    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Good for entry level salesperson
    - Cutting edge technology
    - Good People.
    - Snacks

    Cons

    - Poor sales managers - lots of micromanagement and focus on metrics unrelated to sales
    - Abundance of initiatives passed down to sales force unrelated to true selling. No longer promote independent thought
    - No true sales people, just account managers
    - Low pay versus comparable firms. Long term bonus not attainable as management purposely sets unrealistic targets

    Advice to Management

    - Learn to value true sales skills
    - Pick sales managers that are good at developing talent.
    - Value your employees
    - Enough with the initiatives and encourage independent thought and projects that lead to sales.
