    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great brands, talented editorial staff.

    Cons

    Depending on what sales team you're on, who your manager is, and if they're able to navigate the bureaucratic red tape, you might be able to avoid some toxicity. Very cutthroat sales environment with little mobility in roles. Lots of upper management turnover that results in inconsistent job stability and overall confusion on many levels in terms of responsibilities.
