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

    Pros

    Fun, mostly good people. Incredible journalism and journalists, a privilege to work with them

    Cons

    Difficult industry headwinds at the moment and lots of shifting strategy in the last few years with significant changes in management and management style.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing company strategy. Commit to 5 year plans.

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, great conditions and good brand name to work for.

    Cons

    Constant change in management and direction. The business model is struggling in a digital age.

    Advice to Management

    Nurture talent and don't rely on your brand name to attract the best innovators. All the most promising people leave with frustration.

    Great people and exciting work.

    Stick to one strategy and pursue it full bore.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Gym onsite, good brand name, gain good experience

    Cons

    Dow Jones used to be a company that I was once proud to work for. Unfortunately, in the last year under the new CEO, the company suffered a major shake up and lack of direction. Many executives with tons of experience were replaced with young, junior, inexperienced former Bloomberg employees to head up departments/groups with no expertise. These people were put into these roles with no prior experience. As a result, people...

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Princeton, FL

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and great team to work with.

    Cons

    The new CEO is terrible. The strategy is not disseminated to employees and he has put inexperienced, albeit smart people in charge. There is also no advancement with his flat management structure. I wish them all the best, but it's sad that the company is being run by a tyrant.

    Advice to Management

    To Rupert Murdoch, get a new CEO. I'm not saying that the company needed to change, it did but not this way.

    I have been working at Dow Jones

    Pros

    Having the Dow Jones name on my resume.

    Cons

    Salaries are below par and not good. You only advance based on who you know not your qualifications. Management will only point out things that you can improve and never says a good word for doing a good job. Low morale, career advancement is a joke, especially if you work remotely. Tons of red tape and processes stay in the way of being innovative. Overall, there salaries are very low compared to other companies,...

    Advice to Management

    Reward and recognise employees who do a good job. You also need to scrutinize the work performance of senior management since they have the attitude of "no one can touch me".

    "A good, but not great, place to work."

    I have been working at Dow Jones

    Pros

    Peers tend to be bright, interesting people. Good collegial atmosphere. Although benefits have been eroding over time, they are still very competetive. As anywhere, leadership sets the tone. If you are fortunate to be in an innovative area (or able to create an innovative team), opportunities exist to do some interesting and exciting things.

    Cons

    Biggest downside is practise of hiring into the most senior positions from the outside rather than cultivating, grooming, and promoting talent from within. Largest industry, newspaper publishing, is a declining business, so the company must change, shrink, or both.

    Advice to Management

    Put far greater emphasis on grooming talent to grow into senior positions, and take some chances with promotions to allow people the chance to show what they can do.
