    I worked at DermStore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is decent, unlimited sick days, free snacks and beverages, laid-back and casual environment

    Cons

    -Oh boy, where do I begin? This company is on their 12th president in the last 10 years, and the current one has no idea what she's doing. She spends money on the most frivolous things and is always talking about her favorite hobby: drinking wine. Upper management has gone south ever since the former CEOleft. -Since Dermstore is owned by Target, most of the current top executives come from there or are friends of someone...

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many people from Target before they end up replacing all of you, hire better CEOs, become more transparent, and keep your office clean. It's filthy and embarrassing.

    I have been working at DermStore full-time

    Pros

    Small agile teams, fun company sponsored activities, ability to have a voice.

    Cons

    Some negativity/pessimism still exists on certain teams.

    Advice to Management

    Dermstore is a great place to work especially right now. The leaders in place are growing the bottom line and empowering the teams to take on more ownership in driving the business. If you want to have really big scope in your job and be able to make an impact at every level it’s a good place to be right now.

    I worked at DermStore full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    For a brief period under former ceo's Abhijit & then Cathy, it was a good place to work and a great turnaround story. They had built a phenomenal culture and helped build dermstore into a marketing powerhouse. Revenue doubled, teams grew, top talent was groomed, and there was a clear direction.

    Cons

    Theres been a slow hammeroage of talent since last year. The president and vp of marketing left last year, the new vp of marketing lasted 6 months. Lots of managers (the doers) are gone across all teams. Direction is unclear and the momentum is eroding.
