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

Pros

Lots of days off and discounts. Believes in work/life balance. Lots of opportunity to move and advance.

Cons

Compensation is low. Raises are minimal. Do not give substantial increases with promotions. Little communication with all the brands and corporate.

Advice to Management

Reward those employees you are promoting by giving them the salary you would give a new person coming in, rather than just a small increase on current salary. Also needs to engage employees more so they don't just feel like cogs in the wheel, especially brand employees.

    I have been working at Estée Lauder Companies as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interning at Estee Lauder feels like a stepping stone.
    If interested in cosmetics, working in one of the Research Park laboratories could be ideal.
    Many diverse laboratories, mostly biological based.
    Friendly workplace.

    Cons

    Interns are not asked for by departments, only assigned haphazardly by higher-ups.
    Internship is not paid.
    Can be boring depending on your supervisor/boss.

    Advice to Management

    Assign interns to the departments they express interest in.
