What I like about the company

There were many trainings that I was able to take advantage of while working at Dow Jones, they offer many trainings that help with personal development rather than just job training which is nice, if you can get your manager to approve you to go, that is.

What I dislike about the company

Overall, too many managers who were not trained well enough to provide support, or not there long enough to know what they are doing. Most of the customer service department is a popularity contest, and those promoted are "favorites" of upper management, or friends/family with someone in HR, but not always based on performance as it should be.
