I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

This is a great company which cares a lot of its own employees in terms of continuing education and mentorship. The compensation is good and there are a lot of tech communities within the company allowing you to do things outside of your functional area.

Cons

Lack of clear technical track for engineers who are not interested in managing people. Product managers expect engineers to do business analysis but engineers do not necessarily get credit for it.

Advice to Management

Create a technical track, PLEASE! Titles are not evil while people abusing position powers are! Don't throw the bathwater away together with the baby.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can find just about anyone around the corner who are willing to help and guide you.

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be a lot of red tape, but as a company gets larger, there must be restrictions set to avoid risk and in order to stay compliant. However, this isn't a con per se, it's just something you will need to know and understand.
