    Pros

    Good worker protection if your position is unionized - Pretty good salary for engineers.

    Cons

    I was the only non-outsourced engineer on my project, making connecting with people really difficult because they were all part of a different company. This structure seems to really work for managers, but if you're a creator of any kind you'll be devalued within a mechanical, dehumanizing project management structure which is equally bad for WSJ and outsourced employees. When referring to non-management people, Dow Jones/WSJ doesn't even use the word "people" but "resources" which really kind of sums up how this company treats non-managers. If you're actually writing stories vs. building supporting infrastructure this will probably be better. Also, vitriol out of the opinion section made me ashamed to work here.
