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.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits; smart and approachable colleagues; open floor culture where cross-collaboration is encouraged; challenging work; strong and respected brand; access to leadership. If you're looking for challenging work and the ability to make an impact, Dow Jones is the place to be. Whether you're here for 30 days or 30 years, your ideas are welcome and supported. It's a place where if you can dream it, pitch it, and execute it, then you can do it.

    Cons

    Not so much a con but a challenge - keeping up with change (but seems to be change for the better). Need to be adaptable and independent to excel here.
