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

      Pros

      A good company with entrepreneurial spirit. Great benefits and fun place to work depending on which group you are in.

      Cons

      After P&G integration, what made Coty great has changed. Lots of great potential but overall vision and goal not very clear.

      Advice to Management

      Try to maintain the Coty Culture as much as possible.

      I worked at Coty

      Pros

      Flex hours that allows R&D to have every other Friday off is a nice perk (though there is no guarantee of how long that work schedule will continue).

      Cons

      One major difference between Coty and other companies is in how it motivates its employees. Good companies motivate their people with "rewards and recognition" system. Coty motivates people with "fear and intimidation". As a result, most employees walk around Coty always fearing that the tiniest of mistakes could get them fired. The culture of "fear and intimidation" makes people very oppose to trying new things as...

      Advice to Management

      Well, my advice would be to get rid of 90% of their Senior Management in R&D. So that would be a good start.

      I have been working at Coty

      Pros

      Not a whole lot if you happen to work for COTY R&D. The only thing going for COTY is the Summer Hours system that results in having every other Friday off (which they threaten to take away all the time on the whim of Senior management).

      Cons

      Coty relies too much on their Fragrance business for profits. In tough economic times, there isn't a whole lot to fall back on since so much is dependent on fragrance business. In general, most Chemists and Senior Chemists never developed the skills needed to lead projects effectively. They are mostly a pair of hands for Directors who are too busy having contests about who has a better office space or some other ego contest....

      Advice to Management

      Need to seriously trim the Directors / Senior Directors / VP / Senior VP in the R&D organization. Need true leadership that implements innovative programs to deliver some products that can turn the Company earnings around. The last thing we need is leaders like Bernd Beetz who is being sued for cashing in his stock options and making a tidy profit at the expense of the company. The rest of the executive company is pretty...
