Part-time Journeywoman (Current Employee), LaGrange, GAOctober 12, 2015
Pros: Great benefits, great pay
Cons: Nothing but the job is supposed to matter
The work environment is great. The employees are great. Everyone feels like they are working together as a team. It is rough and you have to be able to lift weight and pull your part of the job. It is a mans job and they are not going to let you slow them down. You need to keep up the pace and do what you are supposed to do.

It is a great place to work with plenty of career advancement if you search for it.

The office is ok - its not that cool.

Very poor management, complete lack of business ethic and culture
Research (Former Employee), LondonDecember 2, 2014
Pros: free bananas
Cons: a lot, doesn´t have time to explore deeper.
This company doesn´t keep talent. If you are hard working professional, committed to perform this is not your place to work. If you like to chill around, gossiping and stuff ... then go ahead. The decisions come from US and often very inconsistent, and of course, people doesn´t count. Over 10 years + this was potentially the worst work experience. Managers lie and hide relevant decisions that affect directly people. The HR is incompetent and lacks transparency. Be aware!

Global Sales & Multi Media Director (Former Employee), London, ENGSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: great infrastructure and support
Cons: risk adverse
Dow Jones (Europe) was a progressive company, with great products and people.

I felt the business would have been more innovative and faster-paced had it not been run quite so much from the center (New York).

Employees were valued and treated fairly, with lots of opportunity for promotion, to work across different product areas and to work in different geographies.
