      Pros

      Lots of flexibility and great friendly people on your team to help whenever you need it, freedom to work at your own pace as long as you get the job done and uphold sales goals.

      Cons

      have to be a self starter if not you may lack motivation to do the work since nobody is looking over your shoulder.

      Toxic White Male Culture

      Pros

      - get to work with some outstanding individuals who are all made to believe things will change - flexible work from home policy - good benefits

      Cons

      - performative with all the diversity work they are doing. at the end of the day only white people get hired in executive roles, especially men - huge culture of favoritism - Finger pointing, public shaming in meetings, back stabbing at every level - no transparency - no bonus - no merit increase - no work/life balance - no investment in technology, head count where it matters, development, etc - nothing to be proud of

      Pros

      Very nice people and lots of energy. Good diversity. They have a nice portfolio of brands and products to work with.

      Cons

      Some leaders and managers are missing the experience to be effective in their roles. They also don't know strategies on how to grow brands long-term.

      RUN AWAY IF YOU’RE A POC OR SEEK A MERITOCRACY

      May 17, 2021 - Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Some genuinely kind people. Most don’t take themselves too seriously and have humility. Made some great friendships that extend beyond the office. - good amount of autonomy and decision making freedom

      Cons

      - HR/leaders do not reward based on merit whatsoever. - Zero path for growth or development. Only right place, right time, right skin color. - Director and above is almost entirely white. I’ve only seen 2 POC promoted the entire time I’ve been here. Many completely undeserved and unjustified promotions for white employees. - HR will look you in the eyes and lie to you and then gaslight you about it at a later point in time. - Salaries are below competition and little to no raises.

      Toxic Work Culture

      Mar 4, 2021 - R&D Scientist in Morris Plains, NJ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      We get 7 summer Fridays off. However, during this pandemic everyone was forced to use their Fridays plus 5 vacation days every Friday after to save the company money. If employees didn’t have any vacation days left over, they had to take a pay cut for that Friday. There are some great people in the labs who are very talented and are genuinely good people.

      Cons

      I think this company is a complete mess. In the past two years, we have gone through 3 CEO changes. The company lacks stability and direction. Compensation is ridiculously below industry standards and there is very little opportunity for growth. Additionally there is a lack of communication between teams and upper management which often result in a buildup of projects, redoing work and wasting a lot of time. In addition, upper management is out of touch with their teams- a lot of people in management positions lack people skills, leadership skills and lack transparency. Often times many teams are working overtime due to the bungled communications and lack of infrastructure between groups. Teams are understaffed and are suffocating with the amount of work coming through. Additionally, many positions are treated as a revolving door- new people coming in and leaving or fired which only contribute to the disarray among teams. Overall, Coty is a very toxic workplace.
