Pros & Cons

  • Work life balance and culture Opportunities to experience different aspects of Marketing Surrounded by motivating and driven peers Fast-paced and dynamic environment.
  • The flexibility, the smart dynamic people you get to work with and the great office are some of the things that makes L’Oréal an awesome place to work.
  • The amount of opportunities available to us. I love being able to rotate throughout the company seeing how different departments and brands work really allow me to understand what I enjoy and where I want to take my career in the future.
  • Training and Development Exposure to challenges and learning the skills required to develop in this field Clear progression path Fun people and team.
  • The level of responsibility and accountability you are given.
  • There is a lot of pressure on brands that sometimes grads don't get the opportunity to work on products as the day to day tasks are so demanding.
  • We don't have much structure and process - so sometimes everything gets a bit messy, last minute and chaotic - but that's just the nature of the work and how we do it.
  • The rigidity around compensation while you are a graduate.
  • High levels of stress and deadlines.
  • Many things happen last minute and aren't always very which results in a lot of stress a lot of the time.

A lot of autonomy, with a good level of support from management. Working with mainly internal stakeholders, and a lot of project management.

Management
Due to L’Oréal being incredibly fast-paced, managers sometimes forget to mentor their graduates and expect them to learn on their own and allocate admin tasks without giving the grad an opportunity to learn more about difficult tasks.

Office Work Environment
They are currently being renovated, so a bit tricky to work around construction, but office location is fantastic Dress code is flexible, smart casual is acceptable so long as you have no external facing meetings.

Recruitment
In my assessment centre there was a 45 minute one on one interview, the questions were fairly challenging but focused on yourself, for example "what does success mean to you".

Salary
I believe there is a trade-off in the pay for the opportunity for training and development and having the positive name of the company attached to you. The pay is fair but not overly generous.
