Formulator (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 11, 2017
Reliant on good benefits. Stressful place to work. They are hiring like a "lean, mean machine" but expecting employees to work overtime and on weekends to compensate for lack of staff.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Unprofessional work environment

Has Changed and Not for the Better
Procurement Manager (Current Employee) –  NYC, NYFebruary 23, 2017
After 20+ years the company is going in a direction which makes it hard to get up and go to everyday. They have moved away from a culture that invests and values employees.

Great learning opportunity and exposure to industry but inconsistent culture
Executive Director (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 1, 2017
Great respect for senior leadership and values of corporation, although culture at corporate level vs. individual teams not consistent.

Senior managers not always focused on development and growth of team. Can feel more divisive vs. inclusive; very political. Feedback of individuals working on brand side seems to be more positive.

Great Company to Work For
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 27, 2017
Estee Lauder is a growing company and although well established they are growing and changing with the times but still keep some old traditional values of making sure their customers are happy. It is a family oriented company and as much as they want the best from their employees they want their employees to have a personal life. The workplace is fun and can be hectic so if you have no issues with a rapid pace environment then you'll be fine here.

Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Melville, NYJanuary 18, 2017
Overworked in an uptight environment. It is an older crowd with an old school mentality. Overall the company has good benefits.
