    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 ManagementAdvice

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