I have been working at Dow Jones full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Dow Jones leadership seems to understand the realities of the publishing industry and is taking the right steps to transform its business.

Appears to be change afoot and while that probably scares a lot of people, it's liberating to know I am at a company where my changes and work have a real, positive impact to the future of the organization.

Work is fast paced and exciting. Peers and management are open to ideas.

Internal career opportunities and internal job transfers are cool.

There's an influx of very talented people.

Cons

If change, learning, and transformation scare you off, this might not be the place for you.

    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    New media is exciting, growth orientation, great benefits.

    Cons

    Lackluster senior management, risk taking only when told to take the risk, data overload, crippling politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Skip levels, listen below, pay attention to business intelligence and metrics, let the old mentality really go - it just appears to have gone but still trickles.

    Pros

    Good people working hard to create a good product that has real relevance in the marketplace. Pay is decent, offices are nice. Good name in the market.

    Cons

    High leadership turnover resulting in constantly changing direction; chronic budget issues resulting in the loss of some of the right people. Lack of goals can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a long-term strategy, communicate it frequently, staff with full-time employess and provide them with appropriate opportunities
