    Pros

    Health care, 401k, pantry, summer party

    Cons

    They over work you, management is demeaning and feels like a dictatorship. After getting gradual increases in salary, you hit an unspoken cap and they keep your pay the same. To justify this, they convince you that it's YOUR fault and blame on menial things.

    Advice to Management

    The morale is extremely low, you will lose all your talent if you continue to overly control their every move, critique them on small items and not acknowledge the good.

    Advice to Management

    Analyst make up the majority of your company in global data, pay some attention to them instead of what information the team leaders are feeding you (most of the time they have no idea how the product works)

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities if you're a go-getter, amazing benefits. Spent 7 years there and I loved most of it.

    Cons

    Had a bad experience with a manager (who was later fired) and HR handled it really badly. Felt abandoned by a company I'd given 7 years of my life and energy to. Ultimately it turned ok, but I had to fight for everything I got and it soured me on the company.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, a core fully grounded in philanthropy and community development, a truly challenging work environment

    Cons

    Loyalty at Bloomberg, in my opinion, is equated with tenure rather than merit. Organic growth is encouraged but perhaps to a fault where tenured managers are cycled in to positions where they lack the ability to succeed and can, as a by product seriously damage morale. Historically unprecedented RIF's have created a protectionist environment, breeding a culture of escalation, eroding the sense of team and partnership - I certainly work harder when pushing towards a common goal rather than waiting to step on the next land mine.

    Advice to Management

    Push back on escalation. Encourage discussion and transparency. Listen to all points of view and embrace alternative approach's to problem solving. Fostering an inclusive environment where people are inclined to help their colleagues as opposed to encouraging those throwing out banana skins would undoubtedly have a positive impact on productivity.
