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.

    Pros

    Lots of room to move around between the different departments, room for growth if you work for it. A lot of promoting from within.

    Cons

    Compensation for move to management position is not really enough or much more than if you hadn't taken that responsibility. Some perks and benefits are being cut/restricted in the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    I think the company runs pretty well, salaries are pretty good but things used to be a bit better before. Not sure if the economy is purely to blame for this.
