    I have been working at Whitman College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The communications office gives great advice and feedback on photo and video work. The office trusts that you will do great work.

    Cons

    As a communications photographer, you are mainly working within the campus and with other students so there is not as much immediate experience with outside professional workplaces, although,you are the freedom and resources to work with outside people if you seek out those opportunities.

    The communications photographer job is a great! Keep it going for students.
