    I have been working at Coty full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Summer Fridays
    - Week between Xmas and New Year off
    - Discount on some product
    - Generally speaking, nice coworkers

    Cons

    - The focus is on the bottom line without regard for employees
    - 3rd or 4th round of consolidations/layoffs since I've been with the company in 5 years
    - Upper management is a mess
    - Lack of focus on innovation
    - It was a much better place to work several years ago before going public

    Advice to Management

    We're expected to grow our declining brands without increased investment in the face of little innovation. How is this possible? We continue to acquire brands without figuring out how to run the ones that we already own. Good employees are constantly leaving- figure out why people are leaving and then try to do something to action that.
