    Relatively attractive entry level salary and good work/life balance, but ultimately a dead end for a finance career.

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

    Pros

    - Modern buildings and advanced IT infrastructure - Young environment and high turnover among employees gives opportunities of career progression after only 1 year - Strong brand recognized worldwide - Dynamic company in terms of new products and ideas - Friendly environment

    Cons

    - Limited career advancements: there is no specialization and the knowledge acquired during the first 6 months is enough to work there until retirement. - Workload depends on the team, in Global Data some teams are extremely busy others count the minutes to go home at 6 pm. - Management is not competent. After 1-2 years "normal" analysts that did not leave the company get promoted to team leader. - Absolutely no effort to retain high achievers - Very limited transferable skills... Equity analysts are simple Data analyst. No modelling skills are required, which means that joining an IB later is almost impossible. - Bonus is very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Select better team leaders. Try to solve the huge culture differences between BI and Global Data. Invest in juniors and in retaining the best. The 2/3 years turnover is ridiculous...
