      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.
