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

Pros

The pay is good, the people are smart, the snacks are free. Work is generally interesting, and a good deal of flexibility is given to make your own hours and choose a project that is engaging for you.

Cons

Developers often have to support legacy software that has no chance of ever being replaced. The company has some really proprietary practices, architectures, etc., that do not translate into building your programming skills in the world at large. This often makes it tough to transition out of Bloomberg to another company.

Advice to Management

Give interns more choice in what division or team they work for. It leads to a more productive experience for both sides.

    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.
