    I worked at Coty full-time

    Pros

    Discounted products, beautiful office space,

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth. Ever since the P & G acquisition all went downhill. Coty employees laid off and replaced with P & G management. Constant reorganization of departments and processes without proper training. Promises to train people to enhance in their position, does not take place. Favoritism. Constantly speaking foreign language, quite rude

    Advice to Management

    Advance people that deserve it and keep your promises. I would recommend reading the review because they are not favorable at all.

    I worked at Coty full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Company paid week vacation in December - Well known brands in fun categories - Good colleagues

    Cons

    - Poor management - Limited opportunities for intellectual growth - Lack of clear, strategic goals and vision Work for Coty if you want to experience the Upside Down alternate dimension. At first, it's difficult to believe you're in a parallel universe with the appearance of tables, laptops, meeting rooms, and other typical office items. However, you will quickly discover that you're fully immersed in noxious fumes...

    Advice to Management

    - Be transparent at all organizational levels. - Promote managers that actually understand people. Content expertise and experience doesn't guarantee quality management.

    I have been working at Coty full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. Co workers are nice and helpful. They have a good centralize weather alert for employees. Nice to have the company store

    Cons

    Do not feel valuable, can certainly tell there are ‘class’ differences, not enough parking, Feel like the company is trying to push people to FSA insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.

    I have been working at Coty full-time

    Pros

    You have the ability to drive things You are empowered to own things This challenging environment is intended for people with confidence and drive, if this is lacking, it may not be the right fit True appreciation for results - could be shown more by leaders at all levels Incredible challenge = incredible reward - wouldn't want to work for a company that I didn't feel challenged Positive movement in the right direction

    Cons

    Everything is a priority - this does seem to be shifting and more focus is apparent Speed is great but at times too much - back to point #1

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the top messages and help your people do the same Appreciate and value the effort/results everywhere you can More transparency - feedback is a gift! Keep listening to your employees - it feels like there's positive momentum here but still more work to do

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

    Pros

    Good brands. Lots of vacation/time off (Summer Fridays, week between Xmas and NYE off, PTO, and sick time, federal holidays). Most people are really nice. Good benefits

    Cons

    Losing a lot of contract brands. Management doesn't really care. Minimal to no training on systems

    I have been working at Coty full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay was the best thing about this place but that’s it. Having holidays off. Nothing else to mention. This place is a cesspit

    Cons

    Everything about the people in Coty. The worst I’ve ever seen. They hold no value in people at all, play favorites. The ones who work hard get punished while other skate by.

    Advice to Management

    Things are out of control in Sanford. They are firing people for little to no reason. The back biting, politics, and turmoil is at its worse.

    Gorgeous offices and beautiful products

    Cons

    Current leadership does not care about its employees and no one will help you progress in the company. It is difficult to get promoted
