    Working for Dow Jones takes the taste out of my peanut butter.

    Pros

    Unless you are part of management, there are no pros to working at Dow Jones. It is a cut throat company.

    Cons

    Incompetent, overpaid, out of touch redundant upper managers who are penny wise and pound foolish. Lower level workers, who actually understand and run the operation, are significantly underpaid. Upper management feigns concern for the safety of their workers. Company insisted on printing and sending out trucks in the middle of Hurricane Sandy, as if people were looking for the Wall Street Journal on their front step after their house was flooded and roof was blown off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long look in the mirror.

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, vacation. Had been a great place to start your career. Work from home was available.

    Cons

    Clueless managers who manage up well stick around, despite being horrible people leaders and clueless about business and their roles. HR department is useless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I spent almost 20 years at DJ. Seen a lot. Eliminate the dead weight middle and upper managers who can't manage people or understand the business.
