    Sounds good on resume but a lot lacking to growth opportunities, not merit based at all.

    Pros

    Generous gratis for products and good benefits.
    New CEO Fabrizio Freda is making wonderful improvements.

    Cons

    Low salary, poor personal career path with promotions unless you are favored. Very little respect or appreciation for advanced degrees. Very little staff diversity and very little diversity at higher level of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all these layers of management with people with titles that contribute very litte the staff does all the work ie Executive Directors and Directors in same department with little staff.

    a company for women to succeed without the catty atmosphere. i learned a lot and was taught a lot by my superiors and not ignored as an entry level position

    Cons

    once you start a job at estee lauder it is almost assumed you will stay in the company forever. but they do offer could job upward mobility, not just lateral
