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

    Pros

    When free food is the bigger pro you can think of, there isn't much to like about. Benefits are good too I guess. And since they hire a lot of fresh-out-of-college grads, it can be a good starting place.

    Cons

    The work is very unsatisfying on all levels. New technologies are seldom used, a lot of work pressure and lot of workload, HR doesn't care two hoots about you in any aspect, boring and tedius work, very closed environment, very hierarchical and very bureaucratic, very few career growth prospects, very narrow learning environment as teams are not encouraged to learn from each other and/or collaborate.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
