    Pros

    Probably still a decent place to begin a financial journalism career Several good people remain Other employers do take note of the MarketWatch and Dow Jones names, so there is resume value

    Cons

    The people in the best position to run the site have not been placed into those roles Too much of the site has been given over to commentary Not much chance to do interesting features; too many bland market stories with information readily available elsewhere If management adds responsibilities to your plate, there is no understanding that others may have to be curtailed or eliminated

    Advice to Management

    Let the remaining staffers who helped build the site pre-Dow Jones run it. MarketWatch had a unique role in providing financial news to both the average unsophisticated investor and the institutional investor, and management understood how to serve both constituencies.
