Hard work. Top down management.

Reporter (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsSmart people, international colleagues, enough funding for reporting trips and congresses, nice office, good chances for advancement. Salaries good compared to other media. Very open to change, new policies or technologies are instituted very quickly. Young tea.

ConsVery demanding atmosphere, output metrics seem to be arbitrary, top down management of stories. Strict editing. The Bloomberg Way is close to a cult book. Can be a bit inflexible. Focus on moving stock prices, not story quality.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive reporters some power.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
