I have been working at Dow Jones full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

If you worked under a good manager they let you do your job. However, quality managers are leaving at a very fast rate.
Nice office spaces in NY/NJ.

Cons

Massive changes at all levels causes instability and less qualified people seems to be running the show.
Constant reorgs of groups.
Culture of fear about being laid off

Advice to Management

Fire yourselves before you run us into the ground, it may be too late.

    I worked at Dow Jones full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, vacation. Had been a great place to start your career. Work from home was available.

    Cons

    Clueless managers who manage up well stick around, despite being horrible people leaders and clueless about business and their roles. HR department is useless.

    Advice to Management

    I spent almost 20 years at DJ. Seen a lot. Eliminate the dead weight middle and upper managers who can't manage people or understand the business.
