    Opportunity, but not a ton of guidance

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for writing and writing what you want, opportunities to learn about different aspects of journalism, editors are generally friendly.

    Cons

    Not much guidance for new writers, timing sometimes valued over quality, until recently most contributing writers were not compensated even if they wrote frequently.

  3.  

    Unlimited room for professional growth

    I have been working at The Stanford Daily full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Amazing professional experience. You're basically given the keys to run a company at age 22 with little/no business experience (experience sitting on a Board, developing initiatives for the company, managing, working directly with businesses)
    - Work directly supports a worthwhile organization
    - Chill environment. Work with other 18-23 year olds.
    - Get to hang around Stanford campus for a year post-grad!

    Cons

    - Little to no mentorship, so almost everything you do is self-taught or trial and error. With such a large alumni network and a board, professional mentorship could and should be better.
    - Challenging time to be leading a newspaper to profitability.
    - You can, without a doubt, make more money at another job.

    Pros

    meet interesting/important people, get more involved in student events, outlet for your opinions and experience with a media organization.

    Cons

    organization politics, lacking in innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more open to new members
