I have been working at Coty full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some good people, I made some life-long friends there. Working with fragrance brands can be fun and creative.

Cons

Can be super cut-throat. You are not always judged on what you know, but sometimes who you know. There is immense pressure to be perfect - small mistakes are made to be huge deals. It's nearly impossible to get a promotion when you ask - it's all about timing and being in the right place at the right time.

Advice to Management

Have a more straight forward career advancement plan - people are extremely frustrated staying in the same position for 3 years.

    I worked at Coty full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work for a relatively well known company in fashion/cosmetics/consumer products industry. Benefits are great. If you are lucky you can land in a place where you will be rewarded, appreciated and promoted (but this is rare)

    Cons

    Very political, back stabbing, and rumors are easily spread. Some managers are not good at their jobs or managing their subordinates. Some below management people are not good at their jobs as well. MANY employees there last less than 3 years due to the bad work environment and many people are unhappy.

    MY ADVICE - any person looking to take an offer from Coty, seriously read the reviews you are seeing and decide whether you can deal with an atmosphere that may destroy your career

    Advice to Management

    Obviously, the apple does not fall from the tree…Unless the serious issues with your management is taken care of all employees will leave
