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

Pros

Great work-life balance. Easy to move up career wise after 1-2 years of work. Great benefits, and ability to move around the company is fairly easy.

Cons

Overall great place to work. At times it can be difficult dealing with angry or disgruntled clients. Putting in for time off has to be done very far in advance .

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

    Pros

    Everything is team dependent
    Pay, work ethics, quality of work etc.
    In general, pay will be good in any team.
    If you are in a relatively new team then you may be using C++ and somewhat latest technologies.

    Cons

    Most teams will not tolerate tardiness and late arrivals, however late departures are always welcome here (infact much needed).
    Fortran and really old technologies are still prevalent in some teams. If you work there for 4 years, you are rendered almost useless for any other company.
    Things are changing though and its much better.
    There is definitely a lot of politics ( which is not obvious to leaf nodes)

    Advice to Management

    Less politics., 10B is a dream, then please make it 9B or 8B for all those hard-workers who have been chasing it. (10B is the revenue that Bloomberg targets)

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

    Pros

    Benefits. Some cool people work here. Smart, interesting colleagues. There's a 20 word minimum but I am struggling to get to it. It's a soul-destroying place to work.

    Cons

    Senior management is incompetent, uninspiring, egotistical. The senior managers exhibit a collection of mental and mood disorders to rival Bellevue's wards. Management is there to use Bloomberg as a stepping-stone to other jobs, or to save for retirement, so there is no planning for the future. The company's commitment to TV and digital is questionable. The HR people are shills, nothing more. I've never seen a more cowardly bunch.

    Advice to Management

    Resign.
