Life at Condé Nast
At Condé Nast, you will have the opportunity to work with our team of award-winning journalists, editors and designers, industry icons and the best engineers and developers, who together, create and deliver the premium content that is the hallmark of our world-class brands.
We take pride in our forward-thinking dynamic culture that champions diversity and inclusivity, and fosters a respectful working environment.
At the fingertips of every employee are innovative technological tools and access to programs that support professional and personal growth.
At Condé Nast we are a community.
Our vision for our workplace is one that is centered on transparency and respect and with values that bring forward the best in all of us each and every day. We are committed to creating a culture in which diverse voices and perspectives are encouraged and respected, and where all employees are equally supported in developing their careers — where people can truly be themselves and feel they can achieve their best.
Our culture is one of our top priorities and we are focused on implementing people-first policies and programs equitably throughout our global organization. In the past year, we’ve already made significant progress––this includes improving and extending our family leave benefits; stopping the use of traditional NDA agreements in areas related to harassment and nondiscrimination; and making sure that many team members previously classified as contractors were given the opportunity to move into full-time employee positions.
As we continue to invest in systems, tools and processes to strengthen our company, what’s most important is the continued investment in our people.
Compensation and Benefits (for U.S. employees only)
Over the last year, we’ve expanded our benefits offerings and continue to evaluate them to identify opportunities to best support everyone. A few recent enhancements include:
- Domestic Partner Benefit Extensions
- Free Mental Health Services
- Assistance in Refinancing Student Loans
- Long-term Remote Work Pilot
- Extended Bereavement leave
- Extended Parental Leave
- Added Adoption Financial Support
Creating fair and consistent compensation systems and processes is our priority. To best capture the comprehensive way we are looking at our compensation, as well as provide an update to the commitments we’ve made to improve our systems, we are building new systems and job architecture which includes job leveling, ongoing pay equity analysis, ongoing peer-to-peer analysis and more. In the U.S., while we’ve completed an initial review of our compensation structures, we decided to go a few steps further than most companies and complete additional analysis to ensure we get it right.
Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity Data Collection As we assess our diversity and inclusion policies and processes to determine where we need to focus our efforts, we have asked U.S. employees to update and provide diversity data about themselves voluntarily. We plan to use this data to strengthen our recruitment, progression and retention efforts around the globe.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) Employee Resource Groups play an important part in building an inclusive culture that celebrates our employees diversity. Currently, there are five ERGs in the U.S.: The Women’s Network, Pride (LGBTQ+), ACN (Asian American), Conexión (Hispanic/LatinX) and NOIR (Black).
Inclusion Training Mandatory inclusion training program was launched in 2020 in the U.S. and has now been delivered to all of our markets around the globe.
2020 Global D&I Report Our inaugural D&I Report was released last year to best capture our efforts through the first part of 2020. It will be updated with our entire year’s D&I achievements and will include many insights from our global markets.
For markets without an established practice in place, we are launching new review and goal-setting processes so that employees and their managers have open, honest and constructive conversations throughout the year. Goal setting is an essential organizational practice to align business and career goals together with The Condé Code.
Mentorship Our pilot program had more than 230 participants across our content teams and we will be further expanding mentorship opportunities, including a program partnership with the Estée Lauder Companies.
Learning We are excited to launch a global eLearning platform soon, providing world-class professional learning resources for all employees. The eLearning platform will consist of a wide variety of learning content related to relevant leadership, management, and professional skills that will complement our expanding portfolio of instructor led programs.
Employee Engagement We listen to our employees and measure engagement on a regular basis. Findings from the surveys are used to evolve our culture and help create a workplace where employees can feel invested.

Global Employee Council
Born from an internal call-to-action, Condé Nast’s global employee council provides a participatory platform for employees to identify shared objectives, exchange ideas and work together on community priorities top of mind for our global workforce.
Council members are selected annually through an open application process and trained over the year to collectively recognize and share resources to activate our Conde Code, specifically focusing on sustainability and diversity. They work closely with an executive steering committee composed of managing directors from across the company to expand work, internally and externally, on these topics.
