    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn the "metier". They support your development and coaching. A lot of training is offered depending of your seniority and your role.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance, the company do encourage healthy work life balance, but the reality is most of the time your direct manager expect you to work late nights and weekends on top of 40hrs + at the office

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working at l'Oréal is a bit like working at a global startup. Their commitment for enabling entrepreneurship is real. And it's a bit like being at a university, tons of young and motivated people. Inspiring vibe and constant exposure to new ideas

    Cons

    Career development can be improved. Mostly left to the manager so it really depends on who you get.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that employees have an ongoing and transparent discussion about their career progression with their manager and HR. Implement 360 evaluation (evaluation by manager, employees and collaborators)

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Significant level of autonomy - Flexible schedule - Plenty of opportunities to be entrepreneurial in your territory

    Cons

    - Very bureaucratic environment - Poor management significantly impacts team morale - Lack of upward mobility if you are unwilling to move to Montreal - Communication between head office and field team is problematic; feedback from field teams is rarely leads to improvements in strategy - They don't invest in the professional development of their employees

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to your sales reps given that you emphasize the importance of gathering market intelligence that is communicated to head office - Value your employees and take reasonable sources of job dissatisfaction as opportunities to improve your organization and reduce turnover
