Proprietary software, high school type work environment

Senior Software Developer (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsNice benefits and higher than average pay. Free snacks and drinks and various training programs. Larger than normal bonus packages.

ConsThe atmosphere at Bloomberg is very "high schoolish." A lot of insecure people trying to justify their job when it could be very easily eliminated. Tons of bloat and bureaucracy. Not a place where you want to work if you want to work in a typical software development environment. If you like to re-invent the wheel or work on Fortran, this place is for you. If you want to gain real skills to help you grow technically - look elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your management and hold them to task. Try to look at what is really important and not just because you a series of managers that have built up little empires to make them look important.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
