    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Stable work conditions.
    Free food and cool pantry.
    Young and intelligent people.
    Good way to learn more about finance and how to use Bloomberg Terminal.
    OK basic salary.

    Cons

    Poor management.
    Repetitive work.
    If you are ambitious and driven, it can be frustrating to copy paste data.

    Advice to Management

    Dont hire too many ambitious, driven people that are going to leave sooner than you plan due to the tasks at work. Work is not that demanding, so please do not hire those that are over qualified and want something more challenging.
    Also, please as for Global Data, do not hire TLs that are not intelligent and just good in doing what more senior people want them to do.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team members, free canteen,, supportive personal development, work can be satisfying

    Cons

    Poor management! some managers are put in place due to lack of staff at the time,, not having a shred of knowledge of what 'manager' actually means - some are more like play managers

    Advice to Management

    Where there is a high turnover in staff,, you should think actually is it that people do not like the job,, or is management to blame.. and provide a system where this can be voiced with out backlash
