    I worked at Dow Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stayed as long as I did for the relaxed work environment and the team. I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the area and some of the perks were great.

    Cons

    Constant battle of red tape, meetings, poor management. All the typical issues for Software Engineers in large companies that aren't true Tech companies. The work was pretty boring and not very challenging.

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learned a lot and worked with bright people

    Cons

    If you have a good manager, it's not a bad place to work. At least when I worked there, they tend to change teams around a lot and you could easily be stuck with a bad manager. That could happen anywhere though. Too many meetings

    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well known name - prestige

    Cons

    Bad organisational structure where people do not want to experiment with new technologies and approaches. Hiring process in the Sofia office is corrupt - the manager of the office is using the hr company of his wife.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring process in the Sofia office is corrupt - the manager of the office is using the hr company of his wife. - stop that! Try to find solutions of the problem, do not make people to leave the company just because you will get more bonuses of hiring new employees.
