"It's a good company, but it could be great. Expect to be told what you want to hear to get in the door and then all of that goes out the window once you're actually on board."

"Dow Jones has amazing products like the Wall Street Journal, but the newsroom leadership is dominated by men. As a recent study by the union showed, it's difficult for women to get fair compensation. "

"There are smart people working here, and we represent and produce great brands and products. If you have ambitions to advance in a career here, you must be prepared to consistently show results. However, you must also be prepared to continually flex and seek out clarification on how to measure success as objectives and deliverables shift often. "

One thing Dow Jones can improve?
"1. Provide more transparency with regards to criteria for compensation decisions, (eg: clearly communicated salary ranges, consistent use of titles and clear criteria for promotions. Tie performance reviews to compensation more consistently and, again, with transparency. 2. Stop sending mixed messages about work/life balance. If it's embraced, as per lip service, than provide clear path for employees to easily work from home, establish criteria for doing so, and set appropriate expectations- for all, not just for some. "

"The benefits are competitive, and there is an evolving culture that is slowly moving towards more work/life balance. What's still missing: transparency about compensation (how is it determined? what can we do to get more?, are there salary ranges? What are they? How can I earm more bonus? etc etc), clarity around how to create and advance along a career path, and more input from middle/upper management regarding org structure and compensation. "
