      Pros

      Good benefits (especially if you stay for 3+ years), never boring, fast-paced environment, cool products that you get to work on

      Cons

      Not a good place for innovation, don't expect to have many champions supporting any opportunities for improvement you pursue. Current state of technologies they use is 10 years behind other leaders in the industry. Career development based entirely on politics, hence upper-management is incompetent. Many bad leaders advance their careers because of the way they hold themselves in meetings, co-signing whatever other high-profile people say. Way too much finger pointing due to bad leadership. You will find that there are no performance reviews for a reason. Everything moves so slowly because upper-management has to micro-manage everything. France is at the center of everything. French colleauges are put on a pedestal. Very hit or miss depending on your manager/team. I've heard/seen some terrible misstreatment from colleagues and their managers. L'Oreal does not develop you, you have to put the effort into developing yourself. You will find that some of your smartest colleauges will leave the company. The ones who have been here for many years are usually stuck.

      Bad culture, bad management, some very good people

      21 Oct 2020 - Senior Product Manager in Santiago

      Pros

      Besides the great brands and lovely products, the people there is trying their best to thrive on a fast paced company with no guidelines, no clear processes and mostly top-down policy. There is a lot of benefits, such as extra paid time off, free courses and free products (although in my country there's no way to buy what you want with discount. Forget about it!).

      Cons

      The culture is really bad. People scream and curse to each other on meetings and one have no autonomy, even in higher roles such as directors, as you need to do as you're told so. People work from 8h to 23h and that seems normal and expected. If you are a fresh undergrad and really competitive, it can be a great fit. However, if you have family, especially kids, it can be really tough. I suffered psychological harassment from direct management and when searched for help, HR said this person had already made it several times before, but when confronted last time, she said she was going to change. HR confessed having no authority to do anything. So I left and even so, had to hear that "I was going to lose the job of my dreams and I would regret for the rest of my life, and they wouldn't accept me back when I come running asking for my job again". I didn't.
