Current Employee - Marketing Intern in New York, NY
Current Employee - Marketing Intern in New York, NY

I have been working at Condé Nast as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Stipend
Exposure to industry
Work under/for people with strong leadership skills
Can meet some nice people

Cons

Interns are treated like interns- not valued as employees or people there to learn
A lot of menial tasks like shipping, expense reports, sorting closets
Org chart and hierarchy is very apparent, hard to feel valued
Not given a lot of opportunity to show your worth, you really have to fight for it and take initiative
Kind of superficial culture

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give interns a chance, let them feel valued and appreciated, and teach them things.

    Change the culture to work together as a company and not separate brands

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

    Former Employee - Senior Web Producer in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Senior Web Producer in New York, NY

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time (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?
