Cosmopolitan Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Cosmopolitan is an American monthly fashion and entertainment magazine for women, first published based in New York City on March 1886. It was formerly titled The Cosmopolitan. Cosmopolitan magazine is one of the best-selling magazines and is directed mainly towards a female audience.[1] Jessica Pels is the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine.[2] The magazine was first published in March 1886 in the United States as a family magazine; it was later transformed into a literary magazine and, since 1965, has become a women's magazine.

Unhappy consumer Kelly K. said: So I grew up reading Cosmopolitan magazines. Haven't read them for a while so I randomly picked one up today. I couldn't help but notice the size of the magazine shrunk about 3/4 the size it used to be. I immediately flipped through the pages to find the "cosmo confessions" - they weren't there! This magazine is just boring and not worth the price.

Julia A. wrote: Cosmopolitan is full of terrible context. The editors pick horrendous topics and the writing quality is subpar.

Former Employee - Front Desk Agent says

"I worked at The Cosmopolitan part-time Cons: Short Staffed consistently Room to move up with the company low"

Former Employee - Surveillance Investigative Analyst says

"I worked at The Cosmopolitan full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Promotions in surveillance dept are given to young people w little to no experience and or "yes men". You're not allowed to think critically. The director was constantly giving more "busy work" to fluff their numbers instead of doing actual investigations or watching things live."

Former Employee - Front Desk/Autograph Lounge Agent says

"I worked at The Cosmopolitan full-time for more than 3 years Cons: It's a very politics-driven environment. If you're not liked, they will let you fail and replace you with whoever they have in mind. Front desk - overly focused on policy to win every avenue in disputes with customers. kind of a "CYA" culture. Dozens of procedures that make checking in feel more like signing a mortgage. They've made some discriminatory decisions towards guests. Marriott/VIP - the shortcoming here is that most of the people working here are focused more on workplace drama. There are a few people here who are close to management or someone up above so they'll get preferential treatment. don't dare to say anything critical about them or they'll be out to get you."

Former Employee - Cage Cashier says

"I worked at The Cosmopolitan full-time Cons: Very very bad environment........ Run"

Former Employee - Pit says

"I worked at The Cosmopolitan full-time for more than 8 years Cons: Everything has changed. Worst place to work for"

Former Employee - Sales Manager says

"I worked at The Cosmopolitan full-time for less than a year Cons: Little to no diversity, unprofessional upper management, lots of unfair treatment to associates based on hear say."

Current Employee - IT Systems Manager says

"I have been working at The Cosmopolitan full-time for less than a year Cons: 1) Under-qualified personnel can make it difficult at times to get work done efficiently for support and/or projects. 2) Promotions are slim to none, unless you are friends with the VP and/or directors (all 6 of them). 3) Hiring process requires a "Talent" team to like you before you are even considered for an interview and/or hire candidate. 4) A lot of work given for a small group of IT employees, and staff who leave the company are not replaced. 5) Frequent sexual innuendos and harassment lines make the place an uncomfortable environment to work at times. 6) Many employees have moved onto other jobs within a year or two. Anyone else who has been employed for a longer period than that beware of backstabbing."


"I worked at The Cosmopolitan Cons: management and human resources are staffed with people who do not care and are not qualified. This is the most mismanaged place that I have ever seen. To make it worse the favoritism is worse than any place I have been at. They put employees on jobs they are qualified to do and then write them up for their mistakes. Don't file a complaint to human resources about anything because they will not do anything about it but report you to management and then you will have more problems."

Current Employee - Beverage Server says

"I have been working at The Cosmopolitan full-time for less than a year Cons: Terrible systems and processes, onboarding lengthy, Upper Management rude and unaccomplished, no room for growth, poor scheduling, HR do more harm than good"


"I worked at The Cosmopolitan Cons: Terrible. Management team is awful"

Kendrick says

"Not too good, Need improvements"

Jessica Washington says

"I have been a reader of Cosmopolitan for years. I can say a lot for the magazine itself, but maybe not as much for their website. It appears the site shifts focus slightly from Fashion into Celebrity News. Don't get me wrong, there is still plenty of content catering to Cosmopolitan's core audience, but I wish they'd leave all the gossip and unsolicited updates to other gutter press outlets that thrive on them."
