Solid job but leave if you don't find a patron after a couple years

I worked at Condé Nast full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Good place to spend a couple years, maybe more if you happen to find someone you can hitch your wagon to. The pay's not great, but it's competitive.The work is sometimes interesting, if you wind up in the right groups, and it's hard, but if it's ruining your life, it's your fault, not theirs.

Cons

Get out if you haven't found anyone enthusiastic about promoting you within a couple years; it's not going to happen otherwise. Leaving and coming back sometimes works, though. Regimes come and go, so you've also got to be prepared to bail or ask for more money every time they do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It'd be awesome if the company promoted from within more, but then that makes everyone slightly less disposable, doesn't it?

    Competitive in destructive way
    Untrustworthy coworkers out for personal gain
    Non-existent team effort in sales divisions
    "Devil Wears Prada" isn't too off-base...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While competition breeds results for the stars of a department, it would be prudent to foster a more trustworthy environment to promote overall success.

    I worked at Condé Nast as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the most talented individuals in the industry. Seems to be a big believe in promoting from within.

    Competitive. The limited number of available job openings.
