    Former Employee - Contracts Representative in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Team members, free canteen,, supportive personal development, work can be satisfying

    Cons

    Poor management! some managers are put in place due to lack of staff at the time,, not having a shred of knowledge of what 'manager' actually means - some are more like play managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where there is a high turnover in staff,, you should think actually is it that people do not like the job,, or is management to blame.. and provide a system where this can be voiced with out backlash

    Pros

    - many knowledgable and extremely bright people
    - decent benefits other than salary

    - many incompetent and simply stupid people
    - promoting the wrong people for management positions
    - office politics
    - bureaucracy
    - lots of proprietary technologies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your employees and stop promoting people who suck up; improve employee's work/life balance (working hours!), remunerate people better for their hard work
