I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Opportunity, growth and a chance to find what is best for yourself.
Be Patient and MOBILE ! A great place for young woman and men.
if you put yourself out to move and try something new , you will find your spot.
Great place to learn the prestige cosmetic and retailer world.

Cons

weak HR department means development is on you. You need to find the right person to work for and get the job under them, The opportunities are there.

Advice to Management

Better HR will help find the dead wood that is hurting more growth.
The 20 percent that are your top people should get at least 20 percent of your time.

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

    Pros

    Strong work/life balance; good people; good brands; good products; consumer aware and genuine, high concern for product quality.

    Cons

    Not a good company for Talent -- politics and games are played in the worst way resulting in a culture that perpetuates a dynamic where those who perform mediocre or sub par are the ones rewarded with opportunity and mobility whereas the high level performers are exploited and pigeon-holed with little to no meaningful opportunity for growth; respect for education or advanced degrees lacking; culture has little concern for getting the right people in the right positions -- creates and fosters inefficiency and dysfunction; what you know and how you perform has little to do with how far you go or advance so, overall, there's little concern for enhancing knowledge or technical skill -- perpetuates inefficiency and dysfunction; high level performance results in more of the same work and less opportunity for growth, mobility or advancement -- fosters atmosphere conducive to low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Try listening before speaking and when you do speak don't just talk the talk -- walk the walk. Say what you mean and mean what you say. If you truly care about Talent and performance then focus on creating and strengthening a culture and system that rewards it and fosters it with meaningful opportunity, mobility and advancement. Don't just treat symptoms. Solve problems. Think a little more about the power you have to shape, build and influence -- see the Big picture -- help Talent help you.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Estée Lauder Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great health care, 401k, stock options, vacation benefits. Many brands within Estee Lauder Companies, which allows for more potential exposure and opportunities across brands.

    Cons

    Politics and egos can be frustrating at times. As with any large company, it can be slow-moving to adopt innovative techniques and strategies for doing business. From a branding perspective, Estee Lauder can sometimes lack consistency.
