Neutral Outlook

I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Smart people, good salary, great benefits, opportunities to change groups, try other things like philanthropic activities, recruiting etc. free food, open environment.

Cons

Not many. A few groups have legacy code base, might be boring to maintain. A few groups may have unwanted politics. Quite a few times need to put in long hours. A few good employees may take a long time to see growth opportunities.

Advice to Management

Please don't make good employees wait too long to grow within the company.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, Diverse and friendly culture/environment, Strong client base, Opportunity for internal mobility, Good resources available through various internal teams/colleague's backgrounds

    Cons

    Many employees are in-the-box thinkers more taking orders than taking ownership. Several employees break down barriers while there are many more just coming in for their 8-5pm day. Very metrics driven - to the point of it being a negative in most employee's eyes.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your top performers better. Pay your mediocre employees less (and fire them more often.)

    You are an innovative company with impressive products - make sure you retain and attract top talent where it's needed to stay relevant. Can't rely on terminal business forever.
