tasks. No organizational processes whatsoever, any task may fall on any product manager or (full time employees, not interns) A lot of gossip and backstabbing in the office environment. Within 6 months I've seen employees who got burned out and quit

    Hi there, we're sorry your experience at L’Oréal is far from perfect and appreciate your honest feedback. We are surprised because usually, we see reviews of interns talking about challenging and meaningful work and we regret you did not have the same experience. We're working every day to constantly improve the workplace experience for our colleagues and we are already happy to see you enjoy most of them. Regarding culture or workload, we encourage you to voice any concerns to your manager and HR partners who are best equipped to help. Thank you again for providing your thoughts, we wish you a better start for 2020. Madeline

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

    Pros

    Amazing school to learn about everything that is related with product management. You get in touch with supply, budgets, legal, trade marketing, market anaylsis. You leave L'Oréal as a data-driven person.

    Cons

    High level of Working hours. 25% of interns stay at the company due to lack of opening slots for head counts

    I worked at L'Oréal for less than a year

    Pros

    It is only good for your CV. It helps to find other better jobs. Six months are enough, I wouldn't stay longer.

    Cons

    Management unable to organize anything. Lack of scheduling. No tools to perform any kind of analysis. All the decisions based on feelings and not on data. Work life balance totally absent, due to the high inefficiency.

    I worked at L'Oréal for less than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to all firm's functions and see complexity of a multinational company.

    Cons

    I didn't learn anything valuable outside the company. I was constantly asked to fix small things. Few real responsibilities. They simply hire interns to do jobs that no one wants to do, like write emails and call creative agency to ask them to do small changes to commercials (i.e. make it bold, please more blue...) As in any marketing department that is not the headquarter, there is no strategic view. It's pure operational marketing: execution of what Paris decides. People are stressed to execute things that someone else decided and they scream at you too often. Inefficient processes and old systems.
