Estee Lauder is an AMAZING cosmetic company to work for! I felt the training and education was structured, compensation was more than fair, and the expectations and goals were reasonably achievable.
I really enjoyed working under some of the executives I had earlier in my career, I do feel there is room for improvement with some of the districts leaders (Some were placed into positions they were not properly trained for, trickling down to not optimize retail door success)
As most retail positions these days, internal advancement is tough. There are company shifts and cuts happening with a lot of displaced people and not too many jobs to fill. However, I still feel Estee Lauder has done the best job they can with the resources and people they have been given.
