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

    Pros

    You get exposed to the market, clients, firms, people. If you are smart person you take advantage of these opportunities to learn and develop. There some great people that you can work with and learn from but you need to chase them. Great work life balance' literally - even senior people are you of the door at 6pm. Tend to be flexible in listening once you have prove you worth it.

    Cons

    Ridiculous level of employees in terms of knowledge (on an average level). There are people in the sales force that dont even know what they sale. + the management only care to see extra systems being sold, so that they can look good, get promoted etc. Representatives do not actually care of showing to the people they sell to what the worth of the terminal is,, just get the next one on the board. Good internal trainings but again with a focus on how to sell more,, how about some that teach you how the market functions? Has gone so big that there are TONS of processes to do the simplest things - which at some points gets really annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Educate your people (make them know what they sell and care--not sell due to the IB and Message system) + make company and processes less complex

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

    Pros

    Great company to work if you are fresh from school. Easy people (mostly) during the interview process (Based in UK) Recommended if you want to jump IB afterwards.

    Cons

    Lots of demotivated people, most of the people working there want to work in banks but cant a) because they are not well prepared, b) because they burned out in IB and want to chill.
    Extremely repetitive task (mostly copy and paste) to update the terminal.

    Advice to Management

    Works as a sect, you need to constantly prove yourself to them, if you want to opt to team leader and management you need to play by their rules otherwise be sure you´ll be stuck for a while.
