Director (Former Employee) – New Jersey – February 1, 2018
Projects broke most of the PM rules. Often moving targets caused projects to miss deadlines. Inter department communications was good but consensus on target goals were not always in alignment. Way to much of the "that's not the way we do things" in the conversations. Projects i started from scratch went fine. Had to rework the projects I inherited.

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 21, 2018
Dow Jones is a great place to work, is flexible and has good benefits. Management is visible and work side-by-side with employees. I was able to take advantage of their flexible hours while raising my children.
Office Clerk (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 18, 2018
I enjoyed my six month internship here; the boss was hilarious but restpectful, and the coworkers were easy to get along with. I filed newspapers and books at Dow Jones, and I was deeply involved in teamwork.
Desktop IT Technician (Former Employee) – Monmouth Junction, NJ – January 2, 2018
Even though I was only there for a few months, it was a great experience to work for Dow Jones. It was a enterprise corporation and the work culture there was surreal. Its pretty amazing to work for a news media corp, and you get to see what really goes on there. I would gladly work for this company again if they hired me.
Associate (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – December 30, 2017
Push for what you want.. Many times opportunities will not be be handed to you and you will need to make an effort to have management know you are hungry for more. If you do not speak up then you will be overlooked.
Director, Marketing Communications (Former Employee) – New York, NY and Princeton, NJ – December 27, 2017
Global exposure, interesting product line up, technology drives business, management can be highly political. Great opportunities to create your own personal brand. Most enjoyable part of job is that as a contributor, you can really make an impact.
Executive Assistant/Office Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 11, 2017
Dow Jones was a great place to work. A day at work was always nice. The people were friendly. We had fun while working hard to accomplish goals. Managers were always on top of things and pushing you to work hard, but never micro managing. The hardest was at the end of the year getting out the mass mailing, but fun because we had so many partners that were satisfied with the service we were giving them. If not for the out sourcing of my duties, I'd still be there.
News Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 30, 2017
Learned a lot and think I have become a better researcher and worker, but the supervisor was very difficult to work with, which is a shame since I wanted to do more for the company. Although it was ultimately not the best fit, working there was worthwhile since I was able to gain a stronger set of skills with respect to finding info and figuring out the facts.
At Dow Jones Indexes, we started as a Domestic Business Unit, but eventually moved to become Dow Jones Global Indexes, that meant our sales team grew, as well as my knowledge of various cultures (England, France, Spain, China, Germany, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan). We created offices in each of these countries. This meant that I brought work home at night so I had a home office where I could work remotely, which was good for the company.
Learned to build a brand, A start-up, A new revenue unit within a large corporation
Executive Assistant/Profiles Editor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 6, 2017
The best experience ever! The executive officers are the best in the industry. Supportive management with an astounding employee staff. It is very surprising when an employee wants to leave the Dow Jones corporate structure. The company offers a great return policy for some employees.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – September 30, 2017
Worst management ever. You need to know people in order to advance. There is a lot of favoritism. There is not room to grow within the company. Management only knows how to tell you what is being done wrong but never a solution to the problem. Huge in micromanaging. Not a very friendly environment.
