Did you take Maternity leave?
"No"
"I was full time most of my career with ELC (and I am now) but was forced to go to a part time role (with more flexibility) so that I could persue intense infertility treatment. This left me without paid maternity leave. I took 6 weeks unpaid leave and returned to my part time role which eventually moved into a full time position. It’s a departure from the career track I was initially on, but better aligns with family goals."

"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."
