I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The pay is decent and 100% medical benefits for the entire family.

Cons

Lots of old legacy code to deal with and use of proprietary API. No privacy and no cubicles at all. Everything is an open area like a trader. Hard to concentrate when you hear and see everything. Too much politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of current management and start anew.

    Pros

    Great office to work in and benefits package is excellent.

    Cons

    Long hours, for a account manager to work 8-6 plus travel, this is rather demanding. There is also very little to no growth despite how they will change titles of employees every 6 months. Just look around, all the senior folks have been there 20+ years and are going no where. The chances of one getting a decent position to move from Account Management to somewhere else are non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your salary growth for top performers is just terrible. Stop treating everyone like this is a union job where you trade so called security for no chance to move.
