I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

great environment with a good office location. free snacks and beverages all day. you will find friendly co-workers in almost all the teams

Cons

large flat management structure and it can be tough to learn new technologies. Most of the proprietary stuff is non transferrable if you switch jobs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

let the information flow freely down the organization

    Pros

    Free food everywhere, much of it healthy.
    Congenial environment, most-friendly.
    Great benefits.

    Cons

    Very competitive. Every one is angling for a higher position, which gets exhausting.
    Management constantly is changing (I had 5 managers in a year), lots of movement...good and bad.
    For a technology company I found it humorous that everything, even the internal CRM, is based on a terminal environment that looks like it is from an Apple IIe. Horrible internal tech.
    Workaholics, mostly younger environment. I suppose this is typical NYC style but work is everything. And everything is designed to monitor you and keep you working as much as possible for as long as possible. Many managers abuse the ability to keep tabs on people.
    Not a nimble company due to its size, so much of the internal technology can't change.
    Large institutional inertia to change unless forced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward experience instead of looking for reasons to move older workers over and out.

    Pros

    It's a very friendly work environment.
    If you are really good, they would provide fairly competitive compensation.
    People are are more fun to work with compared with other typical IT companies. My understanding is that to have a successful career here, you really need have a passion for finance.

    Cons

    it would be nice to raise the hiring bar
