I have been working at Condé Nast full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great perks, good experience, working with some of the brightest minds in the industry, plenty of opportunities for growth, people here are nice and stylish. you are the crème de la crème of the industry- conde opens a lot of doors. Work is challenging but in a good way.

Cons

sucks to be reporting negative numbers every month, business model still relies heavily on print revenue, management reluctant to change (ie new technologies, innovation...etc), pay sucks especially for entry-level employees- working long hours but management refuses to pay them OT which is SO illegal. Cafeteria has great food but so overpriced.

Advice to Management

Open your eyes, look around - the world is changing. CN cannot rely on the legacy and the fame it established decades before...change is crucial for success. Also, pay your employees more- instead of throwing lavish and fancy / useless events and stuff.

    I have been working at Condé Nast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best editors and writers in the business work here, and the corporate structure is maybe the most stable and well-run in the industry.

    Cons

    The corporate management is far removed from the decisions made in editorial, which means that investments come slowly and often for obscure reasons

    Advice to Management

    Need more aggressiveness in pursuing a portfolio strategy on the web, as opposed to centralized management that creates a lack of differentiation and voice among the various web properties

    I have been working at Condé Nast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the most forward-thinking editors and writers, and they strive to always be producing better content.

    Cons

    cutthroat environment, where the biggest personalities are often rewarded over the people who actually execute the creative vision. No one wants to hear about problems until they are ready to blame someone for them.`
