I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Mountains of chips and rivers of soda... at the same time an on going compain to "B fit"
No co-pay medical and 4 weeks of vacation, which is plenty needed to recover from all "innovations" that going on.

Cons

I am a bit lost after reading all 5 star reviews. Was I working for the same company??? Is there another Bloomberg? The company I spent >>> read wasted<<< several years at is a perfect example of ACME INC. Management that's been there forever. No advancement opportunities at all. Any direction you look, you'll see red tape. The only way to go up the corp ladder is to branch off your own group. As a result there are hundreds of those groups with very narrow set of tasks, way to improve marketability (not). Propriatary dated technology throughout. ... Management that will not define anything and has very little to none technical skills!

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

    Pros

    Free Food
    Fixed hours
    Nice fish tanks

    Cons

    Nepotism
    Selfish team leaders who are only worried about metrics and way too young to understand management.
    The Sales Manager from Brighton is also very difficult to deal with, and tends to have his favourites

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt a more egalitarian approach!
