      Pros

      great building, great snacks, great people to work with and lots of creativity around you!

      Cons

      They could pay better. It's really hard to wake up in the morning and feel enthusiastic when you work the entry-level minimum wage.

      Prestige doesn't pay the bills

      Apr 6, 2021 - Senior Writer/Editor in New York, NY

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Creative and passionate colleagues; encouraged to push the envelope and explore what's new in culture and fashion; dynamic office environment (when we actually worked in the office)

      Cons

      Nonexistent HR, poor management, zero career development. Merit-based raises are not even up for discussion; your reward for working incredibly hard is... staying employed! There is severe pay inequity and gender wage gaps; absolutely no transparency into this, the company works extremely hard to make sure people don't know what their colleagues are paid. As more people get laid-off and teams shrink, workloads double or triple for those who are still at the company. I'm talking 12-14 hour work days, 5 days a week, often weekends—and yet somehow you're never doing enough. During COVID, Conde Nast did not offer a single dollar to help employees purchase laptops or WFH equipment, yet they also have no plans for bringing employees back to 1WTC and their other buildings once people are vaccinated. We've been WFH for over a year now in tiny NYC apartments, and it's their responsibility as an employer to provide a productive environment. This is clearly not a priority—they are trying to downsize the office space and save $ on rent.
