    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company as a whole cares about employees. Benefits are top notch. Summer parties are the best and the company has excellent core values. Being a private company has a huge advantage that the company can invest in its people through education and other perks that are rarely found else where. They also promote volunteer work, being green, and focusing on your health.

    Cons

    Certain groups in the company can have a really bad working environment or a really awesome working environment. It is hit or miss (which tends to depend on who is managing the group). The company also works with really old technologies which is not transferable to other companies. The development environment (or lack of one) is really old and not efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace Middle management with real Leaders who are transparent and have a vision (most are only good at pushing people to get stuff done). Sometimes they don't know what they are doing and treat people like "bodys" and not people. Company culture has been changing from a small start-up feeling to more a corporate feeling. Give programmers the tools they need to do their jobs most effectively (like giving them a third monitor!!)
