I have been working at Estée Lauder Companies as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

-cool work environment in research labs
-a lot of hands on experience
-decent pay as an intern

Cons

-not always enough work to keep interns busy, sometimes feels like interns are more of a burden than a help
-not always put in a lab with other interns so there aren't always other students around

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-come up with clear plans for interns before the summer program begins

    Current Employee - Executive Director in New York, NY

    I have been working at Estée Lauder Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice office, good views of central park, nice area, close to the apple store,
    super sweet mail room and messenger service employees, nice vacation (although you are discouraged to take it all at once and are expected to be available)

    Cons

    very understaffed, overworked, cut throat, no value to human nature, un inventive, systems upon systems, upon systems that make it impossible to create anything remotely creative, very political, bad lighting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like humans, communicate, create an atmosphere of team work and comrade not the opposite

    Informative, if a little boring.

    I have been working at Estée Lauder Companies as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Interning at Estee Lauder feels like a stepping stone.
    If interested in cosmetics, working in one of the Research Park laboratories could be ideal.
    Many diverse laboratories, mostly biological based.
    Friendly workplace.

    Cons

    Interns are not asked for by departments, only assigned haphazardly by higher-ups.
    Internship is not paid.
    Can be boring depending on your supervisor/boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign interns to the departments they express interest in.
