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

Pros

Awesome location, snacks, usually interesting work and good hours. The employees seem very content and taken care of.

The full-timers were very welcoming to the interns, inviting us to play frisbee after work. (The work-life balance was good -- people normally left around 6 pm to do that sort of thing.)

The interns had a week of training which also allowed us to socialize, and the intern class ended up pretty close and brave.

Cons

The codebase is largely old and kludgy (like any 30+ year old company). They spent a week teaching the interns how to use their proprietary stack, though, and it's pretty effective at what it does.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great job!

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P.

    Pros

    Great culture, takes care of employees well. Good salary, benefits, bonuses. Smart people. Great picnic. Good brand.

    Cons

    Flat, hard to get promoted, until recently, senior management is mostly inbred. Almost always build in-house vs. best-in-class off-the-shelf for even mundane stuff and results not too great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look externally for best practices for both strategy and execution

    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.
