    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.
