    I have been working at Coty full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    We get paid very well and the company is always trying to keep up with the competition. 401 K match at 6% my 401 K has doubled since I left the last company that I was with, they matched 3% (if you stayed 3 years). I am putting in 6% and Coty is matching me 10% (what other companies offer that). People are very friendly and helpful to work with. I plan to retire here! Some people don't know how good they...

    Cons

    The systems still need improvement so that they communicate with each other, there is still a lot of double work going on, but I think they are working on it. Trust your employees to make decisions, it will help in the long run! Overall, I enjoy working for Coty!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees...Give better training on the benefits - too general

    I have been working at Coty full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, product discounts, company car.

    Cons

    Very cliquish environment. Too many good performers are made to quit or transfer if one reporting line doesn't like them. Difficult to move up. Corporate employees rarely leave on time, tough for families.

    Advice to Management

    Do company-wide employee surveys - anonymous - to understand what people in the field think.

    Pros

    Flexible field hours Some benefits Company car

    Cons

    1. Leadership has no communication 2. Nor do they work together for the greater good of their people. * This represents investing and spending money where it’s not needed. 3. Middle management is not the best equipped to build and grow members of the org. No training 4. Culture. Unfortunately there is no and it is extremely toxic. 5. There has been no change for decades. It’s recyled products relaunched, education...

    I worked at Coty full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Salaries as decent, benefits are good, some really good people working there.

    Cons

    Site leadership are elitist, growth opportunities are polularity contest and not merit based, lack of respect for the people working on the floor, temps are treated like second class citizens and the HR department is useless and vendictive. It definetly doesn’t pay to be a women or minority with the current leadership team in place.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that the value is added at the packaging floor and that there are very talented people who still work there...for now

    Pros

    Good lifestyle and respect for private life/ work life balance

    Cons

    Constant changes in top management and teams, coupled with a poor strategic vision and a lack of structure make Coty difficult these days. Inexistant career path.

    I have been working at Coty full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Up until recently ( last 2 years) everyone was working towards the same goals and objectives and collaborated as a team. Yes of course there was complaining here and there but in the end we all made it happen!

    Cons

    Coty no longer values it's resources, only the bottom line. Whole departments are being eliminated and as a result required tasks are not being carried out due to "lack of resources"

    Advice to Management

    Stop being penny wise and dollar foolish, the salaries you are cutting are impacting your bottom line in a negative way. Motivate your employees to want to make the company a success
