Dow Jones has been a leader in journalism since 1882—but it’s far from stuck in the past.
As subscriber service manager Sendi Djeljevic says, “You can definitely expect change. You don’t have to worry about ever being bored at your job here because every day brings on a new challenge.”
Part of the thrill comes from the company’s unique method of delivering the news.
“We have really redrawn the boundaries of what we do on news in real-time,” explains Geoff Rogow, news editor of WSJ. “It’s not just covering the news, it’s creating an orchestra and organization that goes out of its way to define what the news is—and what we can do to differentiate our coverage.”
Rogow agrees with Djeljevic about the fast-paced and exciting atmosphere of Dow Jones, saying he’s worked at the company for 11 years and still learns something new every week.
While there are plenty of opportunities for learning on the job, deputy video technology director Yvette McNaught praises the formal professional development options as well.
“There’s a wonderful learning department with all sorts of varied courses onsite and offsite,” she says.
When Rogow, Djeljevic, McNaught, and the other employees aren’t working, they love to hang out. Rogow, who works in New York City, likes to have his colleagues over for house parties and cookouts. He also organizes the WSJ softball team—which, you’ll be impressed to know, has won the New York Media Softball League Bloom Cup multiple times.
The work-life balance is obvious at the Princeton, New Jersey offices as well. Roam the campus, and you’ll find team members talking, laughing, and collaborating in the many meeting areas or at the coffee bar. Plus, Dow Jones hosts lots of fun events, from competitions to philanthropic “Fun Fridays.”
So here’s the scoop: If you want a job that’ll never bore you at a company that values learning, hard work, and fun, work at Dow Jones. Check out the offices below, then go get your next job!
