Good to have on your resume.

Reporter (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Dow Jones full-time for more than 5 years

Pros- Big-name news organization
- In-house training provided
- Good people to work with/work atmosphere
- London office located in the heart of the business district

Cons- Now owned by News Corp.
- Petty time-off battles against Bloomberg.
- Very little succession planning (promotions to reporting positions arbitrary with little support given)
- Preference given to Americans for promotions or foreign assignments.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of trying to out-innovate Bloomberg, how about tackling news in a more aggressive manner (as Bloomberg does) and remunerate reporters based on how many times their items were read (as a bonus).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
