I worked at Coty full-time
Good benefits, strong portfolio of brands, great people and lots of international exposure
Teams are short-staffed and overworked due to layoffs and changes in upper management; can be difficult to advance (career path is not clearly defined)
Advice to Management
Find incentives to keep talent within -- lots of people are leaving because there is not enough opportunity to move vertically
