    I worked at Condé Nast full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Good pay scale. High performers were rewarded. They offered a very good work from home program. For the many employees that were laid off (see below) they offered a generous severance package.

    Cons

    The new CIO laid off 90% of IT and outsourced their jobs to India to primarily trainee level people. Those losing their jobs were required to train their replacements.

    Advice to Management

    You did what was necessary for the company to survive the recession. I wish you well.

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on a variety of digital, print and social media projects. Life long friendships established. People are some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    The publishing print industry is hurting therefore jobs are being lost as digital subscriptions are on the rise. Less employees are needed as print magazines fold in favor of digital issues.

    Advice to Management

    Freedom tower HQ move was not the best idea. Move back to 4 Times Square!


  3. Conde Nast was one of the best place I

    Pros

    Huge opportunity for growth within all magazines. Great stepping stone, looks very good on a resume.

    Cons

    Again, it's a big company, so a lot of internal politics and bureaucracy to navigate.

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cafe food is ok Brush shoulders with celebrities if you are into that The WTC building is new Free products and clothes Neighborhood features good food

    Cons

    Conde is politically and culturally bias: All Democrats Work life balance has a high reputation for being poor The company also has a reputation for bullying Its difficult to obtain a creative role at Conde and independent thinking is not encouraged unless you are speaking to elitist values, destructive personalities and gaslighting

    Advice to Management

    Real people need jobs in order to sustain they are not born into wealth and luxury. When you fire real people it hurts them. When you waste talent it hurts honest workers. America was free before liberals told everyone they were being abused by the system and that money magically appears without a job.

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time

    Pros

    The best brands in the world. As a result, very creative people want to work there.

    Cons

    Digital vision murky.Time and time again, the company hired and /or promoted senior-level people with little to no digital skills. Capricious decisions based on how much a brand editor or publisher would complain and escalate to CN president.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more digitally capable staffers in every group: marketing, product, sales.
