    I worked at DermStore full-time

    Pros

    They carry over 700 brands and employees get 20% to 51% off. The dress code is casual. Centrally located easy to shop and go to the gym after or before work.

    Cons

    Favoritism and nepotism is rampant here as well as racism. There is a strong mean girls culture here with lots of bullying and cliquey-ness. There is a really high turnover rate I was there more than a year and in that time there were 3 different presidents. There is no clear direction or company objectives. Everyone employed there is basically pretending to know what they're doing but your main objective is to be...

    Advice to Management

    Target should just dissolve this company and actually absorb it into Target Beauty. I think this company would be better suited in MN near Targets HQ.

    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.
