    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Dow Jones for 5+ years now.

    My notion of Dow Jones:
    Heavily invested in career and knowledge growth. They provide training resources for free (Covered by Company), tuition reimbursement, and there is even a mentor program.
    For individual that are willing to work hard, grow and show that they are a professional, there is opportunity for career advancement. Sorry no free hand outs, you actually have to work for it!!!
    The Benefits is good in my opinion, with most companies reducing benefit coverage and increasing responsibility to the employee. Dow Jones for the most part has been able to keep the burden to the employee to a minimum. Trust me I've seen a lot worse out there.

    Hopefully this helps if you are presented with an option to work at Dow Jones.

    Cons

    Cross Team/Department collaboration can be difficult at times, as it feels like many departments are under staff.
