I worked at Associated Press full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

If you've got ambition and are young, there are opportunities to be involved in coverage of the biggest stories of the day. AP Washington tends to promote young, inexperienced and less expensive reporters for top jobs covering national politics.

Cons

Some of the more knowledgeable, experienced, older reporters get put out to pasture, which is a real shame. It's exactly the opposite at some of the most respected news organizations in the country.
