    Great company with a lot of unhappy people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey like to hire people with international experience. Great brand. Perks like extensive health benefits, free food on the premises.

    ConsYou're just a cog in the machine. Many unhappy people who stay there because of the golden handcuffs. Shockingly bad middle management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so focused on upward management. Think of structural changes to make the place more efficient and happier.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    AVOID

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Pay competitiive salary
    - Have lots of money to spend on projects

    Cons- TV station run by magazine executives with no TV experience
    - Boys club of unqualified ivy league kid managers
    - Zero opportunity for advancement

    Advice to Senior Management- Fire all useless management and start over
    - Try hiring from within company
    - Give people opportunity to succeed instead of micro managing

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place, unhappy people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBeautiful environment and people. The company has an incredible reputation.

    ConsVery unhappy place where employees hardly talk to each other as they prefer e-mail.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood editors make bad managers. The CEO should stop being afraid of his staff and spend more time speaking to them than to the media.

    Blind leading the blind

    News (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsCar service for off-hour shifts. Impressive building. Free snacks. Salary higher than industry average.

    ConsPretentious staffers who know very little about actual news, but have an Ivy League education so they're given positions they'd have to work years for anywhere else. Little to no value placed on journalism ethics. The company is full of "lifers" who are there for the retirement and salary package and don't care about innovation or striving to do better. The general atmosphere is very serious, despite the fact that the television division doesn't even have enough viewers to warrant a Nielsen rating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink outside the box. Reward original thoughts and actual experience in TV instead of solely going on number of years on the job or a Princeton degree.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place to intern

    Social Media Intern (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    Pros-Great people/great open culture
    -Very structured intern program with lots of opportunities to see other divisions of the company
    -Company picnic!
    -genuine interest in teaching interns
    -Much better pay than other TV internships (which are often min. wage)

    ConsThey hire full time on an as-needed basis so good work as an intern won't guarantee you a job

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Bloomberg is a stressful employer and it does not live up to the potential it has.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe Compensation is Above Average , The Benefits Package is Among the Best if Not the Best in Broadcasting, The Snack Bar Provides Healthy Choices that Can Amount to Small Meals and There is an Opportunity to Work With Some Very Talented Peers.

    ConsThe Stress Level is Unecessarily High, There is a Level of Fear and Intimidation that Can Border on Abuse, The Expertise of Its Employees is Often Ignored and Its Commitment to Produce A Competitive TV Product Independent of the Terminal, Terminal Customer and the Print Division No Matter How Often It Was Verbalized Was Just Lip Service

    Advice to Senior ManagementEliminate Intimidatio; Appreciate The Employees; Utilize and Trust Employee Talents; Promote Work-Life Balanance

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
