      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.

      Toxic Work Culture

      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.

      Pros

      Paid time off. Summer Fridays/Christmas to New Years, 401 K matching @ 6%

      Cons

      Inflated sense of ego, desire to take over the world with no plan (accept talking points thought up by executives that are out of touch with current changes in the beauty industry), upper management constantly looking to cover their own special interest, middle management that is left to fend for themselves with lack of training and direction, middle management that has been promoted based on their skills at the lower level not by their people management skills, unrealistic goal setting. This toxic work culture will have you scrambling to figure out how to become part of the in-crowd to get where you want to go. It is the ultimate breeding ground for mean girl status. The amazing talent that exists is overlooked and it is hemorrhaging at the seems. Upper management often takes credit for ideas that were not their own or takes too long to implement suggestions. Systems an processes are a complete mess. You will find yourself taking hours to complete a simple task. When you find a way to simplify, you'll get a slap on the wrist. There is a massive lack of communication between organizations. No onboarding process. Low salaries, unequal pay.

      Good people who work hard

      Cons

      Zero guidance from management. They tell you one thing and do another. So much turnover people don't know who to follow. People end up doing their own thing because upper management has no clue.
