Good company to have on your resume. Terrible company to work for!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsGood health benefits from day 1. Free snacks in the pantry.

ConsEverything is based on favoritism and not on competence nor qualifications. My manager was extremely unprofessional and always promoted people who she was friends with. Mainly several 20 year olds that took the effort to kiss some butt. Straight out of college kids that had no experience and became team leaders within as soon as three months and were managing senior employees with more exeprience and qualifications within the department. On top of that, the Head of the department seemed not to care about these circumstances as well. The whole structure of the company is a charade. I couldn't wait to get out of there, even though it took me two years to resign. Why I sateyed that long? I was hoping for things to change and improve. I didn't happen.

Advice to Senior ManagementPUt the right people in management and be fair to your employees.

    It's a big company, there's a lot of room for good teams and bad teams

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


    Pros: It's very bright and sunny, which might seem trivial but I personally find it very good for my mood to work in a bright office.… Cons: Some of the infrastructure is legacy. This shouldn't be a con for any seasoned developer, it's a fact of life, but if you're a whiny… Advice to Senior Management: Revamp the project and trouble ticketing systems to better reflect the realities of software project development. Also, mix up the floors… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 3 years

Lots of old, legacy policies, they grind you and don't want you to ever leave their building, very hard to get… Advice to Senior Management: Get with the times and move faster on people, products… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
