    Great company

    Former Employee - Data Analyst in Skillman, NJ

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You are working for an industry leader that makes a superior product that sits on the most important desks in the world. Along with the prestige is the fact that you are treated extremely well with perks that you would never receive elsewhere.

    Cons

    With high rewards comes high expectations. Market response is very high, product expectations are demanding, and there is very little room for error.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a better employee growth program. There was none at all while I was there.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    As I mentioned above , its great to work with bloomberg because it has unbelivable transperency , the sales done by company is visible to all. No sprecial siting arrangement for bosses. No closed cubicles. Great accountability , every work item is ticketed and resposibilites are clear. Its financially stable so only your performanc e matters. Good Pay and ability to contribute in new product conceptualization and developement .

    Cons

    Some things can be bit bothering , too much of buisness focus so new ideas are strictly evaluated for ROI , may loose forest for tree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont change a bit..

    Pros

    There are a lot of projects that we get to work on, which gives you a lot of experience in the industry.

    Cons

    Some of the work is very repetitive and you will feel like you turn your brain off when you sit down in the morning.
