I worked at Bloomberg L.P.

Pros

Free food all the time!

Cons

Monotonous work, no room for growth as a temp, the bathrooms are small for a pretty large building.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Yes, temps are expendable, but you could at least give them more notice before the contract ends. My team were notified that we're done an hour before the end of the day.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P.

    Pros

    Friendly co workers, free breakfast/ lunch/ dinners. The building is amazing and the parties are excellent. Overall great environment.

    Cons

    Senior managers are stuck up, and if they dont like you, you will know it and most likely wont be there for too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For interviewing just be confident and tell them the real reason why you want to work at bloomberg and show them the real you.

    Pros

    Cons

    Bloomberg's motto is: Get Things Done.
    You should develop your application as fast as possible. Nobody asks you about design. Nobody asks you to write any documentation.
    Just get things done.
    As the result Bloomberg has tones of spontaneously designed and not documented code.
    Most likely you will be hired to support this code.
    You will have to fix bugs and improve code which should be redesigned 10 years ago. But nobody will let you redesign it. Just get things done and fix the bug as fast as possible.

    Every day you will get new tickets to fix. This is the way how you will learn your project. The only way you could understand what to do is to ask your mentor.
    You will be very lucky if your mentor be able to explain you what you should do. He just has no time because he has a lot of tickets too.

    Bloomberg is chaos. If you like chaos this place is just for you.
    BTW please ready book "Bloomberg by Bloomberg"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
