I have heard the parental benefits are wonderful, but I haven't explored that personally.

Better than some employers that I have worked for in the past but there is a level of bias

Make sure you get hired with a fair salary, it is much harder to correct once you are in the company

It's definitely a clique-ish environment. If you're not a millennial, or a man, it can definitely be a pretty isolating place to work. This is a review of the WSJ.

Know what you want and you can fight for it, but nothing will be handed to you.

    12 paid / unpaid

    So thrilled the company now offers paid paternity leave, and that some men are actually starting to take it! Helps kill the stigma for women, too.

Overall, it is a good place to work. Like any organization, there are issues and concerns. My three biggest being: unequal compensation between men and women; terrible commissions plan; unequal promotion of women. During out last re-organization (back in August) only 1 woman was promoted a middle management postion. The rest were all maile. However, my co-workers are amazing and the culture is good. Every 2 years or so, we get a new CEO and the organization is restructured. I really like our current CEO, he seems to genuinly care about his people and strives to make DJ a good place to work.

    I do like my job and I love my boss. That being said, I say "maybe" because enjoyment at DJ is largely dependent upon who your boss is. I've had 5 different bosses in 3.5 years, so if you are someone who thrives on stability this may not be the place for you. If you do get a good boss, DJ supports a work/life balance, but if you do not get a good boss, HR will always back your manager, despite their proposed policy that DJ is a family friendly workplace.
