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

    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. For individual that are willing to work hard, grow and show that they are a professional, there is opportunity for career advancement. Sorry no free hand outs, you actually... have to work for it!!! The Benefits is good in my opinion, with most companies reducing benefit coverage and increasing responsibility to the employee. Dow Jones for the most part has been able to keep the burden to the employee to a minimum. Trust me I've seen a lot worse out there. Hopefully this helps if you are presented with an option to work at Dow Jones.

    Cons

    Cross Team/Department collaboration can be difficult at times, as it feels like many departments are under staff.

    Pros

    Good work environment, colleagues are friendly.

    Cons

    Management has not been trained in their field.

    Advice to Management

    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.
