    Pros

    Great product discount. Very analytical company. Great at innovation

    Cons

    Not so good at sustaining or building brands. Also, company lacks a strong culture or vision. In addition, organization is very clicky, and it's really about who you know to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to focus more on implementing a strategic vision and culture, besides making money. Improve on talent development and have more female leaders in your organization.

    Former Employee - Senior Packaging Designer in New York, NY

    I worked at Coty full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Great chances to grow, many opportunities for professional development arise
    - Full of really intelligent people

    Cons

    - One has to develop an extra layer of skin, environment can be cutthroat which is why you have to many sure you know what you're doing.
    - Typical beauty/fashion world, if you're not into dressing the part or being on trend, it's difficult to fit in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Upper management relies far too much on middle management, and middle management isn't really as experienced or as mature as needs to be. A review of hiring practices for middle managers would be greatly beneficial, they need to find more people that make you want to work there instead of run for the hills.

    Painful

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Coty full-time

    Pros

    The pay is always what draws you in, the people is what makes you run from the door screaming

    Cons

    They lack ethics. They share information that they shouldn't. If a certain large box store found out, they would be dropped. The group culture is gossip because they all worked at every job together, were roommates in college, went to high school together, etc so they form a "mean girls" world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on making a true team, not a business run by people who follow each other from one job to another.

    Disappointing Experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Coty

    Pros

    Huddle rooms and conference rooms in the Empire State Building are impressive and all have new technology.

    Cons

    Really long work hours. Office space in the Empire State Building is very open and desks are crammed one next to the other. You can see the person in front of you or next to you picking their teeth or their nose! You have no privacy even in the tiny phone rooms.

  10.
