    Former Employee - Financial Software Developer Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Developers 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 ManagementAdvice

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