    Pros

    Larger company with entrepreneurial spirit, ability to add real value, a lot of opportunity to grow and take on responsibilities, great lateral movement, strong culture, fast paced

    Cons

    When moving fast can move too quickly without evaluating all options/perspectives, behaves more like a start-up than a large company with strong processes and governance

    I have been working at Coty full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Lovely company, team atmosphere, people like to work and like what they do. The company is going through a massive restructuring, so teams are becoming more lean and hopefully that will mean more efficient.

    Cons

    For the most part, colleagues are lovely to work with; however, as with every corporation, gossip and behind-closed-doors conversations can dampen the working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more mentoring / menteeing opportunities.

    Great coworkers! Poor infrastructure and support of personnel / career development. Production is king at all costs.

    I worked at Coty full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers in Sanford, NC! Majority of us wanted the company to succeed (meet deadlines, quality & safety standards). Some access to product via annual gift bags and rewards.

    Cons

    Little support of training, development, onboarding processes, etc. despite the need and employees' requests to succeed in current positions or advance within the plant. No company store or way to purchase product like HQ in NY. Aggressively negotiate when you are hired because raises, bonuses, perks are rare (even with an excellent performance review - no correlation between your performance and rewards unless you have a well connected boss).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in infrastructure necessary to retain employees: Training, development, onboarding, etc. It is MUCH less expensive to invest in a current employee than constantly rehire the same positions (even at an hourly level).

    I have been working at Coty part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I think the best resin to work for them is that are a global company. Which does mean better job security.

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel that the upper chain does not have enough contact with the people at the bottom of the chain. We are on the front lines, and many of us are fragrance reps who are in college finishing business and marketing degrees. We have great ideas if they could be heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simply to do more surveys and see what the reps in the field are watching work with competition and what does not work.
