I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (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.

    Pros

    This is a Great company that is well poised be a big player in the Marketplace for a very long time. They offer great benefits and they do take care of their valued employees. This is a very dynamic, never a dull moment, environment. Once your in, there are abundant opportunities for movement within the company, both locally and internationally.

    Cons

    It used to be a lot more tight knit, when I first started, 15+ years ago. This is an unfortunate byproduct of maximum growth over the years. Personally I think it was a fair trade to give up some of the closeness of days, past. Fortunately, the closeness comes from your work group now.
