      Analytics/Sales - not for everyone.. READ THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS.

      Pros

      - For non-finance entry-level grads only, can learn quite a lot about financial industry in relatively short amount of time (1-2 years). - High pay for entry-level grads, great benefits (401k, world-class health plan, etc.) - Good chance of meeting some intelligent co-workers who work very hard and want to produce better work than the day before. I made my best friends at Bloomberg, some of which I met during my first week. - Company health is never in doubt - highly, highly stable employer, no real fear of job loss in this division (though this might just be because they can't retain anyone, more told below). If you work hard, you will ALWAYS have a good job at a company with a good name.

      Cons

      - In Analytics/Sales, you are treated like a child by management with inane targets to reach, cartoonish metrics, frequent and unnecessary check-ins with direct supervisors, constant indoctrination of "culture" norms, "fire drills" to smile-and-dial or simply please upper management at a whim, sometimes at the cost of your own current client work. VERY CONDESCENDING and each year, it seems to be getting worse. - You are told you can "go to any department" after doing 18 months in Analytics, but other destinations than Sales are almost non-existent. I have personally witnessed Analytics mgmt block great employees from joining other departments that asked for them specifically, only to counter with Sales so the group can fill quotas. - You are not working directly in finance, you are selling financial data = reduced exit opportunities. You are not paid on commission in Sales, which is both good (forgiving for newer reps) and bad (high performers can get stifled). - Company constantly underpays veteran employees of the firm just to bring in overpriced external hires "from the street", then acts surprised when said 10+ year internal veterans or exceptional young talent leave for better pastures in finance/tech/elsewhere. - Even while the firm is rich in cash, they understaff, so you will feel like you're at a start-up wearing four hats instead of one, except with the red tape of a firm rich in cash. - A lot of talk and no walk when it comes to diversity. Bloomberg's senior management (anything above team leader or immediate manager) are shockingly white, male and 45+ for a company that bills itself as progressive and uses indicators to track gender equality and board diversity in finance on the terminal. This is a company that self-congratulated itself when their chairman went on record saying it wanted to aim for 32% of all mgmt on a five-year track to be women. 32%!!!! He didn't bother to give a metric for people of color. Pathetic.
