Former Employee - Design Coordinator  in  New York, NY
Former Employee - Design Coordinator in New York, NY

I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The work was exciting, perks were excellent, health insurance out of this world great!

Cons

Climbing up the ladder was a very slow process and unfortunately political in the worst way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Boosting your mentoring skills, don't over work then hold back your support staff - it breeds resentment. Encourage continuing education and career advancement.

    Current Employee - Planner II in New York, NY

    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.
