Awful
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 12, 2019
Management is the worst. Unless you are an executive you have no advantages in this company. If you are lucky and have a good Manager who wants you to succeed then you are in a bad way. HR is the pits, the absolute worst ever, particularly if you are a person of color they are not not helpful, again unless you are an executive at the company. No job security- they don’t care about how long you have been working there. Management will stab you in the back in a heartbeat.
Their vision statement is a joke - they don’t apply that to working with one another, and or providing a better working environment and culture.
CEO is a nice man but has no idea what is happening at the most basic environment in his company; after all he is only ever shown the good in fancy corporate presentations. Therefore is completely unaware of the real culture in the company cause everyone is on their best behavior or risk a write-up/termination if you anger/unset your boss.
Pros
Great benefits and insurance
Cons
Horrible management staff, a bunch of snakes in the grass. The pay rate is below market value.

Excellent benefits and discount
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 14, 2018
The benefits are great and so is the product discount. Not the greatest work/life balance under new leadership. It is a fast-paced environment and can be challenging at times.

Difficult to advance and poor communication with Management
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 14, 2017
Most days are slow and consist of managing calendars. However, I'm losing skills that I thought I'd be using on the job based on what I was told at my interview. There aren't as many external or internal projects to work on with in the company to explore other areas of the company. People on my team don't offer support to try other things than what your job lays out for you to do.

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.

Loved it!
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 19, 2017
This was a temp position but I learned a lot moving around to the different departments. I learned about the different steps needed for bottle designs (perfume) as well as retail store development.

An Excellent Entry Level Position
Administrative Support (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 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.
Pros
Pleasant work environment
Cons
Entry Level Role
