Pros

Very bright, committed news people. Extraordinary depth on markets and financial coverage.

Cons

Long hours not for everyone (but I didn't mind). Style requirements can inhibit clear expression.

    Pros

    If you are brand new and could not find other options, perhaps you may get your train in faniance here. Remeber, try to switch to others as soon as possible when you get a chance.

    Cons

    1. One will not be surprised to find those peoples who did not know much will be promoted to the manager's positions if he knows the office poltics.
    2. A company that is practicing the "manage people out" strategy when one becomes 40+.
    3. No career path future even if working hard.

    Advice to Management

    No need to give any comments. It is the company culture.

    Pros

    very good compensation, good health insurance plan. free snack and soda, breakfast.

    Cons

    1.No career growth at all, there are too many political stuff in this company. I saw many people who don't contribute more than others in the team but get promoted to team leader or manager, just because they have good personal relationship with their boss.
    2. Not very professional in terms of software development. Bloomberg hire a lot of non-professional person to do the software development. Many people never or seldom developed software before they join this company. So there are a lot of poor code waiting for you to maintain and fix.

    Advice to Management

    1. promote those who can get job done,less political things
    2. hire professional person to do the professional job.
