    I worked at Dermalogica full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Skin care education, fantastic managers, good sales support, good benefits, lots of incentives and contests to keep you motivated. Great headquarters.

    Cons

    Company is restructuring post acquisition by a larger company... the job security is not very stable. Not enough educators to support the field

    I worked at Dermalogica part-time

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my job, what the company stands for, the products but the upper management needs some training on allowing their employees to have a work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not getting paid for a lot of the hours worked. Being a part time employee getting paid for roughly 20 hours per week but between calls, emails, texts and driving time working well over 40 hours per week. Also, having a traveling job where you are not getting paid mileage, gas or for time spent on the road.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for time worked and mileage. Allow for time with family without calling, texting and emailing without needing immediate responses.

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

    Pros

    The people you get to work for are by far the best in the industry and it's great to work for a company where the owners are actively involved and treat their employees like they are part of the family.

    Cons

    The newly hired CEO was starting to make changes that made working at the company much like working in any other corporate environment.

    Advice to Management

    The owners and founders of the company should continue to reign as the leaders and influencers rather than passing over the authority to a corporate-minded CEO.

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

    Pros

    Product allocation #1
    Health benefits (prior to buyout)
    The products as well as the educational support for accounts
    Paid holiday and vacation days

    Cons

    Company does not value employees overall well being or encourage life/work balance even w the "benefit" of a fitness reimbursement.
    Compensation is poor in relation to base salary and what the position entails.
    No support from upper Mgmt in day-to-day operations.

    I could go on and on...

    Be consistent and treat employees with more respect
