    Lower salaries than competitors, this may be being looked at currently Certain degree of nepotism when looking at senior positions - "boys club" Went through a phase of trying to be "Bloomberg Lite" but this is no longer being pursued.

    I have been working at Dow Jones full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and corporate culture. Plenty of employee resources, whatever your needs. Great location by London Bridge.

    Cons

    London is a satellite HQ to the New York office and that can really be felt at times. Not a lot of room for professional development or career progression in EMEA. A lot of reorgs and restructures that affect junior employees' development.

    Cons

    Management is toxic, hierarchical, and petty. Low growth and even lower morale. In particular, the work atmosphere is designed to resemble a modern factory. The workers are pushed to author reports in which they have no say, and are subsequently penalized for not meeting fluid and subjective criteria. Management is particularly inept at listening and actively participates in making the distinction between the 'workers'...
