    I worked at Dow Jones

    Pros

    Vibrant and up to date office space

    Cons

    A typical day as an intern here, in my experience, was sitting around and doing absolutely nothing, which some people may actually like. However, the management did not seem to care about helping you grow whatsoever and often forgot you existed. I didn’t learn anything at all despite me constantly asking to help out with projects or anything I could get my hands on. On the rare occasion that I had something to do, i... would get 0 acknowledgment and no sense of appreciation from my managers which made me feel extremely inadequate. I’ve had several internships before but this was by far the worst experience and I do not recommend working here.

    Advice to Management

    Try to at least show you care about your employees, even the interns.

    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.
