I worked at Bloomberg L.P. as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Your colleagues will take you under their wing and you will learn a lot. The workplace environment is unrivaled in terms of a media company. Of course, there is also the pantry with a great selection of food ranging from chips to organic snacks.

Cons

Workplace environment and getting around takes some getting used to, but it's all about assimilating into the culture of a company which always takes some time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If it isn't broken, don't fix it.

    A bit like the Borg: assimilate or be destroyed

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    High-energy, flashy offices; solid name on the CV; product still viewed as a necessity on the Street. This can be a good place to start right out of university - like college with a paycheck. Play the game well and one can be handsomely rewarded.

    Cons

    They have managed to institutionalize the old adage "who you know not what you know" ; little rhyme or reason to compensation (no titles to maintain parity); certain senior execs are untouchable and run their own fiefdoms, often through fear and yelling. If you aren't working 8-6 (and then some), expect the "bankers hours?" comment...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. (They would ignore it anyway.)

    Pros

    Great office building, great co-workers

    Hire more young people to change your outlook over newer products
