    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    stability (generally), salary is generally competitive, good benefits package, generally healthy work environment. Interesting seminars and chances to meet interesting people

    Cons

    culture of promoting people who are recognized for being hard edged and process focused. results in a many "company men" being pushed up the ranks at the expense of very smart people who do not fit this mold

    Advice to Management

    reduce the focus on timelines. rather, spend significantly more time truly understanding the problem being addressed, the utility of the task being developed to solve this problem, and the quality of the output of this process.

    Pros

    Great pay, great people to work with, good culture, good chances to grow in career and learn from some of the industry's brightest people. Also quite a flat structure.

    Cons

    Very very competitive environment. Only join the company if you know you are willing to sacrifice on your work life balance and personal life to an extent.

    Advice to Management

    Give more emphasis on team bonding, organize more outings, allow flex work time for full time employees in all offices.

    Pros

    Hands off approach. Results oriented and leave you to create your own strategy to get the work done. Flexible on schedule.

    Cons

    The upward mobility is not linear. They are not big on advancement. Upper Management is very unsympathetic to ambition which is unfortunate.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to ambitious workers. Create situations for advancement and consider raises and an incentive for quality work. I love the autonomy and hands off approach.
