    Pros

    Challenging, intellectually rewarding, dynamic working environment, feeling of being valued.

    Cons

    None of the above are so true outside of News and Tech.

    Advice to Management

    Outsource most of the grunt work of global data to India, or make it more automated.


  2. Good entry to finance, but nothing more.

    Pros

    Stable work conditions.
    Free food and cool pantry.
    Young and intelligent people.
    Good way to learn more about finance and how to use Bloomberg Terminal.
    OK basic salary.

    Cons

    Poor management.
    Repetitive work.
    If you are ambitious and driven, it can be frustrating to copy paste data.

    Advice to Management

    Dont hire too many ambitious, driven people that are going to leave sooner than you plan due to the tasks at work. Work is not that demanding, so please do not hire those that are over qualified and want something more challenging.
    Also, please as for Global Data, do not hire TLs that are not intelligent and just good in doing what more senior people want them to do.
