What makes it so great? Its parent company is one of the largest manufacturers of beauty products in the world and has offices in 58 countries. There's a strong emphasis on mobility within the U.S. company as well as internationally: New college grads are entered into a rotational training program that gives them the hands-on experience of working in sales, marketing, management, and finance. Many employees have worked at more than one of its 19 brands, which include Maybelline New York, Lancôme, L'Oréal Paris, and Kiehl's Since 1851. An added perk: Employees are able to shop for discounted makeup and other products at an on-site company store.
