"good benefits (including backup childcare options) and maternity leave policy. but the culture depends on where in the company you work. in certain areas of the company there is definitely a feeling of a male-centric, old boys club, with only a few women at the top. my boss happens to be a wonderful woman with kids of her own who is very flexible about hours worked etc, but not everyone at the company is like that. "

"Dow Jones values their employees lives outside of the job - the work/life benefits are wonderful! There's a lot of flexibility, childcare benefits, healthcare, etc. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they really stepped up in offering work/life leave hours that one could use every week, a stipend for home office equipment, sending Tech equipment home to make you as comfortable and efficient as possible working from home. My only gripe about the firm is that its prevented from obtaining the right people because its held back by its union. Yeah, it has a union which I found incredible when I first started. For the reporters and printing press employees, unions make sense. However, for someone working in Finance or Sales, that's a huge conflict of interest. As a manager, I am restricted as to what type of compensation I can suggest for union employees, which ones I can keep or remove. It is completely unfair to the employees who go above and beyond. Other than that, it's a decent place to work."
"Benefits, including typical parental benefits as well as adjacent ones like reproductive health coverage, as well as time off in general, are excellent and lead the pack in comparison with similar organizations. Dow Jones has launched a few initiatives in the past few years to try to help women advance - however, the efforts don't seem to be genuinely supported by leadership or have roots in actual leadership opportunities, and as a result many of the women who've gone through these programs have ended up leaving, or want to leave but stay for the benefits."
"Great benefits and culture but pay and promotions aren't equal. Women are in entry level and very senior roles, but barely any in middle management. Promotions to middle management fall behind men considerably. To be promoted, you essentially need to be male or British."

"It's overall a good work culture, but the commitment to diversity is mostly talk and little action."
