    I worked at Dow Jones full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn because everybody else was leaving. Personally, I liked the energy and challenge. There's so much change to suck in in the media world. The younger people were looking for some process and governance to be more productive, but the VP layer saw it as a waste of time. So the PMs got the boot. Also, great brands for your resume.

    Cons

    Lack of management recognition for all the things that make an entire organization successful, besides the look and feel of an app. Would recommend only to people with the right mindset - learn all you can in a short period of time and decide from there if it's working for you.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the idea of hiring/promoting bloomies as the strategy for beating Bloomberg.
