      Not diverse or inclusive

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are always lovely and interesting people to meet, free gifts and events, the glamour of walking into Vogue House every day

      Cons

      Poor management with no support or guidance whatsoever Extremely arbitrary performance review Not inclusive or diverse at all; completely degrading & disregarding mental health issues or health issues in general (I was asked how long will my therapy sessions will last and why I'm doing therapy as "I didn't seem to need it") Cliques formed that were being encouraged Racial comments daily In general, extremely toxic environment at least in the department I used to work that wasn't worth at all the "glamour" of working at Condé Nast

      Do Not Work Here

      Pros

      + Most of the ground-level workers are nice to work with + There's a dog Slack channel + You get paid money

      Cons

      + Day-to-day work is mind-numbingly boring. Buckle in for weeks-on-weeks of doing the same thing. + Complete lack of design and product vision. There are such practices as a 'design rota' where each designer takes it in turns to review *everyones'* work. Zero communication or collaboration in teams. It's like they're just taking it in turns to do the washing up. + Managers are awful, some with outright discriminatory behaviour to their workers which is unchecked by HR. If you want people who have no understanding of disabilities this is the place for you. + You will have no voice if you speak out against the status quo. This will be squashed by HR and management + History of classism and racism that has not been acknowledged and still affects how the company is run. Little to no black people in engineering department - even with HQs in two of the most diverse cities, New York and London. + Promotions and pay-rises happen over a glacial period + If you think you'll get to work with the magazines writers you are wrong. These people are siloed off from you. If you are inspired to join based on the good work that some of the writers do for Condé Nast don't expect that to be part of your job. + C-level don't know how to communicate, will send a page long email that could have be a sentence. Embarassing in a content company. + HR is incompetant and lack knowledge in the basics. They defend policy that is dated and only benefits the company and not the people. + All the LGBTQIA+ people I know have left in the last 2 years

      Condé Nasty - toxic environment with selfish, arrogant, fake people

      Oct 22, 2021 - Freelance Writer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They are well known so you get Condé Nast on your resume

      Cons

      Everyone is out for themselves as other reviewers have said. They'll not think twice before throwing you under the bus, absolve themselves of responsibility, and cut off all communication like you're dirt, even when you're not at fault. The worst culture I've ever experienced. Behind the veil of "diversity and inclusivity, and... a respectful working environment" is a dated org full of sanctimonious, arrogant, mean people. I outright REGRET taking this job, it's been damaging to my career in a short time of being here. For the amount of effort and work you put in, what you get in terms of money, and the risks that come with it, it's really not worth it.

      Not what I expected - don't believe the hype

      Oct 6, 2021 - Ad Solutions in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The possible name on your resume, unfortunately because of the technology and tools you'll have access to, it wouldn't get you very far in the industry.

      Cons

      Culture: It is and does feel like a very old 'legacy' print company, which comes with micro management, an outdated style of leadership and quite a big gap in age ranges. Constant changes with no apparent structure and a lot of politics. Leadership is weak with no authority or support one should expect in 2021.
