    Pros

    Obviously it's a world-class brand so that is a "pro" on its own. Most of the editors I've worked with as a freelancer are very good; the administrative end is professional, efficient, and supportive; and my contributions have received good and broad response.

    Cons

    The pay is not great, but it's not out of line with competitors. Editorial judgement can sometimes be rather baffling.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Wall Street Journal.

    Interview

    Very thorough interview covering years of experience, areas of expertise, best areas with good contacts and sources and ability to write short and longer articles. The emphasis was on having and developing a deep understanding of a particular industry, understanding it in the broadest context within the national and global economy and have detailed knowledge of the largest companies and their competitive advantages and weaknesses. The stress was on the ability to provide exclusive stories and being able to file them in a very fast manner on all the different Dow Jones venues, including digital sites and the newspaper. There was also emphasis on collaborative approaches to articles and working closely with other reporters, and how much of that I had done in the past.
