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

    Pros

    Finance is a diverse and challenging problem domain, and Bloomberg has a lot of very interesting technical problems and solutions. I have excellent technical coworkers, and Bloomberg has a culture that gives substantive raises to good developers so they stick around more than the typical 2-3 years.

    Cons

    30 years of technical debt, in the form of a terribly written Fortran codebase and a very strange software architecture, are a lead weight on current and future development if you get stuck on the wrong team. There's a clear path forward to sideline and replace these technologies, but it's a long ways away for a lot of groups.

    Advice to Management

    Years of effort to modernize development practices have had a substantial positive impact, keep going.

    Pros

    Great Firm
    Great Benefits
    Very relaxed/chill work
    Flat structure

    Cons

    Your work highly depends on your department. You could have an extremely dynamic and exciting job/team or not so much.
    No equity like other firms
    Very flat structure. So much so that a promotion could be 5-10 years away (depends on department)

    Advice to Management

    Faster Promotion
