    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great perks, holidays and colleagues in my team

    Cons

    Management lacks basic skills and people management and no room for progression. Very frustrating. No communication from management

    Advice to Management

    Please review the management team, people are in places because of friendships and not skills. If you look after your people, your people will look after your company. Company culture and values are in place but poorly executed in places

    Amazing place to work, genuinely such lovely people in every brand. Everyone has a great sense of team work. Really fun, interesting place to work with great people. Flexible hours means you can work from home more or flex your hours which is really handy. Office in London is pretty great too with a terrace on the top floor which is perfect on sunny days, discounted beauty treatments, amazing product discounts,... free gym!
