Current Employee - Junior Financial Analyst in Skillman, NJ

I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Great place to start your career. Ability to learn from very bright people and work on projects that make a difference.

Cons

Position is temporary with virtually no opportunity to get promoted for even those that exhibit talent and solid work ethic. Many full-time employees hardly ever acknowledge contract staff as deserving enough to breathe in the same air as them even though they are bright young people feeling the effects of the economy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward those that have shown the necessary ability to contribute within the company.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic learning opportunities/extensive training. You'll meet a lot of great people.

    Cons

    You won't make a lot of money, even when you bring in revenue. There's an arrogance from the top, that the lowly sales person doesn't make it happen that the brilliant product sells itself and you're fortunate to be there, so they judge you on petty metrics that don't translate to revenue.

    There's an enormous lack of trust, you're treated like a child. Big brother looms. It's reminiscent of 1984.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Measure sales people success on sales, give people a sense of ownership and motivation, not a pat on the back and some silly award. Stop micromanaging people and have a little faith in the people that you hire.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
