    Pros

    You get to work with a great team of employees. Management is nice within COTY. Flexible with employees having other job during M-F business schedule.

    Cons

    Having to work all holiday weekends. Sometimes you will have to miss family events. But most COTY employees are grateful for a job in this economy.

    Advice to Management

    Please be far in scheduling hours. Everyone needs to work. Remember that the employees on the store floors are the ones to generate sales numbers.

    Pros

    Consumer focused, goal oriented and successful company. Beautiful office space. People were very nice and welcoming. Produce great products and they seem to have good relationships with the celebrities/clients they work with.

    Cons

    As a company they need to focus more on their own image and public reception. Everyone knows their brands, but not the name Coty. They need to focus on what they want to be know for as a company, and spend some considerable time marketing themselves and the "Coty Brand"

    Advice to Management

    Management does a good job with relaying messages to employees and maintaining a presence in the office. However, greater communication would be useful as the company consolidates and evolves.

    Pros

    Opportunities for lateral and cross-functional moves, Good exposure to higher level management, Good Work/Life Balance, Summer Fridays, Solid Company

    Cons

    Not the best salaries, Not as much opportunity for promotion unless you are friends with someone in upper management

    Advice to Management

    HR should be looking at the industry salaries and be more competitive. Standards for employees are sometimes low so you end up working with many incompetent people

    Pros

    Great Pay, Full autonomy over your job. No one is there with you telling you what to do and how you do it. Each person is their own brand and as long as they are doing well with sales, it stays that way.

    Cons

    Calling in hours was extremely annoying

    Advice to Management

    Stop using phone call in to report hours.
