      Toxic Work Culture

      4 Mar 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.
