I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great office culture (very friendly, transparent, open, young), great work life balance, nice extra activities and optionals, good atmosphere, not bossy atmosphere where ideas can be heard and people feel free to speak up, very sensitive to diversity (internationally, minorities etc...)

Cons

Not very stimulating career path for an ambitious graduate in finance world, work is not stimulating (basically a knowledged customer service)

Advice to Management

Try to find out ways of stimulating the career path of individuals, maybe trying to set up an alumni scheme or something to facilitate exit into banking if people want it for a more rewarding career at some point (which would also help sales) similar to management consulting could be helpful

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

    Pros

    It's good to work for a media company that has deep pockets. I don't just mean the above-average compensation, benefits, nice offices, other perks. When this company puts its mind to something, it can throw resources at the problem. Whether it does or not is another issue. It has a great core product. The Bloomberg terminal, when used properly, is a remarkable device. A parallel Internet. Overall, the people I've worked with and met at the company have been decent, caring, hard-working people. The training options at the company are quite good but not always made available to everyone. You sometimes have to fight to get on courses.

    Cons

    It's not a media company. Media is a minor side business. It doesn't always have the best interests of media division at heart. They will work you hard. The 50-hour MINIMUM work week is often touted as a good thing, a competitive advantage. Expect to do 9-, 10-hour stints without the slightest break. This is the result of relentless cost-cutting over recent years. Time off is adequate. Decent for an American company. The company says it cares about professional growth but personal experience indicates otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in quality personnel Structure the company so as you can promote and develop the people with skills, experience and talent Don't burn people out
