Management Trainee, at L'Oreal
Absolutely the people. The opportunity to network and build a network of relationships throughout the business. There is often a lot of admin (which can seem/is unnecessary).

The people are brilliant. You're immediately made to feel very welcome in your team. The atmosphere is busy but not intimidating and you are entrusted with big repsonsibilities very early on in your career.As the company has such a sociable and lively atmosphere, you can occasionally forget you are around co-workers, managers etc - so it is often necessary to take a step back and ensure that professionalism is maintained. A slight double-edged sword!

The environment at L'Oreal is brilliant. A very young, friendly and enjoyable organisation. The occasional long hours, but that is expected, and it is never without purpose.

Management Trainee, Supply Chain at L'Oreal
Exceptional talent across all teams. Team dynamics are great. Very friendly staff. Lots of responsibility - the pace is fast and learning is very much done on the job. Exciting to work with an amazing brand portfolio.The firm operates with a low headcount - and the pressure that this creates can manifest itself positively or negatively. While it might mean you have more responsibility and ownership of your work/projects, it tends to mean that you have a slightly unreasonable/impossible amount to do. Hours can be long depending on the team and function.
