I have been working at Condé Nast full-time (more than a year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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.
