    Great resources! Having Conde Nast on your resume can open many doors. Good employee performance benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of management layers. Working long hours is not uncommon.

    Pros

    Conde' Nast is the premier print publishing firm in the world, and it's poising to really transform itself into a media company with online interactive content, and various other platforms. Because it's a successful company in its field, people want to work there to pad their resume. The summer hours are a major perk, half day Friday's. Also, they pay for parking for the Wilmington office.

    Cons

    If you work in the Shared Services Center, depending on your manager, beware of favoritism. It does even extend to the directors. In addition, there is no room for movement. When a position opens, management already has someone in mind for it, and only "opens" it to feign that everyone has a shot, but they know who's going to fill it. HR has a fast turnover, so it was barely ever present in the Wilmington office. Also, the pay is below market average, and up until the Great Recession, that was ok, because the benefits were really great, but now co-pays and deductibles are really high, only reducing those pay checks more.

    Advice to Management

    Get an HR person based in Wilmington. Without one constantly on premise, employees are deterred from reporting the true nature of what is going on in the office.

    Pros

    Honestly, my time there was the most disgusting "professional" experience I've ever endured. I can say that having this company on my resume was the 'Pro' but I seriously want to forget I ever stepped foot in there. So I guess the pro was that I learned that all that glitters isn't gold and the horrid reputation alias "Conde Nasty" wasn't created by just 1 disgruntled employee.

    Cons

    Okay, so where do I start? Here goes: - micromanaging x 1,000 - cliquish unprofessional work environment - unprofessional work culture (including insensitive racial comments) - Unclear direction - Management over projects their vision unto team and anything else suggested isn't considered. - EXTREMELY PRETENIOUS - Ran like a dictatorship - Lack of team building or trust - There seems to be a huge lack of open-minded individuals with a diverse background All in all, this isn't a place to work if you're a kind, open-minded, creative professional.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people you want to cultivate, not those who you want to manipulate.

    Pros

    great benefits; company is finally trying in earnest (and will most likely succeed) to pivot and become a digital company that also prints magazines.

    Cons

    "Contracting" industry - company has been kept afloat for decades by print. bumpy ride pivoting to digital; layoffs; can't afford to/won't offer competitive salaries for junior employes.

    Pros

    Focus on work/life balance. Interesting work. Opportunities to advance at the company. Management communicates with staff.

    Cons

    Print industry challenges have resulted in some unrealistic goals. Benefits aren't as good as they used to be.

    Pros

    Great iconic brands and access to awesome events

    Cons

    Upper management is extremely unprofessional and almost entirely focused on print when digital should be leading the way. It's true, this place is more about what you wear than how hard you work. Many days I felt like I was working at a sorority.
