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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO
