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

    Pros

    - Strong leadership
    - Transparency into high level company decisions
    - Focused on solidarity and working together toward a goal that benefits the company with clear messaging that this will in turn benefit the employees
    - Strong desire to get the most out of technology

    Cons

    - Not a con persay but, worth noting that this is a company in transition with a renewed focus on using technology and using it correctly. Be prepared to help be a moving piece in that transition.
    - Lots of antiquated technology that needs to be updated/replaced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up

    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
