    Pros

    You could go out and meet interesting people and there was a fair amount of autonomy in what you did. And it's always fun to see your name in print.

    Cons

    Extremely underpaid and everyone was over-stressed. At a local level there was never anything even remotely interesting to write about. When somthing finally came up it was like the end of the world to the editorial staff -- even little things were urgent and made overly stressful.
