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

Pros

This is a Great company that is well poised be a big player in the Marketplace for a very long time. They offer great benefits and they do take care of their valued employees. This is a very dynamic, never a dull moment, environment. Once your in, there are abundant opportunities for movement within the company, both locally and internationally.

Cons

It used to be a lot more tight knit, when I first started, 15+ years ago. This is an unfortunate byproduct of maximum growth over the years. Personally I think it was a fair trade to give up some of the closeness of days, past. Fortunately, the closeness comes from your work group now.

    Hectic - need to slog sometimes.
    Some legacy code to be dealt with at times - but this depends on team.

    Manhattan => commuting time is high.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce workload for programmers in general.
    Speed up the transition to newer technologies.
    Give more scope for programmers' creativity.
    Improve facilities - elevators, toilets etc in quantity (quality is good).
