    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    As an intern I don't have much to say for cons.

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    A 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 ManagementAdvice

    Could be more flexible on work from home arrangements and job sharing.

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

    Pros

    As 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    It would've been nice to pitch in ideas for the website or magazine.
