Pros

Cool perks like free cosmetics & celebrity events; Super talented senior employees; Assistant job at Conde is kind of like boot camp & really prepares you for a successful career in media; Not many companies compare to Conde as a resume builder

Cons

Crazy long hours & high stress- most mags are understaffed and no one seems to care; Pay is low & it's hard to move up without leaving and coming back

Advice to Management

Try to send at least one assistant home on time per day

    Pros

    - Name recognition & very impressive on resume
    - Get to work for widely known brands in publishing industry
    - You can talk up your job and make yourself seem like a big deal (even if you aren't)
    - Decent pay and benefits
    - Some great people to work with if you have the time to get to know anyone

    Cons

    - Outside offices are a dead zone: really quiet, can get boring, disconnected from main hub in NY, ONLY sales in outside offices (so they are fine places to work if you are looking to go into sales)
    - Everything goes on in NY offices
    - Old appearance of office in general, which was shocking
    - Dirty carpets
    - SLOW computers
    - NO upward mobility whatsoever in satellite offices (assistant and reps ONLY)
    - There are a few nightmares that work there, so watch out for them
    - NO good holiday parties or team building
    - You get an umbrella for Christmas from NY even though it NEVER rains in LA!!!

    Advice to Management

    - Throw more office events and parties, even if you have to pool some of all your T&E just do it to boost morale and make everyone feel VALUED.
    - Stop being divas, you're not that important.
    - There is one person in particular who thrives on drama, gossip, having control over others that puts a damper on office morale and has grown to irritate the majority of people. Very unfortunate and sad to see. It would NEVER happen in NY under the watch of so many more people, even though they can be divas there as well.
    - Keep the GOOD, talented, and genuine people around and employed rather than getting rid of them to make room for more old dinosaurs.
    - Stop thinking everything you do digitally is groundbreaking and revolutionary because it's not and the company has been behind digitally for quite some time and everyone knows it, so talking it up SO much just comes off as humorous.
