I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great people, nice benefits, good training, great career opportunities for people with a Finance background, and free snacks and drinks.

Cons

No real cons for now. It is my first real job so I cannot really compare. Maybe a downside is that work can be stressful at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing but make that young people are given a chance to really show their leadership skills if they have the ability and potential to.

    Pros

    hmm....Friendly colleagues and 1 month notice period.

    Cons

    I have been working for this meat factory for 2 years now and if you like a sweatshop work environment this is the company for you.

    *Salary is crap and new hires get more paid than people who have stayed with the company for more than 3 years.
    *You will learn NO, i repeat, NO transferable skills, except knowing two or three functions on the terminal very well.
    *The work is repetitive and requires no intellect at all. A monkey with half of a brain would have no problem doing the "analysis" required for this type of work.
    *Evaluation is based on some stupid black box metric system which boils down to how much you suck up to management. Brown nosing is key.
    *There is no career progression whatsoever. I do not consider being promoted to team leader or rather admin leader as a career progression.
    *There are no words in the world that would describe how bad and appalling the management style is. Foxconn mangement is way better than BBG.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask Foxconn management for help on improving work environment, at least to "Chinese" style factory level.
