I have been working at Condé Nast full-time (more than 5 years)

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.

    Pros

    Dedicated and smart people- some of the best in the publishing business. Above-average product. Working at Conde Nast provides access to great partnerships and talent.

    Cons

    Low compensation. No structured bonus system for non-sales people. Human Resource department can be helpless when looking for talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and compensate your employees- especially those who have been loyal to the company.
