    You get to work with the most talented people in the business, and the resources you're given to create amazing work are unparalleled.

    It's a dying industry. This world no longer exists the way it once did.

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Culture and people are amazing

    Cons

    Management overworked staff and production team was never given recognition for their efforts

    Advice to Management

    Look at the body of work and skill set of employees to determine who should stay or go during layoffs, not just the positions you want to delete. Especially when a directors warns management about a manager in his department for two years and nothing is done about it.

    Pros

    Honestly there aren’t any... :(

    Cons

    Minority’s should look for employment elsewhere. Women, LGBTQ and people who aren’t white will never get ahead here. They pay minority’s less money, heap more work on them and harass and belittle them. A quick google search about sexual misconduct and Condé Nast will yield a surprising number of factual articles regarding these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Shut it down, you’ve lost the battle already. This isn’t 1980 or even 2000 anymore. The S.I Newhouse is rolling over in his grave with disgust seeing how his empire has been run into the ground.

    Pros

    Young environment, good benefits, good to have on your resume, prepares you for a career in media.

    Cons

    There are barely any opportunities to advance from this position. Even though there are incredible events and content creation happening at the company, doesn't get any recognition and does not get to participate in that. Management is constantly switching gears and priorities. The pay is a HUGE pay gap between sales planners/account management and sales reps.
