    I worked at American Vogue part-time

    Pros

    The best reason to work for American Vogue is for the people. Everyone is inspiring and everything is new, I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    Cons

    There where no cons, however if you don't like long hours I don't think this would be the right job for you.

    I worked at American Vogue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Assistants, upper management and interns are all incredibly nice, smart, friendly and very professional.

    - I built some great professional relationships with staff and interns

    - I had the opportunity to complete some once and a lifetime tasks, learn how the magazine is run and the structure in the office.

    - Opportunity to work with numerous experienced professionals who were excited and eager to teach and share their knowledge with interns.

    Cons

    - Unfortunately, I was not assigned to the best supervisor.

    - My supervisor was incredibly argumentative, unorganized, and somewhat confrontational with me.

    - She did not use good communication, problem solving, or decision making skills when managing me.

    - I did a lot of assistant type work for her (which was a fantastic learning experience for me) but it bothered me that it showed how unorganized she was when working with me specifically. I expect employees at Vogue to try and figure out certain things out on their own, analyze certain situations before assuming things, all before calling their interns at home. Its unfortunate that she was the only employee who worked this way.

    - I wish I could have spent a lot more time with the other staff. They all seemed incredibly organized, prioritized, and not needing to rely on the help (interns) to fix everything. To me, they are all incredibly intellegent individuals. I think it's unfortunate that other industries are not able to see how smart fashion people (mainly Vogue staff) are before passing intellectual judgement. I am very happy to have interned at Vogue and given the opportunity to learn from the professionals I met there.

    - Vogue Magazine is the number one fashion publication in the world for a reason. I was just assigned to a bad supervisor, which happens to many people in all types of work environments and industries. Its an experience, that must be had! :)

    Advice to Management

    Nope! Keep doing what you are doing. No advice for Vogue is needed.

    Pros

    Really nice cafeteria in a well designed space. There are plenty of choices for lunch.

    Cons

    The people who work in middle management are by far the weakest links in the chain.
