    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    They pay a competitive salary and offer great benefits. There is room to learn new technologies & techniques every day. You can enjoy lots of free snacks and drinks.

    Cons

    There is incessant and never-ending work, with a demand for perfection and timeliness. There is no regard for an employee’s personal time or life, and you are expected to be always on and available to work late on evenings and weekends as a matter of regular course. Managers are trained to provide weekly “feedback” which is brutal, petty, and rehash of any unsubstantiated gossip they may hear about you (so you have the opportunity to disprove it). They pay lip service to agile development - managers never say no to work and developers have to agree to any amount of work thrown at them. Everything is measured, all communications are monitored and video cameras exist everywhere, even in conference rooms. There are no private spaces.
