Dow Jones has a longstanding record of attracting and hiring bright, ambitious women. And despite being a 125-year-old company, they also have a record of fostering entrepreneurship and innovation, becoming a digital-first company on the cutting edge of technology.
“There are multiple women who hold positions of power at this company,” one employee wrote on Fairygodboss. “It is very inspiring, and really encourages you to try and move up in the chain of command.”
Another employee said she loves her job because she gets to work with a diverse group of people. “It is a workplace where my team is very diverse (ethnically) and predominantly female-comprised and female-led.”
Offering a culture that is intellectually diverse and passionate, Dow Jones inspires those both within and outside of their walls -- and they are equally committed to building a sense of support and inclusion for their employees. Pursuing an ambitious career and having a family are not mutually exclusive, and Dow Jones gets that.
The company doesn’t force people to choose between spending time with their kids and getting a promotion. Rather, employees are encouraged to rise through the ranks, but they’re also encouraged to find a balance that works for them. Both women and men can take advantage of flexible benefits that are designed to meet the needs of individual employees.
“This is a great place to work if your first priority is maintaining a good work/life balance,” wrote one Fairygodboss member. Another, who also said she enjoys working there because of the “great work-life balance,” added that “management will work with you when unexpected emergencies come up.”
“Dow Jones is a company where you could spend your entire career with endless opportunity,” another employee wrote. “Dow Jones is a business with an entrepreneurial spirit, dynamic, innovative, and ambitious. Dow Jones has an open environment that thrives on candor, speed, risk taking, and transparency. No matter what department you work within, you are in control and your talents will shine. I could work anywhere but I’d prefer to work at Dow Jones, a leader in news, content, innovation and technology. You just can't get this anywhere else!”
Fairygodboss is committed to improving the workplace and lives of women.
