    Benefits & pay at one time were good and then began to fall but made up for negative atmosphere from upper level.

    I worked at Dow Jones

    Pros

    Family like atmosphere, you knew what to expect, not a lot of drama (but that also meant a staid environment)

    Cons

    They were slow to innovate except in a few key areas. Unless you were pegged early on as a rising star they had no use for you. Don't expect to be professionally developed or find a career mentor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more open environment. Communicate.

    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.
