Good experience at a good company

Financial Software Developer Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsThe pay is good, the people are smart, the snacks are free. Work is generally interesting, and a good deal of flexibility is given to make your own hours and choose a project that is engaging for you.

ConsDevelopers often have to support legacy software that has no chance of ever being replaced. The company has some really proprietary practices, architectures, etc., that do not translate into building your programming skills in the world at large. This often makes it tough to transition out of Bloomberg to another company.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive interns more choice in what division or team they work for. It leads to a more productive experience for both sides.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
