    I worked at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    The managers, from your Area Manager to everyone in the head office who you will communicate with, are so friendly, supportive, helpful and efficient. They are fair, give positive and encouraging feedback as well as constructive criticism (without making it personal). I enjoyed the training and learning about the history of my brand too - it helps to really cultivate a genuine passion within the company! Best employer I have had so far.

    Cons

    In terms of logistics - the products by big cosmetics brands owned by L'Oreal often only reach New Zealand months after their release in the USA or overseas.

    Wow, thanks so much for this glowing review. We couldn't agree more about the passion that drives us every day. Passion for innovation, passion for our people, passion for understanding the consumer - it makes every day an adventure, where we're all enjoying the collective challenge to capture the market.

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

    Pros

    There are so many growth opportunities. If you are potentially willing to move, there are so many brands and areas of expertise to move into. They really care about their employees - for the interns who cannot extend into full time, they are offering panels, career services, ways to keep in contact, and self brand imaging. Work wise, I have been given ample opportunities to own projects and show my leadership.

    Cons

    The only con is the amount of politics involved. This is to be expected in such a large, established company but sometimes the politics play a role in decision making.
