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

    Pros

    Since the products that the teams develop are entirely client/customer based, you will be involved in the entire software development life cycle process. Teams are switching over to new technology (that's a very good sign). The entire company is transparent. You know what different teams are working on and the developers are easy to approach to.

    Cons

    Even though, the company has great volunteering program, there are not much employee networking events. Need a better software rollout process.

    Advice to Management

    More fun networking events.

    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can vary drastically depending on your team (Unfortunately, some teams may have to maintain application written using out of date technology, but I think that is slowly changing for the better)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.
