    I have been working at Bloomberg BNA

    Pros

    Great work life balance because you get amazing amounts of leave - more than you can possibly use. Employee ownership gives most employees a sense of pride in the company. The company is extremely stable and provides unbelievable job security. Excellent performance review/feedback mechanisms - tedious for managers but very thorough if they do it right. If you have an idea and want to pursue it it's easy to get support and encouragement.

    Cons

    Top three worst things about BNA are 1) The union. 2) The union. 3) The union. They are not BNA employees and have created a very adversarial relationship between employees and managers. In units where the union is weak, the employees buy more stock, are prouder of the company and are much more satisfied with their jobs and work. In places where the union is stronger, the atmosphere is terrible. As other reviewers here point out, the union forces managers to promote the most senior regardless of performance and when layoffs occur they have to get rid of some good employees and keep bad ones because they're more senior.
    Also, most of the Pros above can also be Cons - stability means slow change and although you get encouragement for ideas, it takes a very long time to actually get an initiative funded and implemented. It is also much too common to hear employees say, "because that's the way we've always done it."
    Lastly, BNA has had great benefits for 30 years. However, 30 years ago they were ahead of their time. Now the rest of the world has caught up and the benefits are roughly comparable to any other company out there. So when you hear an employee say we have great benefits, take it with a grain of salt because they probably haven't looked at another company's offerings in 20 years. Furthermore, BNA pays at the low end of the scale because the employees think they have great benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just want to confirm what others here have said: phase out the old guard and bring up some of the bright new talent you've been cultivating inside. You've done a good job of bringing in new ideas by hiring from the outside but that has further hurt the loyal employees who have patiently waited for their turn at leadership. Much of the young talent has already left and more will continue to do so.
