    Great brands, central location in NYC

    Incredible amount of CEO / Senior Management turnover means you are constantly onboarding and changing direction Former CMO terrorized people and got away with it Lack of integrity and poor conduct by the top people and encouraged No development or training Open positions unfilled

    Pros

    7 Summer Fridays, some truly great talent throughout

    Cons

    Quite literally the most abusive senior management I've ever had the misfortune of encountering in my entire career. I thought the Devil Wears Prada was a work of fiction. It's real here. Coty is truly a mean girls club. I witnessed incessant bullying that bordered on (and at times was) outright abuse. Leading by fear is the norm. I was encouraged to do so as well. I left after a short while because I couldn't in good conscious stay here. The money wasn't worth my dignity. Coty isn't worthy of the many talented people here.

    Job Seeker Beware

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - High profile company name on your resume, but the stock has been declining. - Ability to say you work for a company associated with high profile luxury brand names. - Located in the Empire State Building - nice office building environment.

    Cons

    - Very toxic culture where senior leadership encourages blame and verbal bullying. As a result it fosters an environment where cross-functional teams are always “CYA” and creativity is diminished. When the environment is very toxic and people are scared that they will be criticized creativity cannot flourish. No one listens, they just talk and hold big meetings to hear themselves speak. - Teams get very defensive, rigid, and execute “in-the-box thinking” instead of trying to be collaborative and problem solve out of fear that they will be thrown under the bus in group meetings or their idea will not be liked by the VP or SVP. - Teams are very stretched because of the lack of strategic direction which results in a lot of “churn” and because senior management is not supportive it doesn’t motivate them to problem solve and figure out solutions. - Marketing leaders are not strategic which results in wasted resources. Coty has a lot of resources (research and data systems), but because of the culture they do not maximize the resources and end up wasting money and time. ADVICE TO JOB SEEKER: - Reach out to past Coty employees via LinkedIn and CEW to hear about their experience. People want to help and they will tell you the truth. - Titles are inflated and do your research before accepting a job. - Ask HR directly about the glassdoor reviews and what the company engagement scores are.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. Brand portfolio could be exciting.

    Cons

    Senior management top heavy. Continually cut budgets. Huge pressure on making miracles happen without the tools to do so.

    Arrogance with nothing to back it up

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    7 Fridays off during the summer. A few other benefits

    Cons

    First, management doesn't know what they're doing. In the last 10 years, the company has not had one year where they overperformed expectations. They've also botched multiple mergers. Since the P&G merger, they've handled it so well, the stock price has been cut in half. The second (and worse) part is that it's managed with a level of European arrogance that goes beyond any kind of stereotype. All VPs and above got there by a) moving to Europe and b) finding new ways to condescend to everyone. If you like commanding everyone around you to put square pegs in round holes, you have a future in Coty senior management. Finally, once they get you, bonus' are tied to company performance and they're stingy with raises, so I have never gotten my full bonus in over 10 years. Finally, if you're American, you can come to Coty, but keep your resume updated. In a recent meeting, a senior manager gloated about how all the jobs he moved out of America and how he expects more to come.

    All over the place

    Pros

    Generally decent resources i.e. Budget, technology, training etc. Can however be quite corporate for corporates sake (many initiatives are clearly right out of a Harvard business review vs. built on true needs of an employee)

    Cons

    Constant change and upheaval. Lack of strategic direction. Middle management is inadequate and therefore Senior management gets involved in decisions they shouldn't need to = too many cooks in the kitchen. No discernible culture expect for an every man for himself mentality.

    Not good

    Aug 29, 2017 - Manager in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Nothing special compared to other places but the Summer Fridays are nice. The culture used to be decent but it is very different now.

    Cons

    Senior Management is not doing a good job. A lot of buzzwords flying around but nothing to really help us or our middle management navigate the changes they want to make. Morale is bad...periodic 'pep rallies' are transparently shallow and insincere. Good long time employees are leaving or being forced out. A lot of unkept promises. No strategic vision or guidance by senior leadership...at least nothing useful is shared with the lower levels. Our R&D has been decimated. They have been left swimming in chaos due to some really questionable personnel changes. Old processes were tossed without having reasonable replacements. Priorities change constantly. It is scary to see how demoralized those who remain have become. There is an odd senior management driven selection/process in grooming entry level management candidates that leaves out the middle management. Coty expects Herculean efforts and time commitment acceptable for a short term push to continue indefinitely. It is not unusual for them to assign special tasks that require almost full time effort and you still have your regular job and responsibilities. When you are done, don't expect recognition or appreciation for the extra work. Instead you will be beat up about some areas of the regular job that slipped during that period. Even the most Coty focused and dedicated people are burned out. People I relied on to be encouraging or positive during down times are feeling helpless and discouraged. It is not a good place to be right now. I am definitely looking elsewhere.

    Senior Management better get focused on the culture an.d organization or they won't have any employees left.

    Pros

    Huge potential with the portfolio of brands from Coty and P&G Summer Fridays

    Cons

    The merger has been a challenge for all employees from both Coty and P&G. In most departments, the Coty systems and approaches are 10+ years behind P&G. Unfortunate, culturally this is an acquisition, not a merger and the Coty leadership has little openness to. some of the progressive and strategic ideas from P&G. "That is not how we do it at Coty". Employees are receiving little or conflicting direction or support from management which continues to erode morale. Employees are working long hours in NY only to find a new direction the next day. It is all about the bottom line and there is no strategy or design analysis on how the work will get done with the people reduction. Some of the new leaders are puppets to Senior Management and will say or do whatever they need. HR seems to look the other way.
