    Pros

    - Very transparent, flatly managed; lots of opportunity to get involved at intern level
    - Great benefits for interns: professional development programs, intern socials, invitation to company summer picnic, TONS OF FREE FOOD
    - The BBG tower is gorgeous
    - Intern projects often lead to implementation
    - Cannot log more than 40 hours/week outside of FSD and some other departments

    Cons

    - Some managers are horrible and do not receive adequate training
    - The Bloomberg way of doing things is great, but tough to adapt to once you've left the firm(not all workplaces are the same). The BBG way is also not interpreted equally by everyone, so some people can get quite hostile
    - Good feedback is rare; critical feedback is often poorly received and also very difficult to provide
    - Everyone moves very fast. This can be great, but they often forget that interns are not on the same page. Requires a lot of initiative for an intern to get going quickly.
    - Can't work overtime unless your team requires it or you're in FSD.

    Advice to Management

    I loved my time at BBG despite having an awful manager and working in a department that did not have any full-time opportunities. Interns should be paired with managers that are adequately prepared to coach and mentor, not b****, gossip, and critique unnecessarily. A very immature and unprofessional manager can damage an impression; it was partly responsible for turning me away from considering full-time opportunities in other departments.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Bloomberg is a great company with great people. There's a very open work environment and everyone is very approachable. I would definitely recommend it to recent college grads.

    Cons

    Fairly young crowd in my department so it may not be ideal for people who've been out of school for a while.
