Account Executive Estee Lauder (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 10, 2014
As an Account Executive was responsible for 22 stores, 60 employees and sales of $10M. Primary role was to exceed sales plan through the development of my team. Hiring and retaining top talent was key. Responsible for inventory and budgets. Developing strong retail partnerships was invaluable and accomplished this through building trust and owner ship of the business. A typical day was traveling to two stores in either NY, NJ, CT or PA. Meeting with store management to negotiate additional hours, space and location.Coaching and developing the team. I had excellent relationships with my peers and management. The most difficult part of the job was on boarding new buyers. The most enjoyable was exceeding sales expectations.
Business Manager/Mentor (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 17, 2014
Meet with Store Manager and share what will be my plan for the day during my visit at the store. Discuss the sales performance of each member of the counter and compare their results with the competitors. One on One coaching conversation and development plan to achieve all the expectations. Role play the best selling techniques to maximize results and great customer service experience.
I learned that CONSISTENCY is the key of success, specially in the retail environment. How to conduct meetings and trainings. Manage budget for special events and daily basis. I learned so much from each one of my co-workers. Great communication, excellent relationship. It was an amazing experience and a great opportunity to learn how to manage your own business.
Vice President, Global Business Planning (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 14, 2015
A great company with a strong global culture starting from the Global Brands. The manage the brand from a global perspective, primarily from their New York Corporate office.
Global roles require a fair amount of travel to Europe or Asia, which can be exciting since it is normally to some of the best cities in the those regions like Paris and Hong Kong where their Regional Offices are located.
Exciting company with a lot of product launches per season and year which will keep you humble as you can get winners and losers every time.
Travel to nice destinations, exposure to many best practices and talented leaders.
Manager, Global Product Development - Marketing (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 17, 2013
While a typical day can be busy, you do have time to plan and build strategies. It is a great place to learn about collaboration and cross-functional team work. Management is strong and your co-workers all come from a fantastic pool of talents, backgrounds and skills. You could say that the company can be political, but which company isn't? It's better to learn how to play the game early on for a successful and highly rewarding career. This company gives you many great opportunities to learn, to grow and professionally develop as well as to work in different areas and travel.
-I arrive at Estee Lauder and throughout my work day I keep an upbeat attitude and assist and advise customers in skin care and make up products. -I have learned to achieve sales goals with in a shift, I have also learned to tailor my sales pitches for each individual customer. -Not only do I manage my sales goals but I also take daily inventory of products -We are a great team and I enjoy coming to work everyday. -The hardest part about the job is not having as many working hours as I wish to have in my position. - Seeing the satisfaction from my clients with their new products.
Estee Lauder is the best company! I really enjoyed the work that I preformed as a PM.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 11, 2015
A typical day at work would be following up on all the projects that were assigned to me to see where we stand on the schedule and budget.I'v learned to be flexable and to treat everyone with respect. I enjoyed working with management and my co-workers were talented and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the day was not being able to put down the phone to answer questions concerning the my projects. The most enjoyable part of the day was recognition from a client for a job well done!
Administrative Support (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 18, 2014
This is a wonderful work place, if you're interested in branching out to Human Resources and or IT. A typical day will have much calendar management for senior level staff, light travel management and occasional run for lunches. My co-workers are very polite and helpful (a huge perk to working here). The only challenge is working an entry level position (Clerk fashioned duties) when you've been working as an Executive Assistant for many years. It's really a good job for a college or Junior Assistant. Overall a very nice place to work.
Executives are allowed to get away with behavior that would be unacceptable by most corporate standards.
Director of Marketing (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 8, 2014
While I learned a lot about the cosmetic & fragrance industry during my tenure at the Estee Lauder Companies, I became very burnt out and unmotivated at the end of my time there. It was a 24/7 job that did not leave much time for anything else. Upper management was lacking interpersonal skills and at times were very demeaning to employees. This is not a place that is good at developing employees.
Director (Current Employee) – Bristol PA – April 24, 2015
A typical day at work is fast paced with daily firefighting drills to protect business objectives. There are multiple cross functional meetings during the day. I'm a supply chain problem solver with direct responsibility for the development and coaching of team on professional and business situations. I bring the best balance solution to the company and internal/external business partners on a daily basis. I'm a supply chain executive that quickly aligns tactical efforts to strategic initiatives to support sustainable business growth.
Strong "family and work" balance is easily achieved
no room for growth. dead end call center. a revolving door. only nepotism will get you ahead
Consumer Response Representative (Current Employee) – Bristol, PA – February 12, 2015
A typical day at work is much like that of a robot. Although we take calls for 30 different brands, little product training is provided. Management is one big clique. A recently promoted manager has a history with human resources for making racist comments.
free product. generous discount
short lunch breaks. micromanagement. no room for growth. alot of nepotism
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Bristol, PA – May 6, 2014
Packing receiving in a distribution warehouse. I've learned the in's and out's of the warehouse industry and would like to take the knowledge and skills that I've learned and utilize it. The management was very supportive at the organization. The hardest part of the job was waking up so early in the morning, but after awhile, I began to get used to it.
Beauty Guide (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – April 26, 2014
Your just a sales number not a individual. There not much room for advancement the pay is not the best and barely average for the cosmetics world. Cooperate doesn't not care about you as an employee just the sales you make. Great gratis and fellow co workers though. Hardest part of the job was making the daily sales goal.
free products (gratis), great co-workers, scheduling is decent days/hours
above management sucks, all about sales, no employee appreciation, not much room for advancement
Associate (Current Employee) – Melville, NY – November 19, 2014
Estee is filled with ambitious and intelligent people. Most employees have been there for a VERY LONG time and will tell you it is an amazing place to work. As a younger employee, I find the culture lacking and the dynamics a bit dull. Management and the co-workers are great, but the company should lighten the place up with a newer facility and a more fun/attractive culture.
Digital Marketing Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 19, 2013
I worked with amazing minds at Estee Lauder. I felt like I was apart of the team at all times, attending all meetings and having a say in certain projects/ideas. My mentors there were extremely hard working and driven in their work. It made coming to work exciting.
occasionally free lunches, casual work environment, caring co-workers
Nice place to work if advancement is not a priority
Internal Control Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 16, 2015
Nice place to work. While a public company still operating as family owned. If you are connected with someone at the family or someone connected to the family you will be OK. If not, your career is a gamble at the mercy of your supervisor. HR does not get involved in anything but hiring.

Corporate Marketing (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 1, 2015
Experience here has overall been positive. The employees are typically been very driven and smart across all levels of the organization. Compensation is mediocre for the industry average (especially at the lower levels with less than 7 years experience).
very good with holidays, unlimited sick days, intelligent employees, a lot of opportunities to move within company

A typical day consists of ordering supplies for the HR suite, mandating the phone for the entire department.

Senior Accountant (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – August 24, 2012
The company provides great benefits. It is a stable company that is doing well in this economy. There are frequently job posting allowing for an individual to grow in experience. They also provide a fair amount of vacation days and summer friday's.
As a freelancer my pay was not always payable buy EL. As a freelancer some of the above ratings do not apply.
