    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits (Insurance, Free Lunch)
    Good Hours (Ability to start within a given time range and leave withing a given time range)

    Cons

    Lack of Career Growth
    Monotonous work
    Constantly changing technology that are never used. Spend weeks working to implement new technology and structure only for the structure to change when the work is completed.
    Changing technologies are almost impossible as some systems are decades old and have dependencies that seem like they will never be changed
    Projects are given without scoping out possibilities and dependencies. Decisions are made from the top level without an understanding of what is actually possible. Made based on what management think will work
    Very little communication between Data and R&D side both which have completely different understanding of systems and time allocated. Makes joint projects very difficult especially when Data pushes one thing which R&D says is impossible

    Advice to Management

    Stop moving so quickly and actually understand what is possible before making decisions. Don't simply do something because it is new. Understand when something was a failure and learn from it. Speak with multiple parties before pushing a new product/technology. Constantly changing/new technologies has left the company constantly just fighting fires and adding messy fixes which no one understands.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Forward looking firm with a pretty great culture - they are constantly looking to automate processes and be more efficient. Benefits for employees are great (free breakfast and lunch, ice cream in the office on Fridays during the summer, subsidized health-related purchases, etc.) and the work-life balance is pretty solid as well.

    Cons

    A big portion of the job for many teams involves customer-service related work. Relatively high turnover.

    great work atmosphere with complete dining hall. co workers and managers are always willing to offer help and assistance.

    Advice to Management

    offer a course on basic terminal training, and then offer project specific training for at least a day. Vary the range of projects available.
