I worked at Bloomberg L.P.

Pros

Variety of positions, though mobility seems to be limited. Free food and snacks and well kept office environment. Decent pay.

Cons

Very big brother like. All systems are centralized so management knows when you walked in and left and when you log on and if you are active. Once you are in a position you are at management's mercy. If you resign there is no returning regardless of the circumstances.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None. If things work for the company, no need to change. Perhaps more job mobility. As long as employess know what they are signing up for, it works.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Provides ample of opportunities to work on challenging technology centric problems (low latency, large scale). There is strong emphasis on providing outstanding services to customers. Compensation and benefits are better compared to peers. Ample opportunities for meaningful engagement in community volunteer projects as well.

    Cons

    This is a fast paced environment, with a great emphasis on team work. Job requires 'thinking like owner' and full engagement in all aspects of the work. This mode may not be suitable for everyone. Working from home is possible only in exceptional circumstances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is an outstanding place to work with great culture of excellence and transparency. Please keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    learn a lot about business news, smart and talented reporters, free snacks

    Cons

    lack of communication, disorganized, editorial disagreements between the desk and shows, limited opportunity to transition to other teams once you begin, limited growth opportunity, lots of meetings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management can be snarky, and they do not play to the strengths of their employees...there is also tremendous disconnect between the shows needs/wants and managements editorial suggestions..the desk should be scrapped and the people on it should just be dispatched to shows and digital
