Good place to work and seems like if I had children I could have a work/life balance.

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.

    I think it's an amazing opportunity to work here, but I'm not sure it is flexible for mothers and see few women promoted internally in the newsroom.

Dow Jones has a great work-life balance; management will work with you when unexpected emergencies come up.

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.

    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.

  • One Thing Employer Could 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.

Good place to work, flexible work hours, poor communication at lower management levels.

Lots of women here apart from the Technology team -- Technology really needs to add more women at the senior management level (there are none)

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.

There are multiple women who hold positions of power at this company. It is very inspiring, and really encourages you to try and move up in the chain of command.

Enjoy working here, especially the people. Management leaderdership changes frequently and it makes it hard to be consistent with getting promotions.
