Highly stressful "big brother" culture, "subjective" reviews, "lifer" management with lack of leadership capabilities.

Sales Representative (Current Employee) New York, NY

Pros20 days of vacation, very defined roles, many people doing the same type of jobs.

ConsInexperienced managers, highly "micro-managed" environment where your hourly tasks are published on a firm-wide schedule where everyone can check what you are doing. Mandatory badge in/badge out system viewable by everyone at the firm. No one has a cubicle so expect to work in desks where you are side by side with colleagues. There are no cafeterias or places where you can eat lunch, strategically devised so you will have to eat at your desks. If you are someone who needs rigid structure and micromanagement, this is the place for you! Many "lifers" stay because the company rewards loyalty- the longer you stay at the firm, you will be incrementally rewarded, which creates countless "lifer" management who have little diverse expertise as they this is the same job they have held for 20 years since college.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe less risk-averse and experience another company other than Bloomberg.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    All stress, all pressure

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) New York, NY

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P.

    Pros: If you feel the need to get a Big Name on your resume, like I did,… Cons: Unfortunately, the business has accumulated incredible of bagage around software development and the byzantine terminal always yields less… Advice to Senior Management: Complexity kills. This has been recognized in building a newer version of terminal, but the core of the complexity process… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
