    I worked at Dow Jones full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gym onsite, good brand name, gain good experience

    Cons

    Dow Jones used to be a company that I was once proud to work for. Unfortunately, in the last year under the new CEO, the company suffered a major shake up and lack of direction. Many executives with tons of experience were replaced with young, junior, inexperienced former Bloomberg employees to head up departments/groups with no expertise. These people were put into these roles with no prior experience. As a result, people are exiting this company at an alarming rate. Dow Jones is on a downward spiral.

    Advice to Management

    Put people in senior positions that actually knwo what they are doing.

    awesome coworkers and work environment. new york city is the place to be if you can afford it.

    bit of a crisis in the newspaper industry means you will have to make tough decisions. it can be difficult to make those decisions if you're not fearless and confident

    Advice to Management

    decisions will be tough but we're trusting you to make the right call
