New York City



Design Manager

Hello, I am a fashion professional curious about moving to the cosmetics industry for better career growth. Would anyone be willing to share what the culture is like at L'Oréal, The Estée Lauder Companies Inc., Revlon, Orveon Global, or any other large companies? With my background, I would transition most easily into product development or merchandising. Does anyone have perspective on which career track has more opportunities for growth? Thank you

      Good pay, good discounts in employee store. Overall good short term opportunity.


      -Too many steps to get anything approved, upper management constantly pushing approvals to the last minute, then change their minds on established designs sometimes well into the production process forcing designers to work overtime to meet deadlines. -Management is technically skilled but severely lacks good communication and other soft skills. Management not upfront with expectations and failed to give clear feedback and direction, very disorganized work environment. -Heavy corporate hierarchy - lots of inflated egos and fake titles to make people feel more important. -No culture, no boundaries, unnecessarily rude comments. Department sometimes feels like they operate as individuals in competition with each other rather than a team. -Technology is archaic, nothing works. Constant tech issues out of my control that prevented work being completed effectively. -Not a lot of room for growth.
