I worked at Condé Nast full-time

Pros

Pay is usually higher
Challenging environment
Great perks at higher-management level

Cons

Competitive in destructive way
Untrustworthy coworkers out for personal gain
Non-existent team effort in sales divisions
"Devil Wears Prada" isn't too off-base...

Advice to Management

While competition breeds results for the stars of a department, it would be prudent to foster a more trustworthy environment to promote overall success.

    I have been working at Condé Nast as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Conde Nast is a great company to be an employee at. They take great care of their full time staff. The name carries significant weight and and prestige within the industry. It is a great place to make many valuable connections.

    Cons

    Freelancers are not as well taken care of as staffers, but still worth the experience. It can very much be about who you know. You have to have a thick skin to work with some of the very strong personalities there.

    I worked at Condé Nast as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Prestige of company.
    -Opportunities to work on photoshoots, interact with Vogue employees.
    -The other interns and my supervisor were all great - hardworking, dedicated, and fun people.
    -Exciting environment.

    Cons

    -Long hours.
    -Paid by a small stipend for the amount of hours you put in.
    -A lot of running around/errands.

    This was a great experience as a student living New York, but as a career it's low-paid with long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Interns are largely ignored.
