The Condé Cuts Continue!

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) The March 31 receptionist purge in the once-hallowed halls of Condé Nast left the publishing house with an obvious problem: What happens when the remaining few left on editorial floors break for lunch? Junior staffers to the rescue. The Daily has learned that editorial assistants at flagship titles like Vogue and GQ are rotating in thrice daily, relieving the receptionists while they enjoy three allotted breaks.

And the cuts just keep on coming. Condé Nast has long offered employees the benefit of free emergency daycare at 4 Times Square, but the company recently implemented a new policy--staffers must now pay $35 for all-day care of one child, and $50 for two or more children. The benefit remains heavily subsidized.
