Pros

Gives you a lot of freedom at work, encourages changes within the team. Lately they have been lenient in allowing people to work from home.

Cons

Because of being a private company, things change on drop of a hat when comes from top. Sets very high target which causes them to not meet it.

    Pros

    Bloomberg News is a place where you'll learn a lot, be challenged and work very hard. The company is all changing. There are a lot of talented journalists here, though many are misused. Resources, salary, benefits as good or better than nearly all other news organizations.

    Cons

    One of the unfriendliest, poorly managed places I've ever worked. Many middle and senior managers are poorly trained, with weak skills, even for the news business. Many are promoted more for their ability to dump on their subordinates and sheep-like adherence to the "Bloomberg Way." Managers are routinely rude, condescending and treat people poorly. Most people dislike working here but do it because of few other choices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out the dead wood at the very top, breathe new life into the place and get do more training for managers. Do 360-degree feedback for all managers at least every 2 years to identify those unfit for their jobs.
