I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than a year

Pros

Encouraging work environment and great colleagues. Bloomberg takes care of it's employees and promotes a healthy culture, both in and out of the workplace

Cons

A relatively flat hierarchy with not enough opportunities for vertical advancement. In some cases favor management approval by is more easily gained by being at your desk, instead of actual productivity. Compensation could also be a bit better

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Good for entry level salesperson
    - Cutting edge technology
    - Good People.
    - Snacks

    Cons

    - Poor sales managers - lots of micromanagement and focus on metrics unrelated to sales
    - Abundance of initiatives passed down to sales force unrelated to true selling. No longer promote independent thought
    - No true sales people, just account managers
    - Low pay versus comparable firms. Long term bonus not attainable as management purposely sets unrealistic targets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Learn to value true sales skills
    - Pick sales managers that are good at developing talent.
    - Value your employees
    - Enough with the initiatives and encourage independent thought and projects that lead to sales.

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

    Pros

    Great medical coverage. Free snacks on multiple floors throughout the day. Medical center on site. Opportunities to move up as well as to take positions in other offices around the world.

    Cons

    Workload a lot for the amount of staff. I am referring to IT as that is my department, but seem to hear that a lot from people in other groups/departments as well.
