    Pros

    Excellent education and products, joyful work with clients.

    I worked for the company in the US, and it was AMAZING. Executives in Canada do not uphold the values or ethics of the brand and don't appreciate the work of their employees. Working for Estee Lauder US vs CA is a stark difference.

    Advice to Management

    Please appreciate the time, money, and education the Estee Lauder brand has spent on its employees whether they be past or present.
