    Intern at The New Yorker

    At the New Yorker (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat offices, great teams.
    It's a really cool place for an internship: they give you interesting work, they give good advice and explain theirs jobs.
    They have special conferences for interns where management from different magazines of the group come and talk about their experience.

    One of the best places to work!

    Marketing Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe benefits are amazing and the corporate culture is fantastic. A great place to work!

    ConsA lot of people have to leave and come back in order to get promoted or get a raise. Not always, but a good number from observation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCould be more flexible on work from home arrangements and job sharing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Amazing Opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAs an intern, you got to learn the ins and outs of what makes a magazine. The experience and the connections made are invaluable. We were all treated well. The staff did not make us go on crazy errand runs in the city. I learned so much and it cemented my dream of going into the magazine industry.

    ConsThe position was unpaid. There were too many interns that at times we were sitting around not doing much. Conde Nast unfortunately decided to end its internship program.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would've been nice to pitch in ideas for the website or magazine.

    Incredible experience

    Public Relations (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsSome of the best people on the planet work here in terms of level of talent and commitment. It's a creative environment where you have lots of room to innovate.

    ConsThe top-down, hierarchical structure can be a bit intimidating for some. The vacation time is stingy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's great to shed the Conde Nasty reputation of yesteryear.

    ProsConde likes to promote from within so there are excellent opportunities for personal growth. Full-time employees have great benefits and there are many perks. The magazines are the best in the industry and the company produces products that the employees can really be proud of.

    ConsThe compensation could be better and there is concern over the future of this industry.
