    Pros

    The only positive from working at Conde Nast is that you do learn a lot b/c they generally keep giving you more and more work until you break.

    Cons

    Too many managers that are constantly defending their existence. They all know that there are too many managers with too high of pay and they also know that they hardly do anything and rely heavily on their low-wage workers to do all the work for them. When mistakes happen b/c they never check their staffs work, it is never their fault b/c they never do anything themselves. Long story short, everything spends too much time defending their jobs, not enough time working together and everything has attitude and is a snake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the number of managers/executives (for example, the facilities dept does not need 3-4 of them) Hold managers more accountable and lighten up on the lower paid employees (the ones that do the real work).
