    Pros

    Great job for getting to know a town and really ingraining yourself in community news and small businesses.

    Cons

    Communication between headquarters and the field can be hit or miss sometimes. You need to be very organized in order to maintain a work-life balance.

  2. Great company, Lack of leadership
