I worked at Bloomberg L.P. as an intern for less than a 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.

Great job!
