Pros

Great place to work, smart people. Great brand that has appeal in certain markets with some solid products.

Cons

The org always had too many layers that were too far removed from the real business. They were slow to adapt to market changes.

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

    Pros

    One of the best thing about Dow Jones experiencing and being in the very exciting new environment that Lex Fenwick our CEO has planted into the Dow Jones garden of success. It is just the beginning and it will bloom into bigger and better things. You can feel the excitement in the air and and everyday is a new adventure. The new atmosphere of employees only brings more to the table; the word is FRESH. Coming into work is like opening the balcony door on a perfect breezy spring day.

    Cons

    Hard work is a key element in being successful at Dow Jones and going above and beyond is what is expected. Dow Jones employees are over achievers and if you are a "bare minimum" type, you may not like it here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and injecting the air with adrenaline.

    High leadership turnover resulting in constantly changing direction; chronic budget issues resulting in the loss of some of the right people. Lack of goals can be frustrating.

    Develop a long-term strategy, communicate it frequently, staff with full-time employess and provide them with appropriate opportunities
