    I worked at Bloomberg Television full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - News in New York, NY

    I worked at Bloomberg Television full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Pretentious 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 ManagementAdvice

    Think 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.

    Former Employee - Social Media Intern in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Social Media Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Bloomberg Television as an intern (less than an year)

    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)

    Cons

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

    I worked at Bloomberg Television full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate Intimidatio; Appreciate The Employees; Utilize and Trust Employee Talents; Promote Work-Life Balanance
