I have been working at Estée Lauder Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Generous gratis for products and good benefits.
New CEO Fabrizio Freda is making wonderful improvements.

Cons

Low salary, poor personal career path with promotions unless you are favored. Very little respect or appreciation for advanced degrees. Very little staff diversity and very little diversity at higher level of management.

Advice to Management

Get rid of all these layers of management with people with titles that contribute very litte the staff does all the work ie Executive Directors and Directors in same department with little staff.

    Think about what you say to your employees and how it affects them. People work for people. The company has an established reputation, but you affect your employees directly.
