    I worked at The Stanford Daily as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really laid back atmosphere and I got to bring in my ideas and suggestions on what I wanted to work on. I could work remotely and all meetings were on campus.

    Cons

    At the time it was a start up so not the most organized management.

    I have been working at The Stanford Daily full-time (More than a 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.

    I have been working at The Stanford Daily full-time

    Pros

    The editors are very accessible and down-to-earth, and they always have food in the newsroom.

    Cons

    Not any that I can think of.


  4. "Opportunity, but not a ton of guidance"

    I worked at The Stanford Daily part-time

    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.
