    We work in a fantastic building with great facilities. We have numerous internal resource groups for women, parents, BAME employees, environmentalists. Pay is good and flexible working is offered.

    It seems difficult to move from middle management to senior level. The company has undergone a lot of restructuring and a lot of new appointments are senior people brought in from outside.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful non-management level coworkers. The office building is newly renovated with free coffee.

    Cons

    Management is toxic, hierarchical, and petty. Low growth and even lower morale. In particular, the work atmosphere is designed to resemble a modern factory. The workers are pushed to author reports in which they have no say, and are subsequently penalized for not meeting fluid and subjective criteria. Management is particularly inept at listening and actively participates in making the distinction between the 'workers' and management real. Moreover, initiatives to address these issues on the part of management come through as patronizing and not acknowledging core structural issues. Pay increase in about three percent a year, and beyond moving higher in a strictly reified vertical chain of hierarchy, there is no room for growth.
