    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 Management

    Modernize.

    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 Management

    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.
