    Pros

    Some nice people. Strong sales team.

    Terrible and unethical executive management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Allergan acquisition completely ruined the camaraderie and spirit of the former Skinmedica culture.

    Terrible place to work. They have to bribe people to work there with higher than normal salaries. Very high turnover.

    Pros

    Good pay and decent benefits

    Terrible management and extremely political. It's a place that will make you feel sick every night you come home from work!

    Stop playing political games and backstabbing and work on your product lines!

    Pros

    Top skin care company in the medical channel
    Fastest growing skin care company 6 years in a row
    Purchased by Allergan
    Well organized
    Develop and hire from within
    They look to staff for feedback on process improvements

    Cons

    The company is very large now - you need to advocate for yourself and have a focus
    Financially driven - fall in line or get cut from the team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, it's working.

    I have been working at SkinMedica full-time

    Pros

    Same stuff everyday. Real easy to get a grip on the routine and everyone is more that ready to help you with anything if you need anything.

    Cons

    You at times feel overloaded with work. Saturated with office room politics. Do not expect to be judged on your work alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a better pulse on the morale of your teams. Stop having ten hour days, they only make the week seem longer.

    A combination of wonderful perks and aggressively competitive fellow employees made for a 4 out of 5 stars experience.

    Pros

    Perks that included free cosmeceutical products, fun events, and free aesthetic treatments. As well as the opportunity to build wonderful relationships with clients in the medical arena.

    Cons

    Horribly competitive work environment. Sixty hours work weeks that did not allow for a balanced social life.
