Former Employee - Intern in New York, NY
Former Employee - Intern in New York, NY

I worked at Condé Nast

Pros

Great name, prestigious, will open other doors for you in the future, get to learn about the corporate world,learn about the magazine business

Cons

very rude staff, not much room for growth, VERY long hours, almost slave work, no positive reinforcement, no hands-on work, getting coffee, isnt the point of an internship to LEARN?...you dont learn ANYTHING, unless getting coffee/lunch/photocopies is "learning".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

let interns do more hands-on work, constructive criticism is essential...but so is positive. Upper management aka, the ASSISTANT TO THE EDITOR you intern for who is in their 20s could be a BIT nicer. Interns are enthusiastic and dedicated to learning, we are there to help YOU but deserve respect.

    Pros

    Prestigious magazine/company, a way to get your foot in the door, etc

    Cons

    No compensation, long work days (sometimes well over 12 hours a day), poor treatment, mind-numbing work (such as sorting bins after bin of mismatched designer socks for weeks), etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your interns.

    Pros

    Conde Nast has a great benefits package, especially if you start out and work your way up through the company.

    Movement within seems to be fairly common.

    Cons

    As any large company is, it is very corporate with little room to color outside the lines.
