    Former Employee - Sales Coordinator in Sydney

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good incentives, some very good people

    Cons

    Some managers were very toxic, they didn't include people and some senior managers would just hire their friends even though they have no experience in what they were doing. Pay was pretty low because there would be an endless amount of people willing to do the work due to the "glamorous" nature of the company.
