      Pros

      I have been with Dow Jones for 5+ years now. My notion of Dow Jones: Heavily invested in career and knowledge growth. They provide training resources for free (Covered by Company), tuition reimbursement, and there is even a mentor program.

      The USA management could improve the way they communicate with their teams. Micromanaging at a director level is never good.

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

      Pros

      Not many apart from making some good friends.

      Cons

      Easy to become complacent and bored. Very little room to progress and lots of company politics. Brown nosing is key to make your way up. Don't pay enough.

      Advice to Management

      Listen and be transparent rather than going on the defensive when questions are asked.

      Cons

      More like a call center job than a level 2 technical support .

You will just escalate cases online to QA never really work with them or development teams etc. no access to testing/ staging environment/ databases or logs, no awareness about what platforms/processes your products use...
