    Pros

    This is a real meritocracy where your hard work will translate into opportunity. The company is financially and structurally stable, so you aren't distracted by quarterly shareholder meetings and pointless reorganizations.

    Cons

    Many in the management hierarchy have never worked elsewhere in tech; this leads to a bit of one-dimensional outlook on how things should be done, how employees should be treated and how they should behave. Also, there is a tendency to under-react to accomplishments and over-react to mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more expressive about employee accomplishments and demonstrate trust in employees.

    Pros

    Bloomberg has a young, fast-paced culture that welcomes fresh college grads and constantly looks for ways to innovate, improve their products, or access new markets. The benefits are great including everything from free food (all day, every day) to 401(k) employer matches up to 15% of your annual salary, fully-sponsered and reimbursed MBA programs and CFA programs, and 4 weeks paid vacation from the first day you start. There is also an extensive 3-month training program for new hires so onboarding is very smooth and easy. No need to worry about being thrown into something that you have no idea how to do.

    Cons

    A significant amount of time is spent on doing the same task over and over again. It limits the time you can actually work on meaningful or challenging products and can become boring and mundane. The majority of roles in the company are centered on data ENTRY rather than data ANALYSIS as they lead you to believe. There are many brilliant people in this company with advanced degrees and designations such as MBAs and CFAs, yet they still do the same mundane tasks as others just starting at the company....ENTERING data....a task that could be completed by someone with a high school diploma. Nonetheless, the pay does consistently increase as you stay with the firm and there is significant opportunity to advance to managerial roles within your first 4-7 years with the firm.
