    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies

    Pros

    Well known brands and fancy office keeps people applying but doesn't make them stay.
    Decent benefits but still doesn't match up to competitors.
    Fancy address
    Well dressed employees with great sense of style

    Cons

    Low pay and abusive management is the number one reason people leave. They keep many bad apples because they are protected by other a users. People sue all the time so if you are being abused sue it will at least give you the salary you should have had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay and keep good talent instead of constantly losing people over 20k!
    Get rid of bad apples. Notorious leaders are in many brands like Estée Lauder and ADF.
    Move mid level management around through rotational programs other companies like loreal and CPGS let people travel.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, relaxed atmosphere, reasonable workload. Many opportunities to grow within the company and willing to help inexperienced employees to grow in career.

    Cons

    Old, terrible computer system. Managers totally out of touch with what is required to complete a days work. Often frustrating hang ups on time sensitive projects, leading to employees being spoken to for situations beyond their control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modernize.

    The learning experience that developed my career.

    Former Employee - Counter Manager in Decatur, GA

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Estee Lauder Brand is dedicated developing and training it's beauty advisor. The culture of this company is to create new product, to allow the BA to use the product, and for the BA to sell from their experience with the product. They have a generous gratis award system that allows BA to pick and choose the products that you fall in love with.

    Cons

    My experience was the work-life balance was imbalanced. The numbers, and hitting the mark every season didn't allow for family emergencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the family. Most talent on the department store level are dedicated to the brand, remember that we are dedicated to the family as well.
