Pros: salary, benefits
Cons: bad communication with you superiors, horrible job security
In the beginning my time at conde nast was a great time i was welcomed with open arms but that quickly changed within the first year, Conde Nast pays employees well and good benefits, But going into Conde Nast expect to hit the ground running! they don't give you anytime to develop and if you don't catch on in a few months time they will prepare to fire you, there system is very difficult to learn, and they only give you a few months to master it .So if hired by Conde Nast you should treat it as a contract to hire environment, the managers pick a lot of favorites, Communication is very bad with the managers , and if the managers have a problem with your work performance they will go to the directors first behind your back instead of talking to you face to face to fix it before. Horrible organization you really don't know who does what are what your responsible for, so if you do a certain amount of work no one really keeps track of it but if one mistake happens its all on you. While i was here they fired the head of the department just because, The directors only speak to you if your in trouble or make a mistake my old job i had weekly or bi weekly meetings with my directors so certain issues never took place. If your in trouble or struggling with something they will book a lot of different meetings making it seem that they want you to do better but there already planning your exit within a week,if there is a problem or you make a mistake this is a company that will fire you before giving you a opportunity to correct that mistake so please be careful!!
