I can't really give a review on this company as I was employed on a rolling contract which didn't last very long.
In the short time I was employed with them the people were very easy to get along with.

A very friendly place to work at and great team spirit.
1994-2002 BRIDGE INFORMATION SYSTEMS/DOW JONES TELEPHONIST/RECEPTIONIST

• Maintained the reception area to a very high standard

• Answered a very busy computerised switchboard. The main type of calls I took were to accounts payable, and we had two different departments which dealt with incoming and outgoing invoices. We also had a marketing department, which dealt with marketing their own workstations

• Updated information on the computerised switchboard and made sure all the correct fields were filled in, and double checked the information was correct

• Signed for documentation and ensured deliveries were received promptly

• Booked conference rooms via a computerised system and arranged catering.

• Dealt with employment agencies as and when temporary staff were required

• Compiled instructions on how to use the Lucent Switchboard and trained

temporary staff for our reception area

• Processed cost coding/checking invoices for couriers and taxis

• Dealt with the overflow of administration work from the Facilities Manager that involved some copy typing, and checking and reconciling invoices.
Pros
It was far easier to take annual leave.
Cons
There was no in-house canteen.

Very poor management, complete lack of business ethic and culture
This company doesn´t keep talent. If you are hard working professional, committed to perform this is not your place to work. If you like to chill around, gossiping and stuff ... then go ahead. The decisions come from US and often very inconsistent, and of course, people doesn´t count. Over 10 years + this was potentially the worst work experience. Managers lie and hide relevant decisions that affect directly people. The HR is incompetent and lacks transparency. Be aware!
Pros
free bananas
Cons
A lot, doesn´t have time to explore deeper.

Collegiate and Fun
Dow Jones (Europe) was a progressive company, with great products and people.

I felt the business would have been more innovative and faster-paced had it not been run quite so much from the center (New York).


Employees were valued and treated fairly, with lots of opportunity for promotion, to work across different product areas and to work in different geographies.
Pros
Great infrastructure and support
Cons
Risk adverse

Dog eat dog environment plenty of low skilled people
All based in sales and profits, dot eat dog environment, lack of good skill and real good employees, managers have no idea about what direction to take, progression take ages, equipments are outdated, it's a bit like a High School for people with the brain screwed.
Pros
Free snacks/fruit/ good location
Cons
Lack of internal communication, Lack of work ethic, lack of good equipments, lack of good management

Conducted data analysis working on their Factiva Database
As a research intern, I was on a team with other interns, where we analyzed the entries in the Factiva Database an edited them to allow the database to run smoother. Additionally I worked briefly on the Connotate Database, where I worked on a social media platform.
