Pros

You'll never run out of new things to learn, ask around a bit and someone is doing something new.

If you work hard consistently, it won't go unnoticed but you may have to be patient.

There have been some really smart people both past and present, there's a lot of really good solid code to learn from.

Cons

There's so many stakeholders that every project will need extra time for final sign off, and someone will always ignore approval request until your project is nearly out the door.

Despite efforts to get everyone talking, someone is always off doing their own thing and duplicating efforts.

Stop dismissing what exists in favor of a brand new thing. Not everything that's old needs to be replaced. And at the opposite end, be willing to get rid of some of the old stuff. It's a website, not a historical society.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Double the timelines when developing your core systems or doing big projects and it'll pay off in the long run. Don't let ad sales dictate so many project timelines, it's better to take the extra time to do it right rather than cutting corners.

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time

    Pros

    Condé Nast has a great corporate culture and benefits. Lunch at the $30 million cafeteria by superstarchitect Frank Gehry is an unforgettable an experience.

    Cons

    Change comes slowly, especially in times of economic difficulty. Condé Nast is doing a very good job of delivering premium content from print publications onto mobile devices, but some internal business processes and technologies need to be refreshed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to others outside your inner circle who only tell you what they think you want to hear.

    Pros

    Summer Fridays, loose dress code

    Cons

    Devil Wears Prada is absolutely real. Had to ask to go to the bathroom... got yelled at for getting coffee. It's an unreal and unethical place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please adhere to ethical violations
