    Pros

    Employees matter. Opinions and effort matter. If you want to achieve, grow, excel, the system is there for you. The company invests in its people and expects the best. Some might call it pressure, some of us call it encouragement to do our best in everything we do.

    Cons

    Remembering our roots as we get huge and global. The Bloomberg Way *is* a real thing. As we acquire, hire, and expand, those mantras need to be shared & promoted WHILE taking on new life and legs. This is the root of our brand, and there should be a modicum of understanding & promotion of it in every employee around the world.

    Pros

    lots of perks, great benefits, strong infrastructure, new technology, profitable private company that can make changes without shareholder approval. lots of employees (great for networking).

    Cons

    promotes employees to management positions based on tenure, not on merit, few financial rewards for high performers, not as many opportunities to switch departments as previous years. too many mid level managers that "play the bloomberg koolaid game" instead of actually managing people and helping them grow in their careers

    Advice to Management

    fix your management structure, having so many bad managers is killing your growth potential -- and creating high turnover. stop spending so much money on snacks and start paying your employees more. benefits are great but people want higher take home pay. great employees leave to increase compensation.
