    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.

    No loyalty

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    A work life balance, and flexible schedule

    Cons

    Company couldn’t get products to clients, lots of out of stock items even when the product just launched. They only care about your numbers, and not how much you’ve turned the business around. No training with upper management.

    Total Mess!

    Nov 7, 2017 - Account Executive

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Coty had it good before the merger. It was promising to see it grow. Because the way it was working they were able to acquire all this other companies. Great big family that supported and mentored one another. Good benefits and perks. Good life work balance. That was then...

    Cons

    Now is a big hot mess! They sifted through a lot of good people and let them go. Kept the yes sir yes ma’am without a back bone, and hired buddies and good friends with no heavy experience and gave them huge salaries. Too many chiefs not enough Indians... they cut budgets where and when its most needed... no clear directions and making them up as they go, so it changes constantly. Heads butting in upper management. The few original people that are still inside are very unhappy and the new ones barely keeping afloat. Though in paper there’s structure, no one follows it and there’s disrespect among the ranks. They’re losing ground and respect with their business partners, and their peer companies are too happy to seeing them fail.

    Coty not like it used to be

    Apr 12, 2017 - Manager in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Summer Fridays - Week between Xmas and New Year off - Discount on some product - Generally speaking, nice coworkers

    Cons

    - The focus is on the bottom line without regard for employees - 3rd or 4th round of consolidations/layoffs since I've been with the company in 5 years - Upper management is a mess - Lack of focus on innovation - It was a much better place to work several years ago before going public

    Pros

    -Summer Fridays -Brand Portfolio -Office Location

    Cons

    Coty was at a much better place before the merger. Since then every aspect of the company seems to be getting worse by the day. -Lack of communication which leads to duplicated work -Zero strategy -Constant urgent projects and emails -Terrible systems -No training or onboarding process -Extremely high turn over rate -Highly unprofessional leadership Upper management in my division leaves little to be desired. Their vision changes daily, they have no direction, and are just terrible people overall. The merger has indeed been a tough one, but that is no excuse for leadership to treat their employees disrespectfully. One of the directors screams in his teams faces and threatens to fire them if they don't do a project. The SVP holds once a month pep rallies, making statements such as "we're a team; we're in this together" yet in reality promotes a "you should be grateful to even have a job here" culture. This all in turn has produced a very toxic work environment with an extremely low employee morale. I truly believe that this will be a great company to work for in a few years but at the moment it is too chaotic.

    Roller coaster ride, never a boring moment in 6+ years.

    Pros

    Nice people, good pay, good benefits, global company with many locations.

    Cons

    Upper management can be scatterbrained. Lots of good teachers and philosophizers throughout leadership but the same people have trouble when it comes to coming up with how to do or manage the work and resources. Also a complete lack of motivation to develop or grow employees.

    Revolving Door Policy is the worst kept secret

    Jan 8, 2013 - Administrative Assistant in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Discount on products (limited and/or hard to get certain products).

    Cons

    It's who you know, not what you know. Only "whites" get promoted to management positions. Some upper management are racist. Budget cuts means you doing three/four jobs but still getting one pay check. No appreciation. No bonus or raise. No matter how hard you work, you review will only be average (my manager said that's normal). Rules and polices are not company wide, but targeted for people they do not like (to make you unhappy and leave).
