I shared an office with the Editor-in-cheif (my boss) and we had a great rapport with each other. We bounced ideas off each other and helped each other with planning, layout, assignments, etc. He was not at all insecure and was glad to teach me everything he knew.
I got to travel all over Europe for trade shows, press conferences, and interviews.
The hardest part of the job was fighting with the sales department for space on the website as well as in print.
