    Current Employee - Data Analyst (Temp) in Skillman, NJ

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get free breakfast (continental) and lunch, as well as snacks pretty much whenever you want. You don't have a whole lot of responsibility. Temps usually stick together, so you'll have plenty of workmates to commiserate with. If you're looking for a job that pays about $16/hr and fairly mindless work, sign up. The qualifications to become a temp is having a clean record and a finance/accounting/econ bachelors degree and a pulse. But on the plus side, they don't dare expect you to log more than your 8 hours (+30 minute lunch) a day. Even the jerks there respect that.

    Cons

    Temps are usually ignored or basically given permanent employees' work when they are too busy or too lazy to do. I don't really ever have any contact with the team leader unless there's a serious problem with a project. Some won't bother to learn your name or even address you as something other than "temp". Some people will treat you like a gopher or an idiot but with that said, there are some genuinely nice permanent employees - they just can't do anything for you or are too busy to give you guidance. I think in order to get anything out of this fairly miserable experience, you've got to be a self-starter, that is learn the terminal as quickly and as deeply as possible as it's widely used out there in the finance world (Mike Bloomberg didn't get to be a billionaire for nothing) and learn from ADSKs to see what outsider Bloomberg Terminal users use the terminal for (You will probably benefit from your exposure to Bloomberg on the inside when you inevitably have had enough and lead). Your skills will go unnoticed - all of them. They hire entry-level permanent employees in this order: Interns, outside applicants and then temps. Know one thing for certain: this is only a stop-gap. You pretty much have zero chance to advance. After a month or two you'll be searching for jobs. So sorry to be a downer but it's best you know all this in advance.

    My commute is really bad, but even that can't be blamed on the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just look to outsiders and former interns for permanent positions. You have temps right under your nose ready and willing to help your business to grow. It is a humiliating and demoralizing experience when you see the absolute morons and jerks in permanent positions succeed and you get passed over and over for an opportunity to become a permanent employee.

    Doesn't Recommend
