I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Everything is team dependent
Pay, work ethics, quality of work etc.
In general, pay will be good in any team.
If you are in a relatively new team then you may be using C++ and somewhat latest technologies.

Cons

Most teams will not tolerate tardiness and late arrivals, however late departures are always welcome here (infact much needed).
Fortran and really old technologies are still prevalent in some teams. If you work there for 4 years, you are rendered almost useless for any other company.
Things are changing though and its much better.
There is definitely a lot of politics ( which is not obvious to leaf nodes)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less politics., 10B is a dream, then please make it 9B or 8B for all those hard-workers who have been chasing it. (10B is the revenue that Bloomberg targets)
