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

Pros

The positive environment as well as the horizontal structure are both key features of Bloomberg. There is no boundary between departments as well - as in, if you need help from someone in Sales, you just IB them and they'll call you up right away and help you out. Using the terminals was also a great part of the job.

Cons

I can't think of any from my own experience but that's just me

Advice to Management

Nothing much - management is effectively carried out here

    Outsource most of the grunt work of global data to India, or make it more automated.
