    Pros

    Corporate Culture is better than most with good benefits.

    Cons

    IT Department has gone down the pipes, they do not build up/train employees as they used to do. IT outsourced to HCL, IBM & Cognizant.

    Pros

    Nice place to work with nice people. Super easy job. Clean warehouse. Canteen is really nice. Free transport

    Cons

    Boring job. 100% sometimes you feel discriminated if you're not Brit (is not a British Company). The management at the warehouse most of the time is messy, unplanned, inconsistent, and it seems they don't really know how to handle new problems. It must be their first management experience for sure.

    management, very hard to advance career, not a lot of room for growth in you stay within the organization, no work life balance, heavy weekend hours

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies part-time

    Pros

    Unmatched training and management. Stellar ability to create a team and relationships through virtual contact. Great perks like gratis and flexibility.

    Cons

    I regret leaving here and would go back if I could at my old rate of pay. Unfortunately, when you leave and desire to come back - it's at the starting pay rate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    large company. One of the leaders in the beauty industry

    Pros

    Great school to start in the industry

    Cons

    Too political, you only move up by who you know, not how good you are

    Advice to Management

    You lose a lot of talent because of the political system inside the company

    Pros

    The best part of working for Estée Lauder Companies is retention- we have a lot of longevity within this particular brand of Estée. There are great benefits and discounts. There is growth potential within the retail stores.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is to move laterally out of retail into the corporate world. The is a distinct break between the two divisions. It is a challenge for movement if you have reached the highest level within the retail store to find growth potential when there is little movement in the district/ regional retail environment.

    Pros

    while the company has a great culture and very active in the community, the pay falls on the lower side compared to others companies with the same status and business in the market

    Cons

    There is very little room for growth within the EMEA Region
