I have been working at Dow Jones

Pros

Working for The Wall Street Journal was the highlight of my career.

Cons

Concerns for protecting the print business can sometimes hinder the potential for digital.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While integration of print and digital sales has been huge success, be careful about focus on print...especially among leadership ranks. Digital is your future.

    -Vacation, Personal Days, Sick Days

    Cons

    - Employees treated like property
    - Managers have zero experience managing people
    - Morale is LOWWWWWW
    - No Communication
    - Managers refuse to consult with the "little people" and waste time by not communicating to the right people just because they are "below" them in the organization chart
    - Employees are alienated and made to feel as though they are not welcome
    - Managers speak to you as if you were born yesterday.
    - WAY TO MANY PROCESSES
    - Managers pawn off work to their employees only to turn around a take credit for it when relaying "their work" to corporate.
    - Overpaid management, underpaid employees
    - Management is only looking out for themselves. They will lie, and manipulate to protect themselves. All employee are just pawns in their disgusting game.
