    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Coty full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Post aquisition of the P&G brands, Coty is rebuilding their organization to compete within the Beauty industry. Everyone is working hard to implement the best path forward. Additional comments: - Collaborative workforce, considering that the organization is separated across various countries and time zones. - Management continues to listen to new ways to improve morale and drive process improvements.

    Cons

    - Decision making is slow at times. - Product opportunities need to truly deliver a benefit/need and they need to be available at the time of launch. - Employee development and growth needs to continue to be a priority.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Coty full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    401k, summer fridays, great brands, staff shop, dynamic, positive, diverse and open environment compared to most beauty companies. Overall the people are genuine and collaborative. They even sent us hand sanitizer to our home during lock down! The Bullying CMO and her cronies gone has been a big step forward last year.

    Cons

    Brands under funded, unrealistic expectations with resources available, Vacancies not filled, Amsterdam move disaster, company takes on too much at once and this holds it back. Hope it will change under another new CEO.

    I have been working at Coty full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Brands with good potential and a knowledgeable and dedicated workforce. Once was a great company with family values.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership, especially in Supply Chain. Excessive turnover at the VP level and above. Culture has dissipated as each new leader crushed the previous one's efforts. Turnover every 6-12 months of executive team.

    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Calabasas, CA
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Coty full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exception benefits- health care and holiday schedule. Some great, passionate team members/coworkers. Beautiful Calabasas home office.

    Cons

    Management with a one size fits all mentality, customizing for the business is an uphill battle. Too many managers excelling in discrimination and favoritism. Lack of priorities- everything is urgent. Following procedure trumps doing what is best for the business. Process over purpose, hard to make things happen. HR turns a blind eye and ignores employees. Overall a toxic work environment, so sad and unnecessary.
