    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Good compensations (salary, insurance, etc)
    - 20 paid off-days per year.
    - Easier to become a manager than most of other large tech companies

    Cons

    Really depends on the team. The following comments applies to most of the teams that I have heard of, but won't be true for everyone for sure.
    - Tech is really old and there are a lot of trivial work. It's hard to sharpen your tech skills. If you want to pursue a 'geek' career, that's not the place.
    - Bad work-life balance.
