    Pros

    One of the global leaders in Beauty (Fragrances specifically), creates a big advantage with retailers and distributors with the large portfolio of preferred brands that partners want to list in their stores or customers

    Lack of flexibility with the Fashion House (Brand License) to adapt or implement localized strategies for the market.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    The only pros are free products (in mass and prestige brands) and summer hours. Only come here if the opportunity is a step up in your career - this is not a place you'll want to stay for long. Be prepared to be very unhappy for the duration. One more pro: the location is prime and the office is pretty. But honestly, I'm just reaching.

    Cons

    Coty has a toxic culture full of snakes who have zero people skills. Watch your back as nobody can be trusted, even if they're on your own "team." There is no proper training or worklife balance if you work on a mass brand. HR doesn't exist. Leadership doesn't exist. When someone leaves the company, it's like they fell off the face of the earth and nobody talks about them again - very strange. The place is a mess that it almost seems like a social experiment.
