What is health insurance like at Clinique?

Pros

great discounts on all ELC brands, health benefits, decent PTO, some great team members, well known company and brand so it looks great on your resume

Cons

Very disorganized and lack of direction, huge turnover in all departments (almost everyone I know is looking to get out), stressful due to the lack of leadership, no loyalty whatsoever for long term employees. Also, unless you're a director and above you probably won't get promoted until you've slaved away for 2+ years (aka slow to promote for most people). They think they're being "innovative" but they're old school and the only thing saving the brand is that they have a lot of loyal (old) customers (legacy brand). People can get pretty nasty to meet their bonus goals. Overall I left because I did not see a career growth at Clinique.

Advice to Management

Roles with constant turnover, you should look at the common factor. Usually it's the same Directors or VPs that have held the role for way too long and have no experience in people management. There should be an anonymous review of upper management by all team members (not just a one way street). If given the opportunity, I would have liked to provide feedback of how my directors can/could improve as team leaders.
