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.

Somewhat of a mixed review. I do think there are many opportunities for women here but I don't believe we are compensated appropriately. Review for the Wall Street Journal

The regional office I work in is very respectful of family commitments. I don't feel embarassed or guilty if I request to come in early, leave late or take a quick errand for something personal.

    Their benefits and flexibility for working are fabulous. Its not a great place for 'ambitious' women. Its a place of work, maybe not 'career'.

I think they are a family friendly company but I also think they assume people care more about flexiable hours/vacation/benefits for them and their families rather than paying them more accordingly.

I'm treated equally and fiarly, with wonderful flexibility in hours. Not my direct superior, but his superiors up the line for 3 or 4 positions are all women under 50, and are making big strides in our field.

    The company has its ups and downs. There is only limited rom for growth, and as budget cuts are constantly made I feel that more people are leaving and taking their talents somewhere new

I would advise them to be weary, only due to the unfair pay wages for women.

The entrepreneurial spirit permeates across all levels and women are bold, strong, smart and above all kind. It's a company that rewards hard work and results. A huge thumbs up!

It doesn't pay much, and depending on the department the work-life balance depends on your boss.

    6 paid / 4 unpaid

    I was paid partial pay for those paid weeks, that depends on how long you've been at the company.
