Bloomberg BNA enthusiastically embraces the concept of diversity. We recognize that having a diverse workforce is paramount to our success. A diverse workforce brings a variety of unique and valuable skills and perspectives to our company. Bloomberg BNA's definition of diversity goes beyond race and gender. Our definition of diversity includes the following: race, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, religion, national origin, educational background, parental status, political affiliation, and other intangibles such as ideas, procedures, and ways of doing things. We believe that a broad definition of diversity fosters an environment of inclusion.

We've created an EEO/Diversity committee to support our commitment to diversity. The committee is responsible for meeting and discussing diversity initiatives that will assist us in our efforts to create an environment that embraces the concepts of respect, tolerance, and awareness of differences.

Bloomberg BNA's leadership and management unequivocally supports our commitment to diversity. This is important in our efforts to achieve our goals to:

  • Actively recruit a diverse workforce;
  • Foster an atmosphere of inclusion and equitable participation by all employees;
  • Request the participation of minority employees on panels, task forces, and working groups;
  • Establish corporate community outreach programs that will enable Bloomberg BNA to remain the employer of choice for future generations;
  • Develop programs to assist employees in balancing work life and family life;
  • Provide all employees with opportunities and training to take on leadership roles;
  • Provide equal opportunities for employees to advance commensurate with personal goals and abilities;
  • Develop a diversity plan with metrics that measures our success.

Our efforts have not gone unnoticed. We have received numerous accolades and awards for our commitment to diversity. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has recognized the organization as an employer whose policies, practices, and programs are among the best in the United States. In addition, we have been recognized by Washingtonian magazine as one of the 50 Best Places to Work in the Washington metropolitan area. On three occasions, we were named by Fortune magazine as one of the 100 best companies to work for in America, and, on nine occasions, the company was on Working Mother magazine's list of 100 best companies for working mothers. We've been featured in the Metropolitan Corporate Counsel Newsletter as an employer on the leading edge of diversity.

At Bloomberg BNA, diversity is not an initiative. Rather, it is an ongoing responsibility with the highest priority. We will continue to concentrate on implementing policies and practices that foster diversity in recruitment, retention, career management, productivity, and employee morale. We are optimistic that we will continue to live up to our reputation as an employer of choice.

    I have been working at Bloomberg BNA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for Bloomberg BNA for over 10 years. I was employed prior to the Bloomberg acquisition and I can say that the acquisition has yielded positive benefits to the organization. We have improved our technology, product offerings and the company culture is collaborative, inviting, and provides a great opportunity to learn new skills and advance within the organization. The benefits are great and the free snacks are an added bonus.

    Cons

    This is a very fast paced environment that requires that you work at a rapid pace.

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg BNA.

    Interview

    Very basic process. I applied online through their portal and received an email about a week later from a company recruiter requesting a phone call. I spoke to the recruiter, then had a phone call with the regional manager, then had an in-person interview with the regional manager. All this took place over the course of about 2 weeks.

    The in-person interview consisted of a role playing exercise where they have you "sell yourself" and also a case study where they have you utilize their website to answer some questions. This case study is not just to prove to them that you can use their interface, but also to test your ability to close the sale. This was where I messed up. I was so focused on getting the substantive answers right that I completely forgot that I was interviewing for a sales position and did not try to close the the imaginary prospect in the case study. Don't make my mistake!

    Overall it was a good experience and everyone was very professional.

    Interview Questions

    • They were very interested about whether I had any transactional sales experience. They also wanted accolades like champions club, presidents club, etc. where I could prove that I was consistently over quota in my current position.   Answer Question
