    I worked at Coty (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing company with strong culture. Huge opportunities to learn about the sector and the world of Luxury and FMCG.
    Workplace is very friendly and informal, people are always available for clarification but also enthusiast and passionate about their job.
    Many initiatives organized by both the company and the employee beyond work (e.g. sports club, dinners, games...) makes working there a great pleasure.

    Cons

    The company (especially the Luxury division) is still struggling with the post-merger integration. there are some issues at the IT level (sometimes the service is slow in solving problems) and at supply chain level (caused by the process of integration of the warehouses).
    probably, the relationships with the respective global teams could be more effective and efficient sometimes.
    I strongly believe that these issues are temporary anyway, top management is working very hard.

    Pros

    Great place to work hard and get paid. They identify talent and invest. I’ve never had so much responsibility, and while that comes with some stress, it’s definitely a boost for my career.

    Cons

    Too much turnover and negative perception of company. Unhappy employees ruin it for the rest of us. Focus on hiring talented people and getting rid of those who can’t adapt to change.

    I have been working at Coty full-time (More than 3 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 have it.

    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

    Pros

    There are some nice, friendly people scattered in the office.

    Cons

    Senior leadership throughout are blind to what goes on.

    Advice to Management

    Coty leadership very much cares about the employees and how they remain engaged through their career journey. However, this does not appear consistent with your experience.

    Please know that employees are our top focus! To further reinforce this statement, we recommend you please connect with a member of leadership or HR for support. Either party would be happy to further explain the performance management process and discuss next steps as it relates to your career.

    As the Coty organization continues to evolve, developing our unique culture is a critical part of this process. Your feedback will help positively drive our results!

    Above is Senior HR Director's response to all that i said previously. The fact that I have not received a single one on one the entire year just went over your head. I just received my only one on one.. 15 days after the deadline for the "company wide assessment reviews" that i was force to acknowledge w/o having any feedback in person. This is why people are leaving. No action is taken.

    Pros

    Been with the company over 6 years, it is a very dynamic environment where you have the ability to move around and tackle different roles.

    Cons

    Challenging working environment. Tons of pressure to turn business around with no clear priorities from management which can make for unproductive and circular conversations. People are very stressed out

    Advice to Management

    Set clear priorities and stick to them. Be realistic with goals and objectives.
