    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Its all about looks here. Everything in the company is shiny and bright.
    -Perks used to be very good but most of them have been removed

    Cons

    -Almost no growth potential.
    -Impossible to get into management unless you are blessed by folks who have been there for over 20 years.
    -No work life balance. You will have to take support calls after midnight, about 2-3 times a week.
    -The skills you acquire here are of very little use outside.
    -Join only if you are very political and want to work there more than 2 decades.

    Advice to Management

    -You guys know most of you talent has left in the last few years and you are the reason.
    -When was the last time you read any technical material.
