Former Employee - Software Developer in New York, NY

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

Pros

Good training program, especially from outside lecturers.
Fanciest office I have ever seen. Great view on 29th floor.
Working hours generally ok, some teams are busier.
Good benefits for people who are married/have children.
People are generally nice.

Cons

This is based on my own experience, YMMV.
Salary has no correlation with how hard you work/how much work you did. Reviews/raises are subject to favoritism of your manager. If your manager is nice, you are lucky; otherwise you are underpaid compared with your peers.
Micromanagement was so much that I felt no work could ever be finished. Your own ideas don't matter at all, so it's better to shut up and do whatever you are told to.
Lots of legacy code, most of the time was spent to figure out a couple of seemingly trivia issues.

    Pros

    very nice building, a lot of snacks, drinks. Good for ppl without a computer science degree if you want a software developer position

    Cons

    Using outdated software development technologies. the process is terrible/the code quality is terrible. Get job done, and it's doesn't matter how you get it done, this is how you are evaluated.
