I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Smart people, international colleagues, enough funding for reporting trips and congresses, nice office, good chances for advancement. Salaries good compared to other media. Very open to change, new policies or technologies are instituted very quickly. Young tea.

Cons

Very demanding atmosphere, output metrics seem to be arbitrary, top down management of stories. Strict editing. The Bloomberg Way is close to a cult book. Can be a bit inflexible. Focus on moving stock prices, not story quality.

Advice to Management

Give reporters some power.
