Pros

Free food, fair compensation, good place to start out a career, learn the Bloomberg professional service whle working here. Good.

Cons

not a whole lot of ability to move up within company, mostly all very lateral movement and not much room for growth.

Advice to Management

Make it better for temps and low level employees they are the ones who run your business and do the grunt work

    Pros

    The benefits package is great without a doubt. That is probably the best thing about the company. Also the free snacks in the pantry. We have discounts and perks and certain stores, gyms, etc.

    Cons

    The pay is low. If you don't come to the company already demanding a high salary then it will take forever to get salary increases. Also salary increases only happen once a year! Even if you move into a new position, you don't get your new salary, so you can spend months working in a higher paying role, but the new salary doesn't kick in until the 1 year period. Also the long hours. The norm is to work 9/10 hour days depending on what dept you are in, but if you are overloaded with work (which is pretty often) you're looking at 10 /11 hour days! Most of the time upper management doesn't recognize the extra time that you're putting in anyway.

    Advice to Management

    When employees are doing a good job, let them know. Don't just harp on the things that need to be improved.

    Pros

    Training program for out-of-college new hires is very thorough. Knowledge learned in the initial year is very useful. It is substantial in both quantity and quality.

    Cons

    Company is very fast paced, so there's no time to think through the design. It is more important at the company to get the results out rather than have a solid design - ie. create a hack, a short-term band-aid solution that will fix the issue at hand and get the product out the door, even if the hack will create huge amount of problems down the road. Also junior programmer's bonus is not decided based on the person's performance, but rather divided from the left overs in the bonus pool after the management and the senior developers gets their share. (Each department get a dedicated bonus pool)

    Advice to Management

    Please treat your junior programmers the same way as you would with senior ones in terms of opinion, design decisions and bonus. Do not treat us like another piece of resources.
