    Pros

    Company has great resources, nice, talented people

    Cons

    Some people at the more prominent titles (though not many I've met) do have the "attitude" that was Conde's infamous reputation for a long time.
    Too many re-orgs and a haphazard process of implementing.

    Advice to Management

    When re-organizing or downsizing, do more to make the process better; consider employees' feelings and situations.

    Pros

    Lived through Conde hey days—incredible place to work, with some brilliant editorial minds. They took the world for granted, unfortunately.

    Cons

    Condenet was in a different building, which indicates the company's head-in-sand stance on the internet; it was easy to see the iceberg coming for the Titanic.

    Focus on the readers.
