I have been working at Condé Nast full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great perks, good experience, working with some of the brightest minds in the industry, plenty of opportunities for growth, people here are nice and stylish. you are the crème de la crème of the industry- conde opens a lot of doors. Work is challenging but in a good way.

Cons

sucks to be reporting negative numbers every month, business model still relies heavily on print revenue, management reluctant to change (ie new technologies, innovation...etc), pay sucks especially for entry-level employees- working long hours but management refuses to pay them OT which is SO illegal. Cafeteria has great food but so overpriced.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your eyes, look around - the world is changing. CN cannot rely on the legacy and the fame it established decades before...change is crucial for success. Also, pay your employees more- instead of throwing lavish and fancy / useless events and stuff.

    Pros

    The best editors and writers in the business work here, and the corporate structure is maybe the most stable and well-run in the industry.

    Cons

    The corporate management is far removed from the decisions made in editorial, which means that investments come slowly and often for obscure reasons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more aggressiveness in pursuing a portfolio strategy on the web, as opposed to centralized management that creates a lack of differentiation and voice among the various web properties
