Great Place to Work!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsGreat work/life balance
Awesome Vacation time/benefits
Overall positive attitude in company
Ability to contribute ideas from day 1

The open environment is a huge step forward for the company. It definitely helps garner a better sense of community. We also have the option to work from home when necessary and you're given the freedom to determine how you want to work. As long as the work gets done correctly and on time, you can approach it anyway you want.

ConsRecent regime changes make things seem unstable

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the positive vibe and open door policy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Generally good people, good benefits, but "integration" is still rocky

Reporter (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Dow Jones full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits, particularly with the 401K and vacation time

ConsTends to be a lack of direction from above, with no clear sense of who our audience is or what our aim is as a company.

Great company, meager pay

Customer Service Executive (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsThe company offers great benefits: Healthcare (including Dental), discounts on things like gym memberships, Apple products, Verizon/AT&T, etc. In addition, they have a free snack bar which gives fresh fruit 3x every day.

ConsThere are contradictions between what is said and what is done, in terms of how to move into different areas of the company.

Used to be great...once

Director (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Dow Jones full-time for more than 8 years

ProsLocation, vacation time, benefits, free food and great products

ConsVery clickish, if you are not "in" with new management you don't stand a chance to get recognized for your accomplishments. Doesn't matter if you are a top performer or not. They lay off good, strong, solid people in favor of putting "friends" into key positions. No upward mobility, no respect for long time workers. No long term strategy. Makes decisions on short term thinking and then changes direction every 6 months.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop firing your best workers who actually know something about running the company and stop just placing people into high level roles with no experience.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
