    Pros

    Some the best and smartest people you will ever work with. Everyone here is a rockstar in their own right. Exciting projects and challenges and you are pioneering something that has never really been done before.

    Cons

    Long hours are the norm, employee perks and morale boosters are lacking. Compensation is middle of the road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bloom could benefit from activities and perks to motivate and reward the employees that all work very hard to make Bloom successful. Management is also a little top heavy. Promoting a flatter environment could spark more creativity and innovation among the less senior folks.
