Everything varies greatly depending on location and department. Some managers are more flexible than others, and some departments actually have female managers, although on the news side, the higher up you go, the fewer women in management you'll see. It also depends on your role. If you're a reporter overseas, you'll be expected to be available on-demand at all hours (because everything revolves around the New York time zone and editors have little respect for your personal life and the fact that you have one and it's in a different time zone). That's understandable when it's breaking news, but they won't make any attempts to edit your stories early even when they're features; they will put it all off until they day before the story runs and make you stay up until 3 a.m. to answer questions that could have been addresses weeks ago during reasonable hours. The recent union study obviously shows that men are paid better for doing the same work. Pay and benefits vary widely at the company, unforutnately, and there is no standard package. It just depends what you're able to negotiate at the time you come in (best bet is to take a job here in the fall, as the budget restarts July 1, and so there's never any money until the new budget year). There are a lot of opportunities to move about in the company, which is one of the good things about working here, and depending on your role, a lot of it can usually be done remotely, at least in theory. But moving up into a management position is more difficult and it doesn't seem that women make it very often. (For example, every single bureau chief in the Asia Pacific region is a white male.)

Overall, it is a good place to work. Like any organization, there are issues and concerns. My three biggest being: unequal compensation between men and women; terrible commissions plan; unequal promotion of women. During out last re-organization (back in August) only 1 woman was promoted a middle management postion. The rest were all maile. However, my co-workers are amazing and the culture is good. Every 2 years or so, we get a new CEO and the organization is restructured. I really like our current CEO, he seems to genuinly care about his people and strives to make DJ a good place to work.

To do your job well at Dow Jones in the current culture, you are most definitely expected to sacrifice time with family. Everyone is very pleasant and supportive on the surface, but it's clear that you must be connected to work at all times.
