I worked at Bloomberg L.P. as an intern for less than a yearPros
It's great to work at a place that has free snack that are "BWELL approved", beautiful offices, and amazing story behind it. Many people are motivated and great at what they do.
For interns, there are many interesting and fun events throughout the summer.Cons
The following might have happened me somewhere else too, but it still should not happen.
- First of all, I was the first female being in the history of my group; the HR group (all girls) was close to us. I received multiple warnings from different HRs saying that I dress in a way that draws too much attention of my male colleagues. Also, they were often rumoring about some girl saying that "Apparently, she is very smart, but...". Anytime I needed a confirmation of employment for landlords, or something like that, all of them but one could find a reason why they could not help me.
So, if you dare to be a girl in finance / tech and look healthy, be aware that it's a crime on the eyes of HRs, because they have to do shopping online while you're coding.
- Obviously, the problem above won't apply to everyone. The company is huge, and has multiple divisions (Research & Development, Sales & Analytics, News, etc.) that operate almost independently. So, as an any sufficiently large sample of people, you can find some parasites on the system. I don't want to give specific names and provide more specific information, because I don't want to be identified. I happened to be in a group whose boss is a good friend with the guy who takes care of financing projects. Even though our group's "project" was essentially research on previous research, 15 people were still paid to work on it.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Make sure that you are employing people who still are working. Also, if you care so much about making Wall Street a fair environment, make sure you are not employing people who are racist or sexist.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
