Pros

Lots of days off and discounts. Believes in work/life balance. Lots of opportunity to move and advance.

Cons

Compensation is low. Raises are minimal. Do not give substantial increases with promotions. Little communication with all the brands and corporate.

Advice to Management

Reward those employees you are promoting by giving them the salary you would give a new person coming in, rather than just a small increase on current salary. Also needs to engage employees more so they don't just feel like cogs in the wheel, especially brand employees.

    Pros

    Top notch Education! Gratis! The ability to change woman's lives!

    Cons

    No Monday through Friday schedule, and if the store you are employed by is open holidays you will be working.

    Advice to Management

    Estee Lauder is an amazing company to work for. I know Estee Lauder beauty advisors wish they received Tiffany's or Links of London for Christmas like Clinique does.

    Pros

    Free products, good benefits, some great people, great location.

    Cons

    There's a very competitive, sometimes catty atmosphere among some of the young women which can make you feel like you're in middle school. HR does not go the distance for the lower-level employees; it's politics and who you know that seem to determine promotions, not hard work. Extremely rigid with corporate rules: for example, you're expected to be available nights and weekends, yet they can't be bothered to pay for your mobile devices if you're below a VP level, regardless of your job function.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all your employees with respect, not just the executives. Reward and recognize them for working hard.
