I have been working at Dow Jones full-time (More than 10 years)

Good, smart colleagues, relaxed atmosphere. Proud to work here.

Strategic lethargy. Would say more action required, less talk, but there isn't even a lot of talk.

Advice to Management

Be bold!

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Big-name news organization
    - In-house training provided
    - Good people to work with/work atmosphere
    - London office located in the heart of the business district

    Cons

    - Now owned by News Corp.
    - Petty time-off battles against Bloomberg.
    - Very little succession planning (promotions to reporting positions arbitrary with little support given)
    - Preference given to Americans for promotions or foreign assignments.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of trying to out-innovate Bloomberg, how about tackling news in a more aggressive manner (as Bloomberg does) and remunerate reporters based on how many times their items were read (as a bonus).
