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

Pros

Great benefits, Diverse and friendly culture/environment, Strong client base, Opportunity for internal mobility, Good resources available through various internal teams/colleague's backgrounds

Cons

Many employees are in-the-box thinkers more taking orders than taking ownership. Several employees break down barriers while there are many more just coming in for their 8-5pm day. Very metrics driven - to the point of it being a negative in most employee's eyes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your top performers better. Pay your mediocre employees less (and fire them more often.)

You are an innovative company with impressive products - make sure you retain and attract top talent where it's needed to stay relevant. Can't rely on terminal business forever.
