(Winged ratings measure job satisfaction on scale of 1 to 5)
Anonymous Review Image
"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. "
Overall Job Satisfaction:
4.0
Are women & men treated equally?
"No"
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. "

Would you recommend Dow Jones to other women?
"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. "

"Expect to see incompetency at the leadership level that does not promote healthy communication. The organization under the CTO is rife with dysfunction that encourages employees to undermine each other. It's a boys' club with good benefits for working mothers. "

"There are a number of policies that help working parents. With that said, this is a corporation that is run by men who have no interest in allowing women to contribute to the growth of the company. The male dominated culture is not open to accepting input from anything outside itself. Given this, it is an extremely divisive and dysfunctional culture."
