I worked at Dow Jones full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The majority of departments will make accommodations for employees managing the work-life balance. DJ offers good fringe benefits including life ins, a good health care plan, and on-site day care on certain campuses.

Cons

The corporate culture is changing though (as of 2012-13). "New" CEO Lex Fenwick (plucked from Bloomberg) desires to put his own stamp on operations, but insistence on personally approving projects and budgets has slowed progress to a snail's pace. Impending split of parent News Corp into film/entertainment and publishing/news divisions has many waiting for further belt-tightening.
