    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Fun, fast and full of passionate people who are willing to help each other out. As an individual you can effect change and make a real impact on the Business.

    Cons

    Culture is unique vs most Australian businesses. It's not for everyone - and even if it is, can take some time (~1 year) to get used to.

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Really dynamic workplace, many roles anchored in digital, get a lot of autonomy and opportunities to learn and progress in the company. Working with lots of young, like-minded individuals so can make friends for life.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be poor depending on the team, lots of pressure from top down and culture isn't always the best (but they're trying to improve this).

    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.

    Pros

    + Everyone here is driven. It's great to be with other motivated people. + The company ACTUALLY cares about its people - compared to wanting to look like it cares. + Even in the busiest of times you're never too overwhelmed. Enabled through management initiatives and your working environment. + We live and breathe beauty. + Ethics isn't a buzz word. This comes out in everything we do.

    Cons

    - Things move slower than most places. - The different divisions are still very separated.
