You need to lead with your heart's and minds. You need to listen to the employees that are actually working with the customers and regions instead of just listening to the higher ups.

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pros are brand recognition on resume and company store

    Cons

    Disappointing/unprofessional/unsupportive HR team members/managers, Doesn't invest in sufficient staff, resources and tools to do jobs effectively enough to match marketplace, Salaries are not competitive. Those who can play politics and games will do well in this environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in current/sufficient resources and technology to stay competitive and retain talented employees. Look within HR to see if they truly treat employees well or intimidate them. Change management desperately needed to merge the old and the new effectively.

    I have been working at Estée Lauder Companies as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Awesome products available at an excellent employee discount. Very decent management. Multiple brands to work within. Good job security - they don't terminate easily and often provide alternative placement. Friendly and accesible management, and many amazing examples of high powered female executives doing their jobs with style, grace and professionalism.

    Cons

    Too many "long-term temps" doing high level work for years that are not eligible for benefits because of their temp status. Feels like a sneaky dodge.
