New CEO/CFO leave a lot to be desired

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGood People, good medical and dental benefits, tuition reimbursement program, generous product discounts, ability to travel world wide, corporate casual dess code

ConsWork life balance, salary, devalue exiting employees, long hours expected with no compensation as everyone is "exempt", lack of overall employee appreciation. Each year more and more is taken away.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry sticking to the core values that Mrs. Estee Lauder and Mr. Leonard Lauder talked to. Their PEOPLE were their greatest asset. Now that Mr. Leonard Lauder is no longer as involved the new CEO/CFO do not post every available position internally and first recruit from the outside. They pay them higher salaries and then they do less. We have let many full time employess in Manufacturing go to cut costs yet 10 more "gratuitous" SVP positions are created that nullify the cost savings.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
