Pros: An awesome news gathering machine. Reporters of all ages can really grow and hone their trade here. It has an impeccable reputation. Plus free snacks.
Cons: Not really much work-life balance, or consideration to the needs of family. I'm thinking most of the senior staff have their children raised by spouses or nannies. Plus middle management tends to get squeezed between demanding bosses and ambitious (& sometimes scheming) underlings

Journalism has been under attack, in more ways than one.
To help journalists manage the heightened dangers they face in newsrooms, in the field and online, the National Press Club Journalism Institute and the National Press Foundation are co-hosting a safety workshop. The program will take place at the National Press Club on Friday, June 28 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The event is free, but advance tickets are required.
The program will have three sessions:
-- Sandy Johnson, president of the National Press Foundation, will moderate a presentation by representatives of Orbis Operations on “advanced situational awareness training” to help reporters and newsrooms recognize early warning signs of danger and what to do in an active threat situation.
-- The second session will cover how to defuse threatening situations when they arise and how to take pre-emptive action. The panel, moderated by John Donnelly, senior writer at CQ Roll Call and chair of the Club's Press Freedom Team, will include Danny Spriggs, vice president of global security for The Associated Press; Margaux Ewen, executive director of the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation; Nadine Hoffman, deputy director of the International Women's Media Foundation; and Cmdr. Guillermo Rivera, head of special operations for the Washington metropolitan police department.
-- Julie Moos, executive director of the National Press Club Journalism Institute, will facilitate a discussion on online threats and harassment, strategies for defending yourself, and building a supportive cyber community that’ll have your back.
