    Pros

    free snacks, drinks, food. Excellent healthcare benefits, bike to work program, smoking cessation, philanthropy programs, entrepreneurial in values, innovative, fast-paced, everyone is connected, full transparency to everything. Promotions are quick if you are an all-star performer.

    Cons

    complete transparency, you need to work on the Street and then go to BBG to earn a nice salary. They work recent college grads to the bone; you're chained to the desk with golden handcuffs. need to drink the company kool-aid to make a difference and get promoted. Everything is becoming automated and tasks become mundane. No work/life balance. Always have to be connected to the terminal.

    Advice to Management

    automation of everything removes the value of the employee. There is always a story behind numbers.

    Pros

    401k match, free healthcare, free snacks

    Cons

    raises are ridiculous. Usually 1%. Salaries are very low to start with and super hard to get any sort of serious raise (best case scenario is considered to be 2% in my position). A ton of reviews - 2 big ones a year. If you get a bad review (anything worse than "Exceeds expectations", say good bye to your raise. NO opportunity to move up at all.

    Pros

    If you have to get in the financial industry as a tech guy, it is a great company that has a lot to offer.

    Cons

    Still not as cool as silicon valley companies from the tech perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Keep introducing new technologies into the company for product development.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, coffee and snacks 24/7 (pantry #1 thing here), dinners served monday through thursday (helpful when trying to save money in NYC!), we are given actual work (no fetching coffee).

    Cons

    It's a fast-paced environment and you are given a lot of work to finish in a short amount of time. If you can't handle such a place, or would prefer a more laid-back environment, I'd say work somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your interns! We are here as much to learn as to add value to the company. I have been having a great time so far, but only this past week was given a task that requires more responsibility of my part.
