I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

-Its all about looks here. Everything in the company is shiny and bright.
-Perks used to be very good but most of them have been removed

Cons

-Almost no growth potential.
-Impossible to get into management unless you are blessed by folks who have been there for over 20 years.
-No work life balance. You will have to take support calls after midnight, about 2-3 times a week.
-The skills you acquire here are of very little use outside.
-Join only if you are very political and want to work there more than 2 decades.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-You guys know most of you talent has left in the last few years and you are the reason.
-When was the last time you read any technical material.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P.

    Pros

    Great salary and vacation time. 12 week training program brings your coding up to speed. Good snacks and beverages. I got to move to NYC and be able to afford it.

    Cons

    Most technology is relatively old. A lot of work is maintenance of code written 10,15,20 years ago. Not much room for innovation especially when all projects are on extremely tight deadlines.
