    Pros

    Wonderful people and middle management

    Terrible new leadership, making changes without consideration for customers or company. Lack of direction with product and pricing - rash decisions and no market research to back them

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Not many apart from making some good friends.

    Cons

    Easy to become complacent and bored. Very little room to progress and lots of company politics. Brown nosing is key to make your way up. Don't pay enough.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and be transparent rather than going on the defensive when questions are asked.

    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    free fruits and water Subsidized travel Okish to get the name on your CV - then run!)

    Cons

    - Trading on a name which they don’t even own anymore. The rest is also a sinking ship full of lies. - Products are being sold without being tested and working = embarrassing experiences in front of customers guaranteed! - Inaccurate Data - There is a clash in earning potential between senior members of staff at close to 1000%. Fresh AMs are only hired (and subsequently fired) to build their pipeline. Very... cliquey environment. - If you ever have a concern, be sure that you will be ignored. - No flexibility & no responsibility, flat boredom - very US centric, the Local MD has no say in anything really.

    "Worst place to work ever"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Account Manager in London, England

    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good location, great view, cool departments.

    Cons

    If you want to die of boredom join this company, there is nothing to learn, poor management, lack of knowledge and no idea on how to manage people. It's all about the target, no motivation, this place sucks the energy out of you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and motivate your employees, change your management style or you will be sacked very soon.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - good work/life balance - international workforce - chilled atmosphere

    Cons

    - low pay - stagnant business so not many opportunities for growth - no international mobility - bad management - no accountability for bad management decisions (nobody gets fired)

    Advice to Management

    Draw a viable strategy for the business and stick to it. Once a year management would come up with a restructuring / change of direction to the business only to find out one year later that it is not working...
