Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Dow Jones full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good people
Interesting products
Great reputation
Good benefits
Vestiges of the old Dow Jones culture remain, and these civilize the indifference of the culture being created by the new management

Cons

Senior management is arbitrary and capricious, but without a clear vision of the future
Owned by a company (the new News Corp) committed to cutting $1.4 billion in expenses
Old school media company still unprepared for the Internet
No one is secure
Dow Jones was mismanaged before Murdoch bought it and it needed changing, but the current management has no idea what they're doing

Advice to Management

Reach beyond Bloomberg for future management hires. You need to find you own path and not create a pale imitation of the competition.
