    Pros

    - Family type culture. HR do a good job of running regular events to engage staff and bring everyone together - Great work life balance with flexible working hours - You are equipped with everything you need to be successful in your job. Example: Laptop, work phone, car etc. - You receive lots of training and further education - Salaries are fair and on par with averages in the industry - however their pay rises are tiny with no room to negotiate. - Traditional company that is starting to become more digitally savvy and is moving in the right direction

    Cons

    - HR always side with the senior manager when issues arise and conversations with them are not confidential - Low recognition for achievements - No career mapping, coaching or mentoring

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Melbourne

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies part-time

    Pros

    Beautiful product and fantastic brand Great customers Good discounts on products across Estee Lauder companies' brands

    Cons

    Terrible middle management A lot of them are promoted from counter level, with no corporate experience or understanding of business A lot of competition between counters, to the point of lying, backstabbing and 'dobbing' on each other to get ahead. Middle management tended to play favourites and not investigate situations before escalating to head office. Usually working in a big department store, have to deal with their politics too, which opens up a whole other can of worms!
