    The claim by DJ Senior Sales Leadership is that if you join Dow Jones Institutional Sales, you will be a maverick, innovative and transformative. You will love the progressive culture and have products the markets demand. Well people these are only lies and ploys to get you to back fill all the smart and successful sales pro's that have left DJ because they could not take the nonsense. Let me give you an honest dose of reality. The truth is that you will represent Sales Management that is clueless when it comes to managing a sales organization. The environment will be chaotic, hostile. depressing and a cowboy like atmosphere. You women be careful how close you get to those cowboys! Remember the Bloomberg lawsuits and stories of the past around favoritism, discrimination and sexism? Well it runs rampant under the CEO and others in Senior Management roles.

    Dad's lock up your recent grad daughters before sending them to the DJ NY office for their first job! Want more truth serum. Your customers will hate you because they are being held hostage to products and pricing they just do not want. That is why many have canceled their DJ contracts. If you want to make real money, apply to other news aggregators who are cleaning up on behalf of this failed experiment by the CEO. Once his contract is up, he and the rest of the inmates he brought in will be put to the curb for trash collection. You have been warned!
