Advice to Management

Pay your talent what you think they're worth, and maybe you'll retain good writers. Otherwise you'll just be stuck with interns who can't spell.

    Pros

    Beautiful building, beautiful people. Times Square is an amazing location, and I've always been proud to work there. You will meet some interesting personalities at Conde Nast, and of course there are the free clothes and makeup. I should also add that despite Conde Nast's reputation as a cut-throat place, it's also pretty accepting in that there is no sexism, racism, or homophobia.

    Cons

    A lot of people are unhappy here. It's true. Whether they're dissatisfied with their salaries or the fashion/publishing industry as a whole (or perhaps it's the fact that even senior level people work more than 8 hours a day), people do not seem happy to be working at Conde Nast, even though theoretically it should be everyone's dream company. People cry, snap at each other, get sacked, send passive aggressive emails.

    Advice to Management

    Psst, senior editors: your assistants spend the day either stressing out or sending each other emails about how much they hate you or who is going to be let go next.

    Pros

    Prestige, smart people, looks good on resume

    Cons

    Cutthroat, office politics can be pretty vicious

    Advice to Management

    Anonymous 360 degree reviews of upper management could probably greatly help weed out those who are undeserving of their positions.
