There are a lot of women in management positions and at senior level. Our President is a woman and volubly is pro-female and feminist. The culture is not "laddish" generally but I still think a lot of male managers have pub or golf-course conversations about work issues that exclude women.

It's decent. Some good perks, benefits, gym reimbursement. Low salaries, not a lot of opportunity for growth, very minimal raises not dependent on performance.

Fast paced. Different rules in different departments so it varies

It's a good place to work, especially the health benefits and maternity leave compared to many other places. However, there aren't many flexible policies as working from home is not encouraged in many departments.

    Working from home should be a more regular option for editors and desk reporters.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    12 paid / unpaid

    I was able to take an additional 3 months unpaid, but still received my health care benefit (although I had to pay that back later for the months I was unpaid.)

Dow Jones is a great place to work, and there are women at the highest levels of the company, including in the C-Suite.

Not a great place to advance as a woman. Difficult to hobnob with the bosses, who are all men.

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.

    12 paid / 8 unpaid

    I had to fight for a promotion I had been promised prior to going on leave. I felt as if I had to re-prove myself upon my return. While everyone was very sweet and supportive on the surface, both my direct report and the head of my department ignored and avoided my requests to work from home on Fridays when transitioning back to work. I was also turned down when I asked to use my accrued paid time off on Fridays for the first 2 months back. I felt really uncomfortable and unstable in the role I had worked very hard over the previous 4 years to earn. I caught the drift and eventually forced myself to act as if I didn't have a child (being available at all times on email, working from home after hours, staying late on a regular basis). It was only then that I was able to secure a promotion. I saw this same pattern, in varying degrees, across other departments as well.

There aren't enough women in senior leadership roles and it remains a very white male (and sometimes alpha) organisation, particularly in the newsroom. But the company does seem to want to change that.
