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

Pros

Fantastic support for continuing education, excellent location, interesting work, good benefits package inc private healthcare, open pay reviews, clear bonus structure. Supports the community and encourages involvement with local schools and charities.
10 week training program to get you up and contributing the minute you join your team.

Cons

Long Hours, High Pressure, Atmosphere occasionally can seem unsupportive, uses in-house tech rather than common architectures/databases, which can be frustrating to some. Not ideal if you are more interested in Quant-style work, or disinterested in the finance industry.

Advice to Management

Better support for Technical Leads/Managers.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time

    Pros

    Office was very nice, and brand new

    Cons

    This position has to be a scam. It has been posted for months, and every review on here for this position says there was no offer. Guess what, no offer again. This position is a joke, how can someone not be qualified for this, it's entry level, and I even have customer service experience!! What more could you want, don't make people come to your office just to send them all the same generic HR rejection e-mail.

    Advice to Management

    When you post a position at your company on the website, make sure it actually exists and don't screw people over. Disgusting for such a large and profitable company.

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

    Pros

    It should look good on a resume. You don't really do much, a lot of basic work that a person without a high school education can do.

    Cons

    They let temps go and bring them back anytime. For example you can be working one day and get told not to come back tomorrow. Then they may call in a week and ask you to start again on something different.
