    Pros

    It's a job in journalism in a major U.S. city. You'll get a steady paycheck because this newspaper is financially solvent. You'll also cover major figures in California's legal community.

    Cons

    Low pay and lousy benefits. The bosses excessively micromanage their employees and exhibit an attitude towards them that is disdainful at best and abusive at worst. Screaming and threats are not unheard of there. There's a high turnover rate there for good reason. The paper's pay wall is so high that few stories make it into the general news circulation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop screaming at your employees. Stop treating your workers like infants. Start promoting your reporters' work. Start learning that micromanagement demoralizes your workforce.

    Pros

    Seems to mainly be a jump-off for graduate students to other journalism jobs. There is a core of savvy legal reporters.

    Cons

    Frequent turnover in positions including editors. Never seemed to be a coherent vision as to what the paper was trying to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to differentiate itself with more of the insider legal vision readers expect from a law-focused daily newspaper. Requiring a graduate degree means the bulk of the newsroom is comprised of reporters inexperienced in covering the law and in reporting.
