    I worked at Dow Jones full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people
    Interesting products
    Great reputation
    Good benefits
    Vestiges of the old Dow Jones culture remain, and these civilize the indifference of the culture being created by the new management

    Cons

    Senior management is arbitrary and capricious, but without a clear vision of the future
    Owned by a company (the new News Corp) committed to cutting $1.4 billion in expenses
    Old school media company still unprepared for the Internet
    No one is secure
    Dow Jones was mismanaged before Murdoch bought it and it needed changing, but the current management has no idea what they're doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach beyond Bloomberg for future management hires. You need to find you own path and not create a pale imitation of the competition.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Dow Jones part-time

    Pros

    Respect from senior staff, cohesion of purpose and competitive salary.

    Cons

    I wish the job was not temporary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing because it works!
