    Not a place for good programmers. Hacking is encouraged.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast-paced work; Dull moments are rare. But that's becase ... (see "Cons").

    Cons

    Bad programmers abound. Emphasis is on rolling out software that's quickly written and does its job with no concern for software standards. I'm amazed how much untested software is rolled out to customers every week. Customers are used for testing.

    Very political atmosphere. Top management encourages competition between different teams, resulting in vitiated atmosphere.

    Company has grown very big and is dragged in different directions

    Core product ("The Terminal") has hit a plateau and things will be difficult unless radical innovations happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allocate more time to each project and build a better product. Have a long-term vision of what your product is going to be and stick to it.
