Be prepared - both literally and figuratively. This company doesn't accept unavoidable mistakes. And lose the ego. Everyone here is smart and impressive.

working here as a woman, i feel discriminated against. Seems like only a specific race and gender get ahead, regardless of experience. It's more of a who you know culture.

It is an energetic dynamic results driven company that employees many women and offers great benefits. However work life balance is challenging, and very dependant on philosphy of your direct manager.

Wonder opportunities, but only certain areas allow for work from home/partial work from home possibilities.

    I was full time, then left marketing to persue having a child via IVF and could't travel. I went to part time in Customer Service when I conceived, therefore wasn't eligible. I have returned to full time now, but with a substantial pay cut so that I can work from home.

I have been working for Estee Lauder for almost 5 years and have just returned from 12 weeks maternity leave. Benefits are good but not overreaching. Nothing is exceptional or special. Being a company started by a woman it surprises me that their benefits are at the minimum. Estee Lauder certainly has a lot of work to do if they want to be considered a top company to work for. However, the heart of the people are wonderful. This company is full of lovely, caring souls.
