I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Mostly great colleges
Good managers who cares about their employees
Transparency (anyone can find out what other employees are working on)
Opportunity to get training on the job
Employees are encouraged to move around and there are programs specifically set up for employees to find the right team
Management becoming more concerned about the needs of developers (every getting new computers and much bigger monitors)
Some good technical work done depending on the team

Cons

A lot of what you experience can vary drastically depending on your team (Unfortunately, some teams may have to maintain application written using out of date technology, but I think that is slowly changing for the better)
Some internal politics to deal with, but I think this inevitable in a company of this size

Advice to Management

The company is going in the right direction, keep it that way.
Give employees more structure.
Focus on ways to improve the software code quality and methodology to retain and attract talented employees.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to meet and sell with other like minded colleagues. Opportunities to grow vertically are always available but takes time to jump roles. In the end, was offered a job which I held for two years

    Cons

    The pay isn't great and has a low morale after competing products offer cheaper solutions. I worked on a travel team and expected better compensation which never arrived.
