    Pros

    Strong and innovative design work for a corporate financial technology brand
    Talented and friendly coworkers
    Spectacular offices, fish tanks, and great snacks
    One of the best healthcare providers in the industry with healthy bonuses
    Excellent IT

    Cons

    Due to very weak onboarding and Terminal training for new hires, there’s a huge mental hurdle to acclimate during the first couple weeks/months at Bloomberg Agency.
    There’s a constant lack of headcount given the tremendous and demanding amount of work leading to tons of last minute scrambling and urgent requests.
    Creatives and project managers are spread very thin and are always burnt out. Upper management continually preaches about wanting everyone to "work more efficiently" without actually hiring more people or cutting down demand from clients.
    No career growth
    With a very low budget- work functions are rare (no holiday party) and you usually have to buy your own drinks.
    With high turnover and constant restructuring and layoffs, there’s always an atmosphere of instability and low morale

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation, lots of smart people

    Cons

    A culture focused on keeping the lights on in a business that runs on a huge body of old, poorly designed code.

    Pros

    - Great Office space
    - Unlimited Snacks
    - Lots of volunteer opportunities
    - Great benefits
    - Focus on employee well being is immense
    - Working with great and smart people

    Cons

    - Marketing Dept in its infancy with politics ruling all
    - Cliques are real within this department
    - No opportunity to a strategic partner to the business, but rather order takers in doing what the practice wants
    - No sense of mentor relationships, again politics are very prevalent
    - Innovation is not found here, instead we fostered in what we been doing and what makes the higher management 'nodd and agree'
    - No clear career path
    - Turnover and lay offs occur yearly
    - Long hours, my team lived to work
    - Poor management and direction
    - Lots of unproductive meetings

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work on some interesting things but all too dependent on manager. Having a good manager this place is great: flexible hours, great pay, good environment with smart colleagues.
    Great benefits

    Cons

    For having a bad manager it can be a nightmare: strict time punching, micromanaging, pushy

    Advice to Management

    None, as they don't care for feedback
