    Pros

    Still some Dow Jones people left with strong values and integrity but the numbers are dwindling as former Bloomberg managment takes control around the globe. There are too few positive things to say about DJ now that the new regime is in place by the CEO. The only pro is the entertaiment value of seeing a circus act without having to pay for tickets. Lots of juggling clowns and a bald purple ring leader.

    Cons

    Too much to mention in the Institutional Sales area. The CEO rules by fear and intimidation with no strategy, no plan and no focus. Sales Peolpe want out because Sales Managment doesnt have a clue on managing the business or key customer relationships. Staff retention efforts are awful and customers are looking at competitors for replacement solutions. No longer proud to be a Dow Jones Employee. Would never recommend a friend to Dow Jones.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO should stop acting like it is the 1990's and he is at Bloomberg. Start treating employees with respect and integrity. Stop trying to wing it, have a plan and direction. Treat customers fairly and respectfully or they will continue to flee. (RT) should realize the DJ CEO is the absolute wrong person for the job and must rid of him before the circus act brings down the tent on a once wonderful org.
