    I have been working at L'Oréal

    Pros

    Meritocratic environment - if you are a great performer your career will fly 'Can-do' attitude - very solutions focused Networked environment - you can get decisions made very quickly Exciting environment - hundreds of launches every year Not proceedural - you have a lot of room to make decisions and stretch the boundaries of your role Passionate people - creates an inspiring environment

    Cons

    Long hours - but this is improving with strategies like summer working hours (finishing at 3pm on Fridays) If you don't enjoy a highly changeable and fast moving environment - L'Oreal may not be a good choice as an employer - you need to love change and be very flexible Communication is really important - you cannot rely on emails to build relationships - you have to build networks to get the best results
