    Pros

    -Sense of purpose (philanthropy engagements)
    -Good pay
    -Flexible on time off and work from home

    Cons

    -When you're bad at your job you just get moved to another department, this leads to you being a bad employee elsewhere instead of being fired, hurting teams that depend on you

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

    Pros

    The company places significant value on those who bring significant value...if you are allowed to do so by your manager. Skills such as VBA, Python, and resiliency are treasured within Bloomberg's Global Data division. You are exposed to every level of investor from back office analyst to CEO. It looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    Global Data in particular needs to be completely gutted of the awful talent that is leading it on almost every level. The organization chart has become a mess, and people who should be leading departments are suppressed by awful managers who are in their positions because of how long they have been there and who they have befriended. This goes for many, many Team Leaders too. Your experience at Bloomberg will be significantly impacted based on who your initial Team Leader is.

    Advice to Management

    Perform a re-evaluation of Team Leaders and get rid of the incompetent ones. Dom has been in his role for too long and has completely lost sight of what analysts are dealing with on a day-to-day basis. And most importantly, stop firing people. It's like Tiananmen Square every other month.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time

    Pros

    Good place for your first job or your last job.

    Cons

    no flexibility. No room for growth. Once they put you in a role, you're expected to teach yourself everything. Very standardized performance. Guy who sits next to me doesn't even work, yet makes much more than me since he's been at the company longer.

    No fairness in compensation based on merit.
