Beginning January 1, 2018, we are pleased to announce further enhancements to our global standard for paid childcare leave.
Today, our current policy provides for up to 12 weeks of paid leave for primary caregivers. We will increase the standard to 20 weeks of full base pay.
In addition, employees will now only need 6 months of service to qualify for paid childcare leave, instead of the 1 year of service previously required.
Dow Jones, as an organization, is firmly committed to providing our employees with programs and services designed to achieve work/life balance.
Dow Jones recently hosted Bring Your Parents to Work Day in New York and London. Nearly 60 parents of employees from New York and Princeton took part in the half-day experience in Manhattan, with 15 parents participating in London. They joined sessions with executives, learned about virtual reality and toured the Newsroom.
THE ULTIMATE SOURCE FOR BUSINESS NEWS AND DATA
Every day, Dow Jones’ advanced data capabilities, award-winning journalism and innovative technology deliver news, tools and financial insight to move markets, inform critical decisions and power top companies and careers.
Since 1882, Dow Jones has been finding new ways to bring information to the world’s top business entities. Beginning as a niche news agency in an obscure Wall Street basement, Dow Jones has grown to be a worldwide news and information powerhouse, with prestigious brands including The Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones Newswires, Factiva, Barron’s, MarketWatch and Financial News.
This longevity and success is due to a relentless pursuit of accuracy, depth and innovation, enhanced by the wisdom of past experience and a solid grasp on the future ahead. More than its individual brands, Dow Jones is a modern gateway to intelligence, with innovative technology, advanced data feeds, integrated solutions, expert research, award-winning journalism and customizable apps and delivery systems to bring the information that matters most to customers, when and where they need it, every day.
Our philosophy: holistic benefits package
Here at Dow Jones we care for our people holistically. Whether it’s yoga classes on our 3rd floor New York office, fresh fruit at The Wall Street Journal snack bar, or an on-site day care center at our Princeton office – we care about you AND your family.
It starts here at Dow Jones:
We’ve created an open space – devoid of walls, barriers and offices to create a sense of community among our employees. Our on-site events (Digital Journalism conference, Women in Communications panel), pizza days, Blue Bottle espresso offerings and volunteer opportunities connect you with the broader vision of who we are as a global 5,000 strong news organization.
It evolves with your changing lifestyle:
Happy people are more productive, more creative and more insightful. Though a gym may suit your needs now, in 20 years’ time you’ll be thinking about elderly care for your parents. We know this, which is why our coverage includes care-taking resources for the aging.
Your contributions matter. Our benefits package is just another way we say “thank you.”
I have been working at Dow Jones full-time (More than 3 years)
Dow Jones has provided me many new opportunities and tools for growing my career. They provide excellent benefits and allow for a sane balance between work and personal life. The Minneapolis office is energetic, innovative and inclusive. The software development teams are given the latitude to build working and sustainable software. I have never worked with such a thoughtful, intelligent and committed group of people. I love coming to work here.
Dow Jones is headquartered in New York. This means some traveling and the occasional feeling of being a bit dislocated.
Advice to Management
Keep focusing on moving forward; you're doing a great job of celebrating employee and organizational successes!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dow Jones (Princeton, NJ).
This was third time I was asked to come in for an interview. Met with two professionals, standard interview questions. Then took 90 minute research test. Then silence, three times I was told position was put on hold. Very unprofessional way to conduct hiring. I don’t understand what they were trying to accomplish. I was asked back the second time because I interviewed so highly according to HR professional.
