A great place to be part of building a best in class supply chain

Manager (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Coty full-time for more than 5 years

ProsManagement is committed to improving processes, and adding a value back to business. Will train employees in best in class process and business strategy. High importance on growth of the company, will train and promote the right people.

ConsThe "right people" get promoted again and again. Its all about being polished at Coty. Career growth is slow unless you have the right boss. Lots of shuffling of people in the same departments until they get it right. Many people have very stressful workloads, little resources are provided unless its absolutely necessary to performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease! Less middle management layers, let your managers work! Do we need to have 5 bosses?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Had good intentions, but growing too fast for its own good which led to employees taking the hit in many areas

Process Engineer (Former Employee)
Rocky Point, NC

I worked at Coty full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThey have a great product portfolio and brand recognition. Good pay and room for growth, but only in certain locations.

ConsGrowing too fast to stay organized and keep up with itself. Needs to take inventory of thins before moving forward with projects, but doesn't, and so employees suffer.

A very comfortable community.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Sanford, NC

I worked at Coty full-time for more than a year

ProsThe company treats its employees well. The benefits are also designed to fit the employee. Does well for itself and is, considering, very green.

ConsAs a Corporation it is difficult to account for its' overall shortcomings.

Advice to Senior ManagementBefore you make moves understand how it will affect the company and the traffic that flows. Also the sorting system is subpar (the planning seems to not cover the whole path).

Decent Work Environment, hard to move up

Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Coty full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSome good people, I made some life-long friends there. Working with fragrance brands can be fun and creative.

ConsCan be super cut-throat. You are not always judged on what you know, but sometimes who you know. There is immense pressure to be perfect - small mistakes are made to be huge deals. It's nearly impossible to get a promotion when you ask - it's all about timing and being in the right place at the right time.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a more straight forward career advancement plan - people are extremely frustrated staying in the same position for 3 years.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
