    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and corporate culture. Plenty of employee resources, whatever your needs. Great location by London Bridge.

    Cons

    London is a satellite HQ to the New York office and that can really be felt at times. Not a lot of room for professional development or career progression in EMEA. A lot of reorgs and restructures that affect junior employees' development.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits are decent and overall the people you work with are talented and nice. The company tries to hold different social events and cater to employees with fitness and health programs.

    Cons

    There is a lack of long-term direction with changes in executive levels being constant over the last several years. Many of the executives come in with big ideas, but often not realistic due to lack of funding. This in turn creates budget issues that hit the small guy.

    Advice to Management

    Change the name of the company from "Dow Jones" to the "The Wall Street Journal" and focus on incremental improvements instead of constantly trying the big bang approach.

    I have been working at Dow Jones for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good people, qualified and professional.

    Cons

    Too many ill fated restructurations, with new managements teams who do not know the company well enough to be able to bring the company to growth. Also, the company is not reactive enough, and not at the edge of technology as it should.

    Advice to Management

    More investment internally. Listen what middle management tells you

    New regime arrogant, think they have all the answers with no experience in digital or large geographical publishing. CEO nice guy, smart, but pretty clueless on how to run a major corporation. HR dept wants to run the company - laughable

    Advice to Management

    They might listen but would never take advice from anyone in US.
