    I have been working at American City Business Journals full-time (less than a year)


    At BBJ, publisher is on top of his responsibilities and staff, very transparent about business side of things. Editorially, editor is a sweetheart and a nurturing boss. Good division of church and state, with some minor annoyances here and there. Good pay, too.


    Can be pretty stiff atmosphere at newspaper events, reporters and editors aren't encouraged to be out on the street enough, editorial team can feel insular
