    Pros

    Fantastic brands with a rich history of creating thoughtful content. Great benefits and perks. A lot of pride in the company that trickles down through the company.

    Cons

    Support for the digital efforts of the brands can vary depending on a lot of factors, from the interest of the editor in chief or publisher to the revenue stream for ads. It makes it difficult to be innovative if you don't have the tech support to build your vision.

    Lack of smart upper management, lack of digital focus & direction, archaic workflows, systems & technology, work/life balance, culture-wise, everyone is out for themselves and some employees tend to be entitled "know it alls" even though they are very junior

    Culture does not promote work/life balance (depending on where you work).

    Pros

    Condé Nast Entertainment has great talent and people. They care about making amazing content and providing consumers access to videos worth watching. Very forward thinking and innovative.

    Cons

    Condé Nast corporate tends to have a lot of politics which make is a bit difficult to be innovative and move the company forward in the digital industry. they also tend to rehire within the company which keeps the company from hiring better talent from the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people that have not originally worked at Condé Nast. Outside experience will only help Condé Nast acutely grow and not be left behind in the print business.
