    Pros

    Great atmosphere and corporate culture. Plenty of employee resources, whatever your needs. Great location by London Bridge.

    Cons

    London is a satellite HQ to the New York office and that can really be felt at times. Not a lot of room for professional development or career progression in EMEA. A lot of reorgs and restructures that affect junior employees' development.

        The USA management could improve the way they communicate with their teams. Micromanaging at a director level is never good.

        I worked at Dow Jones full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Not many apart from making some good friends.

        Cons

        Easy to become complacent and bored. Very little room to progress and lots of company politics. Brown nosing is key to make your way up. Don't pay enough.

        Advice to Management

        Listen and be transparent rather than going on the defensive when questions are asked.
