    I worked at Dow Jones full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The primary attraction, in my view, of working at Dow Jones centred almost entirely on the strength of collegiality fostered in the long-held culture of Dow Jones (including Dow Jones Newswires and to an extent The Wall Street Journal). The wide-ranging effects of this culture included: a seemingly limitless supply of implicit and explicit willingness to engage in educational sharing; the capability to conceive and/or undertake almost any project because one could rely on ad hoc assistance from colleagues in the four corners of the globe, whether one was acquainted with them or not.

    Cons

    In recognising that DJ needed a no-holds-barred overhaul, it appears management fluffed the execution. Too many of the wrong sorts of changes were made which--new CEO Will Lewis himself admitted, in his first London 'town hall'--were not the changes required and even then, went too far. These changes related to both the tone of the ethos which management objectified to employees, and perhaps more importantly a similar change in the ethos which was mediated to clients, subscribers and other types of customers [particularly on the institutional side.] There was an increase in inflexibility, imperiousness, distance [vis-vis internally, this was evidenced in an entirely new layer of middle management] a decrease in apparent fostering of internal mobility, decreases in emphatic meritocracy and an increase in cliquey types of overall corporate culture. It's true that these sorts of issues have always assailed all types of corporations everywhere, and perhaps more so in the last few years as a consequence of economic retrenchment, however, Dow Jones has clearly existed through dozens of economic downturns whilst managing to maintain both a beneficent air of independence, and abstraction from prevailing types of corporate cultures which are unlikely to foster impartiality as an end in itself.

    Advice to Management

    Strangely enough, having effectively 'not listened' for several years, it's possible that management is finally (back) on the right track. It's likely that the trajectory [over the next few years] of current remedies and outright corporate adjustments which have still yet to be made will be a fair judge of whether the newer leadership has truly accommodated itself to the task of saving Dow Jones & Co. and the august principles that it represents, or whether what is being witnessed is the next stage in what had looked suspiciously like preparations for a de facto disposal (sale) of assets and very likely, with them, a bunch of principles too.
