North American Marketing (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 6, 2014
Estee Lauder offers great benefits and employee support, but it is a very political arena. Every division is run differently, but poor employment is tolerated by top management. Also, poor management of certain divisions based on micromanaging senior management which has a trickle down affect on all employees--demotivating and frustrating.
great benefits, employee support from a HR standpoint
political, certain top managers are allowed to treat employees poorly with no consequence

I would like this job because the security might be on high rate for employees and costumers so our community can stay safe.Also, The company would help my family by buying important things for my family such as food and paying bills.
Regional Makeup Artist (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 31, 2017
Great opportunity for growth in the beauty industry. You will learn a lot about product knowledge and selling techniques as well as application. Estée Lauder is also very generous with gratis, which they give to you, so you can provide the best costumer service
A typical day at work included helping customers find what they wanted in skincare and makeup. I learned that everyone's skin is different and that I want to help them find what they need. The workplace culture was good, sometimes overwhelming. The hardest part of the job was making sales being a part-timer. The most enjoyable part of the day was making my clients happy.
Payroll Specialist (Current Employee) – Melville, NY – August 27, 2017
There is a very close family culture at the company.
I taught myself how to use the programs and was trained on how to process everything. The most difficult part of the job is that there is not much advancement in the department and I feel pigeon holed.
A typical day is an 8:30 am to 5:00 pm with a constant work flow. I do enjoy working with people with different personalities and becoming a real team.
Benefits and PTO are great
Career advancements, raises and proper compensation are poor
Process Operator (Current Employee) – Melville, NY – August 19, 2017
Going to work is never really a problem. Some days you're overworked and the compensation received doesn't match the work completed. Other than that it's a nice environment with music playing, and friendly people
Estee Lauder gave us all the tools that we needed to succeed: great products, promotions, samplings, gifts with purchase, purchase with purchase, gift sets and value sets. My main focus was to assist the customer as a product specialist and makeup artist. I liked helping people, doing makeovers, keeping counters up to standard. I would typically spend time calling or emailing customers, cleaning, putting up stock, updating tester units. I really liked all of the tasks. The hardest part was drumming up business on days where there was little traffic, midweek and late evenings usually. Estee Lauder support from the Account Executive, Coordinator, and Education Specialist was very good.
Global Manufacturing Engineer Manager (Former Employee) – Trevose, PA – August 15, 2017
Senior Management is stagnant and would like to keep employees where they are which attributes to a transient junior management group. Hourly employees are left to do their jobs and the jobs of those who are supposed to be managing them.
