    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employee appreciate bags, discount on products

    Cons

    No appreciation for home life balance. If your salary, but non-management, you will be expected to work free over time and without notice. Dont get attached to taking lunch either. Upper management is rude and disrespectful, however want out right allegiance to them (not the company). They will put you down and not take any of your input into consideration. Quality of the product is of little concern, and the roof often leaks into the product.

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies part-time

    Pros

    Literally no pros at all

    Cons

    Had to give 1 star cause there is no option for 0. Horrible toxic environment. Everyone from the directors to the managers to the long term employees are on a hierarchy and treat everyone else as less then. They will belittle you, make you feel worthless, and treat you as well as a donkey. As part time they treated me as expendable and would schedule me at their mercy. There is also a race issue here in which people of colour are mistreated and saw it happen until it was finally my turn to go. Nothing is based on performance only favouritism by management who are grossly unqualified to run any team. And speaking to higher ups or even HR doesn’t do anything. The environment will never change as the people in power will shut it down. There has been such a high turn over rate and even if you get stuck, someone has to die, get fired, or get pregnant for you to move up in a position, let alone if you are considered. They may just hire temps instead to avoid paying for full salary and benefits like they always do. For such a small office I’ve never experienced such a toxic environment in my entire life.
