the people, the products, the creativity it requires, the challenge, the FUN you have with other interns and colleagues
There didn't seem to be enough space for all of us so 5 girls shared 1 conference room. This made it difficult to concentrate at times.
Advice to Potential Interns
L'Oreal is not the typical "9-5" job. You have to be willing to come early, stay late, and put forth 100% at all times. You must be a hard worker, creative, and persistent. No one holds your hand at L'Oreal. It is, however, the best experience I've ever had. You should have a passion for beauty and marketing to obtain this internship.
Advice to Management
Compensation and diversity were not issues at all. The internship pays very well and the interns each brought something different to the table. Employee retention varied. Some employees had been there for numerous years but I also watched many employees leave the company this summer. There is a lot of room for promotion and growth in the company and that is something that is very attractive about L'oreal.
