    Pros

    The majority of departments will make accommodations for employees managing the work-life balance. DJ offers good fringe benefits including life ins, a good health care plan, and on-site day care on certain campuses.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is changing though (as of 2012-13). "New" CEO Lex Fenwick (plucked from Bloomberg) desires to put his own stamp on operations, but insistence on personally approving projects and budgets has slowed progress to a snail's pace. Impending split of parent News Corp into film/entertainment and publishing/news divisions has many waiting for further belt-tightening.

    Pros

    Strong brand, interesting business
    Excellent benefits, salary is moderate
    Nice office. hours are OK
    Get to ride elevator with famous TV reporters

    Cons

    Career progress is only made by taking somebody else's job. Very political.
    Revenue, earnings, and hiring are flat/declining, so hiring one person means firing someone else.
    Growth/survival strategy not clear.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear about strategy. Tell the truth.
