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

I have been working at Bloomberg L.P.

Pros

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

Cons

Inexperienced 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 ManagementAdvice

Be less risk-averse and experience another company other than Bloomberg.

    Pros

    free food is not bad; also the coffee is free; don't have to pay premiums for healthcare which is nice

    Cons

    scheduled work hours are eight am to six pm and the pay is not too attractive for an educated new yorker

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would cut back on hours and increase pay to increase morale and lower the turnover of key employees; more training opportunities
