I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great work/life balance. Good benefits and decent vacation. Free food each day which was pretty good.

Cons

Management doesn't have any fresh ideas because they refuse to bring in managers from the outside. Pay is below average but probably fair for the work and hours required. A great place to start a career but tough to get out once in. Most jobs don't transfer well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get employees who know the products more involved with decisions since they are the ones working with clients each day.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P.

    Pros

    Nicer to be employed than unemployed.

    Cons

    Knowing the employee turnover and general opinions of employees (that you hear in the office), I don't understand who writes these 4-5 star reviews? Bloomberg HR maybe? My recollection is that pretty much everybody plans on leaving when the first opportunity comes, as the company is rotten to the core. The managers are either young pets, who are brown nosing the seniors, or mediocre "Tony Middle Level Manager"s, who have stayed at Bloomberg since 1986, as they are too incompetent to get a job anywhere else.

    In London, the turnover is the highest, and in Princeton some people stay longer as they are less other opportunities around. Bloomberg is not the first choice for anybody! People work at Bloomberg only because they have to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are not a commodity. Do to high turnover, many of your employees go to work for your clients. This makes your sales efforts very difficult, as your former employees don't want to see a terminal on their desks for a justified reason.
