    I have been working at Dollar Shave Club full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a few good eggs.

    Cons

    I've never been in a meeting where something I just said WASNT immediately repeated back to me as if I didn't say it. If you are in leadership, and happened to be a woman, you'll be an exception that proves the rule here: men call the shots. If you are working in certain teams or with certain leaders, this place will bully, gaslight, and dehumanize you. Fair warning creative women... this place is one of those places with a bad rep... this place rewards all the wrong behavior. Sexual harassment is also mishandled. In my time here, every other woman I've known from DSC has complained about sexism behind closed doors, seen their careers completely stall or go backwards somehow, and quit in a huff. This place is toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck...

    Pros

    Very passionate and smart people. Management allows a lot of autonomy. Flexible hours, appreciative management. Nice, friendly people. Entrepreneurial atmosphere.

    Cons

    Lack of standardized processes to get things done. People where many hats. Flying by the seat of their pants in many instances

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing but start implementing some procedures to avoid mistakes and duplication of effort

    Pros

    barista on site
    free lunches on Tuesday
    lots of snacks
    you can sometimes work from home
    exciting projects
    small teams
    lots of responsibility

    Cons

    Lack of motivational leadership
    Not everyone knows what their doing
    personal opinions can sometimes get in the way of seeing someones professional experience/abilities

    Advice to Management

    Motivate and inspire the employees -- moral is low
    hire managers who are in the field and have experience with the products and have managed before

    Pros

    There's an opportunity to learn from some smart people here

    Cons

    Corporate rules and expectations with startup pains. DSC is in the middle of a very slow transition.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and stand by your decisions even if theyre unpopular. So much of the confusion here comes from tiptoeing around sore or confusing subjects.

    I have been working at Dollar Shave Club full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can honestly say that working at Dollar Shave Club has been the best experience in my career thus far. In a short amount of time, I have been able to accomplish multiple initiatives and see my work come to fruition. Things move very quickly here, which keeps every day fresh and exciting. I am given quite a bit of autonomy, which can be challenging at times, but has also allowed me to push myself and grow professionally. It is so great to genuinely feel as though my skill set and career are progressing with each month that passes here.

    Cons

    The leadership has shifted quite a bit since I have started here, which has resulted in several changes in business initiatives. This has been a bit frustrating, but things seem to be straightening out, and either way, I am still learning a TON.

    I worked at Dollar Shave Club full-time

    Pros

    The people are amazing. Everyone is so talented and in it to win it. There have been a lot of changes at the top and I know some people are sad that their friends from the early days have left, but the future looks so great. SO much potential and opportunity. It's like they're starting again under Unilever.

    Cons

    Lots of changes, and lot of movement in teams and leadership. It's hard to keep all the department names and squads right in your head.

    Advice to Management

    Calm down. I think everyone should take an extra week off during the December break. Everyone is working so hard.
