Lack of Recognition for hard work and good work

Current Employee - Junior Financial Analyst in Skillman, NJ

I have been working at Bloomberg L.P.

Pros

- Free Meals Provided (food isn't 5 star, but it's free, which is a big cost advantage)
- Good Schedule
- Decent Work/Life Balance
- Pay is on par with other major firms

Cons

Recognition is key to professional growth. You need to be recognized for your quality work in order to seek out raises or promotions. Recognition is seriously lacking at this place. It's like the firm is made split up in different planets. Analysts are in one works and senior management is in another. There is so little communication that it's hard to get recognized, even if you put out quality performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to your employee's progress and establish a more structured professional growth ladder. Properly meet with, and evaluate your analysts and provide the good ones with the recognition and compensation they deserve.

    Pros

    Very smart people.
    Free snacks.
    Curved escalator (don't make fun of it. Ever).
    Charlie Rose show guest sightings in the lobby. Barbara Walters, Brad Pitt, the Sultan of Brunei, etc.
    They print money like the Federal Reserve. Don't tell them to change, 'cause it works.

    Cons

    4 stalls for a floor with 2200 people? Really?
    The 'Arbeit Macht Frei'-like maxims on the walls can occasionally stike one as proto-fascist. Just sayin'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add some pissoirs to the floor and bring back the Dove Bars.
    Run the curved escalator up from 5 to 6 instead of down from 6 to 5 one day a week.
    I won't bother to mention the elevator floor stopping system.
