    I worked at Mother Jones Magazine as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    learn a lot about the reporting and editing process. fun and stimulating atmosphere and coworkers. interesting subject matter to work on. unlimited opportunities to blog and pitch stories.

    Cons

    lacks diversity in general, and therefore lacks diversity in perspectives and world views - though generally everyone is very intelligent and open-minded.
    not much opportunity available to stick around after fellowship program ends.

    Pros

    The mission of MoJo is a noble and necessary one: fearless investigative reporting to promote a more just and democratic world. And the organization practices what it preaches. Everyone is very conscious of supporting and promoting work/life balance and in treating one another with honor and respect. This is a nonprofit organization and a union shop. Although salaries tend to be a little lower than the for-profit corporate world, the soft benefits are many and varied. Most importantly, the dog-eat-dog competitiveness and outright greed and selfishness one finds in many for-profit companies don't exist here. People are recognized for their performance and everyone takes pride in their work

    Cons

    The coffee machine is a bit antiquated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the terrific work!
