    Former Employee - Staff Writer in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Daily Journal (California) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Intelligent writers that are probably overqualified for their positions.

    -A steady paycheck.

    -"Interesting" introduction into the world of legal community if a newbie.

    -Being able to have job experience at a daily publication is a rare opportunity these days.

    Cons

    -Former San Francisco editor who was removed and transferred to LA office was verbally abusive and laid off several employees in the three months that I was there.

    -Writers are encouraged to out-scoop the competition, unless the story you are working on involves a firm that is cozy with management or senior editors. In that case, you could lose your job.

    -SF office used "Barracuda" web filter to limit internet usage, so many news sources were inaccessible at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Do not allow editors to verbally abuse or belittle writers.

    -Do not expect writers to break stories if you are chastising them for writing about people you are chummy with.
