Condé Nast + McKinsey =

conde.pngThe title of this post was actually the subject of an e-mail we received this week. So what’s the answer to this horrible equation? According to our tipster:

“Buyout offers to senior personnel, the mentor class if you will, the only ones capable of passing along a given publication’s ethics and ethos.”

Earlier this week another tipster told us her experiences with McKinsey consulting at her pub started with the president calling staffers into a meeting and announcing, “Look to your left, look to your right — your neighbor may not be here after this initiative.”

If you’ll try anything to save your job, Gawker has compiled a survival guide for Condé Nasters. But, having been through the layoff ringer once ourselves, this is the best advice we’ve heard all week:

“It’s a good idea to release any sense of control you might have over your future.”
