    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some of the most committed, wonderful people have built this company and working with them is a delight
    Very family oriented culture that looks out for its people and offers a personal level of belonging
    Great products and a very solid financial foundation
    Globally involved and very diverse

    Cons

    Company is changing dramatically to being stock price driven and eroding its foundations of family and belonging
    HUGE issues with processes and standardization. The stuff that should be easy, isn't.
    New leaders are cut throat and short term in their thinking as the maximize income while sacrificing longevity
    Tough to get a good foothold as the company is very relationship oriented
    HR is very weak and splintered making your experience from manager to manager VERY inconsistent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sacrificing heritage for profit, Invest in your people not consultants, listen to your people on the front lines

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Estée Lauder Companies in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    2nd interview with Talent Plus was ridiculous...typical questions ex: on a scale of 1-10 are you a positive person? etc.....Like talking to a robot. This Talent Plus Co. is worthless!
