    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time

    Pros

    Great package for managerial level or above. Great travel budget if your level is allowed.

    Cons

    - Terrible in career development: Esp. for junior members. Most of the bosses couldn't be bothered to fill up their subordinates' reviews and submit on time.
    - Too much of a hierarchy, so much pleasing to do. And that is why some senior management don't seem to be competent at all. Have major trouble making operational decision timely. Lack of urgency to real business issues. Living in denial.
    - When an urgent business issue happens, no one is responsible, but your inbox would be flooded looking like everyone is doing their jobs.
    - Inconsistent expectation on employees' conducts, maybe due to lack of detailed guideline on usage of company expense.

    Advice to Management

    Be more impartial and rational when running business.
    Be effective on decision making and daily operation.
    Listen, Understand and Embrace truly CEO's vision.
    More actions, less talks.
