    There are many cons.

    Pros

    - Work culture is probably the best thing at TV. The team is young, fun and energetic; you definitely feel that they want to make a difference and want to work together to keep the Teen Vogue name thriving.

    - Opportunity to explore and grow within the Conde Nast brand.

    -Brand is evolving with technology and social media so the culture and work is fresh and experimental which makes for a fast pace and upbeat environment.

    Cons

    - As a sales assistant, the pay is not enough to support yourself in today's NYC.

    - Very administrative role, so sometimes you feel that all your education has gone to waste to printing and filing.

    Advice to Management

    - The role of sales assistant should not exceed more than a year and a half, as at this point the role should evolve due to the skills and knowledge acquired.

    "Amazing Internship"

    I worked at Teen Vogue as an intern

    Pros

    I never experienced the harsh Conde Nast environment others have described. I was given real writing work, made great contacts, and never felt abused.

    Cons

    The hours can be long but I never felt that they were never excessive. Also the lack of pay wasn't great.

    I worked at Teen Vogue (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This was not an internship to solely get coffee for the editors. It was a real hands on experience. There was a lot of work to get done, but without fail when the clock hit 6 pm I was told I can pick up where I left off tomorrow and go home. I learned valuable skills and how the web department of a magazine works. It's a shame that the internship program is no longer around because people felt uncompensated. Of course, it would be nice to get paid for any internship, but the experience you gain is worth the time.

    Cons

    I thoroughly enjoyed everything about my 5 months at Teen Vogue

    I have been working at Teen Vogue as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the Bookings and Photography department and loved all the people I worked with. They were able to make it a fun work environment that was able to keep a realistic perspective on the work we were all doing.

    Cons

    Long hours with little recognition is a con to any fashion or editorial position that you'll encounter. If you are working in this industry you should love what you are doing because the financial benefits are few and far between

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if HR was less of a barrier and upper level management had more of a say directly in who gets hired and how fast that can happen

    I worked at Teen Vogue as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    to be able to put it on my resume, everyone that sees it respects me a little more that i actually survived this internship

    Cons

    no room for growth, everyone is sad and miserable, was never paid my stipend, unfriendly atmosphere. my currently employer had to run a background check when i was hired and teen vogue couldn't even confirm i had worked there!

    Advice to Management

    probably treat their interns better since they are the ones that do the grunt work.

    I worked at Teen Vogue as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -get to see some celebrities in the office
    -get a real feel of the inner workings of a major publication
    -get to be around a lot of amazing fashion

    Cons

    -like basically every other fashion internship there are a lot of errands and no pay (now there may be a stipend though, but still it's minimal).
    - fashion attitudes

    Advice to Management

    let the interns do more important and less mundane tasks instead of always running errands

    Pros

    Obviously it's well-known and is a good name for your resume; location is great, right in the middle of Times Square; short walk from Port Authority for commuters

    Cons

    I was completely taken advantage of at Teen Vogue. I realize that I was an intern, but the day I got there, they completely changed my internship and reassigned me to an internship I didn't even apply for because someone had left the company and it switched everything up (which really shouldn't have affected me, but it's a long story). I was completely disrespected, treated extremely rudely, and was expected to do personal errands such as fetch coffee, lunch, and shoe repairs for an employee (not company related). All those tasks are for a personal PAID assistant, not an intern. I didn't expect to be treated like gold, I know I was an intern, but it was ridiculous how rude people were.

    Advice to Management

    Have some respect for your interns, it could come back to be you in the ass one day. There's no need to be so rude. You pick clothes for a girl's magazine. Grow up.
