    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great, global media company with a great reputation. Managers and VPs are all very helpful when it comes to career advancement. Great work like balance, good benefits and flexibility to work from home or at other offices when traveling. Overall, it's been an absolute pleasure to work for WSJ. This is one of the few jobs where I've been excited to wake up and go to work every day.

    Cons

    My department was very understaffed, and execs refused to hire until more senior positions were filled.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to assess hiring holds based on department rather than on overall company structure. If we do not have enough support in strategic planning & delivery, campaigns will suffer.

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

    Pros

    Free Food, Cheap gym in the building (game changer for quality of life!), subsidized food (pretty decent food for cheap in the cafeteria), Challenging work environment, friendly coworkers, great product(s), the management are normal people and you can talk to most of them, the pay is good if you work hard, the benefits are AMAZING (Medical, dental, gym reimbursement, 4.5% 401K match on 6% contribution, the people are...

    Cons

    Tech projects take a long time to get through, moving up can be slow in some cases, the free food doesn't change in variety (this is probably the biggest con... I will never eat peanuts again), the temperature in the office fluctuates wildly (bring a tank top and a sweater), there aren't many happy hours but they are currently working on having more so this shouldn't be a problem for much longer.

    Advice to Management

    More happy hours, hire someone to help the tech team pump out projects, your gym reimbursement program should be able to be used to buy home fitness equipment, turn the electricity off at 5p.m. on a Friday, and you guys really need to throw a Christmas party.

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

    Pros

    Benefits that start on day 1. However, this may seem like a "pro" when you start, but it isn't when you add in the misery of day to day life here.

    Cons

    The 7th floor (marketing and sales) is like high-school. Very clicky. They are CHEAP! They had NO company holiday party in 2016 to thank their employees, nothing!! Senior management is selfish, rude, and do not even talk to their junior-level employees. Everyone hates their job and openly talks about it, making it a very toxic work environment. Or, those who do not talk about diliking it, walk around looking miserable....

    I worked at Dow Jones for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Solid 9-5 hours and good benefits - Easy job of meeting people, cultivating relationships, long lunches, entertainment, and time out of the office - Nice people with long tenures who care about the business

    Cons

    - A dinosaur compared to it competition - weighed down by its Print newspaper core. Tech changes are hard and slow, and its losing in the game of data, mobile, programmatic. - Good old boys network with much of senior and middle-management being chums from some-thing prior. No way of executing on meritocracy.

    Advice to Management

    This should not be and exercise in mitigating the migration to print but rather
