    Former Employee - Art Director, Creative Services Deppartment in New York, NY
    Recommends

    I worked at Estée Lauder UK full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    This was quite a few years ago but the working environment was really pleasant, the offices were comfortable and the other creatives were very talented. All the creative departments were pretty close to each other along with the other brands also: Clinique, Perscriptives, Origin, etc. Nice bonuses and good benefits

    Cons

    At that time the art directors didn't have a lot of say in the mailer design department a in the model art direction category, just in the product category...it got a little boring at times.

    Advice to Management

    I think today they've loosened up to compete with the market but they still are pretty conservative in their creative approach...STILL, not a bad company to work for.

    Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians,

      Current Employee - Cosmetic Sales Associate in Houston, TX

      I have been working at Estée Lauder UK full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Gratis is good and working for Ester Lauder is good

      Cons

      Working for Ester Lauder at Palai Royal not a good combo.

      Advice to Management

      For Stage and Palai Royal stores that have Estee Lauder and Clinique counters. Let your cosmetic sales associates do there jobs behind the counter and let your retail associates do what you hired them for in retail sales.

      I have been working at Estée Lauder UK full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      People are great, office is nice.

      Cons

      Annual merit increase is the only opportunity to increase salary - there is no standard cost of living increase each year. It's near impossible to get the full 4%, most supervisors simply say they "don't give" 4% because there's always room for improvement. Salaries aren't readily adjusted to account for standard pay increases over time...so, a first-year manager hired from outside the company would have the same salary...
