    The cosmetics line closed all it's make-up counters and decided to only be sold online.

    Pros

    Estée Lauder is a leader in the cosmetic world and for good reason the products are fabulous and it's not hard to sale something you love!

    Cons

    Sometimes the communication with account executives is not good. They are supposed to be there to help but most of the time we can not reach them for questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice really just work on communicating better with employees

    I have been working at Estee Lauder UK full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really love what I do. I feel like there are a lot of opportunities and room for growth. Work is very challenging and interesting. The brand I am working for is doing very well and it is exciting to be part of it.

    Cons

    I feel like salaries do not reflect the actual work that employees do. I feel like everyone always wants more money but I think it is justified here. In general ELC pays lower than our competitors. I am not sure how they can get away with it considering the company is doing so well.

    Better benefits for working mothers are expected from such a big company in this industry. There is definitely a lack of understanding of work/life balance in this company.
