    Pros

    Interviewed in January. 3 rounds, a telephone, an Assessment Day and finally a vintervieww.w.ce inteeview. Interviews were not too difficult.

    Cons

    The challenges were within the interviews. If you ssomething on your cv, be sure to be able to back it up. And know exactly why you're picking Bloomberg and not their competitor.

    Advice to Management

    If interviews would be shorter. Interviews lasted typically 90-120 minutes. However, they do need to filter candidates so I understand.

    Pros

    Lots of young people. Great summer parties. Great kitchen.

    Cons

    Team leaders know less which is frustrating for team members. Team leaders always same profile: tough but with no management skills. A lot of micro managing. Checking the minute you enter the door and if it's 1 minute past you get told off. Feels like a school with teachers drying to discipline you, no respect for people.

    Pros

    After one year spent in regional office I can say that Bloomberg has very high organizational culture within company, great learning process, everyone is happy to help you. Work-life balance can be easily sustained.

    Cons

    As a fixed-term employee I do not have any benefits as private health care or bonuses.

    Pros

    Good company to work for if you want to get into the finance sector, relaxed culture free snacks and drinks provided in all their offices

    Cons

    Flat structure so promotion is not necessary a great thing, in house training can be poor when provided by someone who just wants to hit their agreed personal target on the hope of getting a non existent pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workforce before making ridiculous decisions
