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

    Pros

    Salary! BB pays very well. This is the first company I've been at that actually makes good on their promise of a bonus as well. It's very stable here. This is NOT a hire / fire culture. They vet for the best and make every effort to make you successful in the company. If a team dissolves, they will work with you to find a new team - at least for engineers. The work from home capabilities are decent. You can wear whatever...

    Cons

    Not the most interesting work for web devs. The company is primarily based on the Terminal (C++ stuff with a UI literally from 1985), although I don't work on that. Web is up and coming here though, but at the moment there's only a few rare sweet spots in the company that are playing with a modern web stack.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the rigorous vetting process. The company and its engineers are well respected because of this. Create more of an open source presence at meetups and front end conferences. Also remember - you hire good people to get out of their way. This is mostly the case, but there's the occasional micro-manager.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, wonderful people, excellent perks. Very good training program for fresh recruits to catch up to company operations standards.

    Cons

    As with most financial-tech space, most of the tech stack is quite outdated and imbuing any new ones takes time and become quite mature or even outdated by the time they're part of the workflow.

      Advice to Management

      Too much of leadership is perceived as VERY FEW individuals. Most mid level managers are so scared of senior managers that you gets you to be disconnected from the realities of the majority of employees

    • Great job for first 2 years. After that they make you want to leave
