    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Bloomberg is a terrific company. It offers a great benefits package and competitive salaries. People are very friendly and approachable. The organization is high-energy, fast-paced and changes quickly. Employees are able to work on a variety of projects and can also move internally with ease.

    Cons

    In some parts of the organization, especially on the Financial Products sales side, there is still too much clock-watching on the part of managers and less leading by accomplishments and overall productivity. However, in Engineering, they have really tried to minimize the "badge-in/badge-out" culture and are much more flexible about arrival times, departure times and working from home.

    Advice to Management

    cut the levels of bureacracy
