    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay, ability to provide feedback on managers

    Cons

    Horrible management- "tech leads" or managers - in Engineering - are promoted to their positions based solely on tenure not on ability or acumen People don't know how to manage other people Little diversity in engineering - witnessed 2 women get let go in a department of about 40 men, leaving only 1 woman on the team No work life balance - long hours expected, working from home frowned upon unless you are your... manager's 'favorite' Financial Products office team is verbally abusive, witnessed cursing, yelling/screaming, unprofessional rants many times, in person and over calls, was hung up on by a colleague because he was "not happy" Lack of training and adequate ramp up time to learn the Bloomberg Terminal So many people working there are long timers - been there since they graduated college...so it's hard to find people who are open minded or well rounded, they only know the Bloomberg way and they are unwilling or unable to change or embrace new ideas even though they push 'innovation' down your throat 24/7 Departments are immature and unwilling to consider changes to process, also unwilling to use any tools outside of the Bloomberg Terminal or that are not proprietary to the company Management forces use of outdated process and software and does not embrace using the best tools out there or use even best practices They would rather you fit their style of work and not bring new ideas to the table Developers are mollycoddled incessantly and bad habits are enabled, not disciplined
