    I have been working at Condé Nast full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You work with interesting and highly talented people to put out the most compelling editorial content and magazines in the world. You can be proud of the end product we all work to create.

    Cons

    Facebook and Google this is not. It depends on your department, but generally there are not a lot of perks in the workplace. Conde Nast is notorious for underpaying and overworking you, so be ready work hard. Looks great on the resume though.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who work hard.

    Pros

    Fantastic reputation and prestige. The access is incredible, and the name on your resume will help no matter where you go (well almost).

    Cons

    Creative people managing each other—really badly (and sometimes bitchily). No upward mobility and the attitude is "a million people would die for this job."

    I worked at Condé Nast as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great content and great brand equity- so much more potential

    Cons

    There was a reticence to embrace the reality and impact of digital media and a focus on print (which I feel is experiencing a slow and painful demise)

    Advice to Management

    The attitude that "everyone wants to work here, we don't have to change" might not be the wisest attitude with which to move forward. Good people will eventually leave.


  8. Difficult place to work if you're not a trust fund baby or a socialite.

    I worked at Condé Nast as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Network building, access to the goings on of the magazine behind the scenes

    Cons

    Doesn't pay much for living in NYC. Long hours. Some nice people, but many are difficult to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to manage your organization by hiring actual employees instead of taking in hoards of unpaid interns.

    I worked at Condé Nast as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My experience at Conde Nast was a great one! At the end of the day it truly is what you make of it. With the lack of structure, it can be easy to just get caught up in completing tasks without any feeling of true growth. However, if proactive, you can easily network around different departments and make the most of your internship. I found that everyone I interacted with was extremely helpful. Also, the work environment was very relaxed and fun making for an enjoyable and different day each morning I came in.

    Cons

    Internships are non-paid, however if you can make it work it is definitely worth the experience and relationships. There is also a lacking of a structured internship training program.
