Current Employee - Senior Sales - Core Product in New York, NY
Current Employee - Senior Sales - Core Product in New York, NY

I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (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.
