    I worked at L'Oréal

    Pros

    I will be honest, not kind. Nothing.

    Cons

    Over-rated as a global multi, I've worked for other multi-nationals and L'Oteal attracts and retains a poor talent pool because of the way they treat employees. If you have low self esteem or are a desperate grad, join them. The previous comments of bullying within from management is completely true. The comments re: a "high performance" culture reflects the fact senior people justify their incompetence by pushing those who work in field, on counter, as customer facing or in subservient positions.

    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.

    I worked at L'Oréal

    Pros

    I honestly could did not see any pros working there

    Cons

    I felt it was unsupportive working environment. I would describe it as dog eat dog type of place. Work / Life balance was not something I did enjoy and as a result I was feeling depressed and lethargic. I felt that the processes and systems were unnecessarily cumbersome and manual. I felt like a cog in a wheel, totally expandable - replaceable in a heartbeat. Pay-wise its not a very generous employer, given the expectations of staff. For me personally it was not a time well spent working there and I will look back at this company as the bad mistake I have made in selecting a workplace.
