    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to know so much about the world of fashion that a normal person can't even comprehend that much knowledge...In general, great people, great location salaries are not bad.

    Cons

    Management needs an overhaul in there understanding of Human capital. other than a couple of people everyone else is nothing more than toilet paper, can be thrown out any time.. salaries are good but no parity. Purposefully don't let the process run the company and everything runs on whims and fancies of a couple of people.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be Human and please try to run the company on the process .. I am if you don't do it London will..

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time

    Pros

    Good exposure to luxury industry and a great brand to have on your CV

    Cons

    Not a great paymaster and not much of employee benefits. People working in the organization since many year don't want to accept new ones. Highly political and they are not upto speed with new age media.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to start interacting with the junior most employees and not just with the publishers to understand grassroot level challenges.

    "Great place to work if you don't need the money"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Condé Nast full-time

    Pros

    1. Decent work hours 2. Great work-life balance 3. Great place for networking 4. Chance to work with the who's who in the business 5. Great brand name

    Cons

    1. Horrendous pay (you need to be an ace-ace negotiator to get your worth in money) 2. No ownership of work - too many people with too little responsibility involved in everything 3. A few (thankfully less in number) really stuck-up people who can make life miserable for those around them 4. Leverages the brand name (to the point of manipulation sometimes) to get employees to work in unimaginably low pay

    Advice to Management

    The brand is awesome, the work is awesome, just treat your people well and with respect.
