ELC is a great company to work for. Company offers great benefits i.e 401k, RGA, health and insurance. On a top of that there are other programs for the employees. I definitely recommend this company.

Great company to work for with strategic management and talented human resources. Top of the line cosmetics company with a bit antiquated systems and a slightly behind in technology implementation.

Has Changed and Not for the Better

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.

I have been afforded to meet the most amazing people daily,helping them meet their shopping needs, and desired looks. I have learned how to maintain client relationships as well as meet the company's needs consistently. This by far has been a very rewarding company to work for.

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.
