    Pros

    Great Benefits and good work/life balance. In general, the teams are very easy to work w/ and knowledge about their work

    Cons

    Shifting to a data-driven company w/ people who have been doing the same job for years remains a challenge. Also, a matrix makes it that sometimes no one is accountable.

    Pros

    Corporate Culture in NY promotes a healthy work life balance w flexible hours and working locations. FIVE months parental leave which is unheard of. Management wants you to succeed and helps you to do so. Benefits are some of the best you can find. Extra care is given to which days we are off for holidays to allow extra time with family.

    Cons

    Since most people do not leave the company because they love it so much it can be hard to move up within your business line. Dual career paths being rolled out should help with this.

    Pros

    Great benefits, work life balance, and HUGE product discounts. I have had a very positive time working here and believe that the Estee Lauder Companies is a great place to work. We have flexible work hours with 5 full Fridays off in the summer. There is plenty of opportunities to advance in your career, and you will also get to travel around the world!

    Cons

    NYC headquarter offices are very old and outdated, but I know that they are remodeling the office in the next year.

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really good benefits and a few "hidden gems" when it comes to the quality of the people. If you're able to make a friend keep them.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, no room for any mistakes - perfection and complete dedication is an always-on expectation. There is also a serious lack of cultural competency across the board. Facilities & perks are lacking

    Pros

    Competitive insurance and benefits, good work/life balance, lots of learning opportunities

    Cons

    There is no career tracking at junior/mid level, which makes growth very difficult. Employees are also limited to pursue one job at a time, but there is no urgency for the hiring manager to deliver a verdict and free the employee up to pursue an alternate opening of necessary. Employee’s direct managers are also notified as soon as an application is submitted—if the manager is not supportive this can lead to tension in the work place.

    Very generous benefits; managers that care about their employees and look to give opportunities for progression. Changes very quickly.

    Cons

    Work life balance really depends on who your manager is.
