    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time

    Pros

    Great products and talented people. Fairly lax environment and dress code.

    Cons

    New CEO has quietly made deep cuts in all departments to the point where some of them are no longer functional. Little to no communication from upper management. Absolutely no growth opportunities or room for advancement as the business is now a flat organization without layers of management. Clear direction and vision is lacking. Evident demographic favoritism in the appointments of the highest level executives department heads.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the way it was.
