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

    Pros

    Free coffee and food, benefits are good, lots of time off

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they are doing. DJX was a catastrophic failure. Everyone is ex-Bloomberg, DJ will never be Bloomberg

    Fire yourselves and save face

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

    Pros

    Hours are flexible. Okay benefits. Young sales team.

    Cons

    Some managers are completely clueless. Very hard product to sell due to pricing issues. Too many sales reps in one territory so reps are fighting over accounts. There is a lot of internal back stabbing. It can be a long sales cycle and managers are very impatient,

    Advice to Management

    Better direction from managers. Senior level executives need to focus on what their managers are doing. Too many managers play the game but have no clue about the business or how to be a good manager.

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time

    Pros

    Market leader in news and information in the corporate space. Well known brand. Felt respect from clients. Company worked well with clients - developed partnerships.

    Cons

    The "pros" have largely turned into "cons". Corporate clients are fleeing DJ in droves. Clients now hostile towards DJ and their new product and pricing approach. Long-term clients relationships have been tossed aside.

    Advice to Management

    The arrogance of management is destroying morale and the company. People are afraid or unwilling to provide their ideas and suggestions. Not a good way to run a business. Not sure how long the corporate business can survive the loss of clients and loss of confidence clients have in DJ.
