I have been working at Dow Jones full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

This isn't the same Dow Jones. And I mean that in a good way.. Now it's open plan, free lattes, global perspective, less stratified management. Keeps me challenged everyday. People don't hide behind their computer screens either - it's a collaborative place now. People now TALK TO EACH OTHER.

Cons

Things are constantly moving - in a good way, but it's not for everyone. You have to be willing to evolve with the industry, revise your job description, and roll with constant change...if you want a clear career path, a hierarchy to explain how things work, and hand-holding, don't work here.

Advice to Management

Keep the open plan and the de-emphasis on titles.

    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    DJ has great brands to take pride working for such as the Wall Street Journal, Barron's, MarketWatch. Editorial content is top notch.

    Cons

    CEO of 1 yr finally replaced essentially all his directs with buds brought in from Bloomberg. Existing management had been petrified of heads rolling for a while hence they became less effective. All decision making has been centralized at the top. No room for alternative views here. Just say "yes".

    Pros

    Wonderful people and middle management

    Cons

    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
