A solid company, but a little top heavy

I worked at Dow Jones

Pros

Great place to work, smart people. Great brand that has appeal in certain markets with some solid products.

Cons

The org always had too many layers that were too far removed from the real business. They were slow to adapt to market changes.

    Pros

    One of the best thing about Dow Jones experiencing and being in the very exciting new environment that Lex Fenwick our CEO has planted into the Dow Jones garden of success. It is just the beginning and it will bloom into bigger and better things. You can feel the excitement in the air and and everyday is a new adventure. The new atmosphere of employees only brings more to the table; the word is FRESH. Coming into work is like opening the balcony door on a perfect breezy spring day.

    Cons

    Hard work is a key element in being successful at Dow Jones and going above and beyond is what is expected. Dow Jones employees are over achievers and if you are a "bare minimum" type, you may not like it here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and injecting the air with adrenaline.

    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.
