Freelance Fashion Closet Assistant (Former Employee) says"This is a minimum wage, hourly position. This job literally consists of taking pictures of clothes and putting them into garment bags. It’s not “fashion” and there’s no room to move up. It’s logistical sample trafficking. The closet manager is abusive and downright nasty, I’ve never had a more awful boss. I understand wanting to work in the fashion industry and wanting to become an editor, but this job will not get you there."

Head of Production Branded Content - Hired staff (Current Employee) says"Conde is constantly re-orging. I survived 7 re-orgs in my 2.5 years at the company and it's bonkers every time.

Every new manager wants to bring in his/her own people to build new teams and there is no effort to integrate existing developers who have been performing well, into new projects.no career path. advancement depends on who you know and work for"
Advertising Operations (Former Employee) says"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!!Salary, BenefitsBad Communication with you superiors, Horrible job security"
