I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Pay is good
Free food in every building
Some very sharp people work there

Cons

Corporate culture does not seem to promote cross-departmental communication
Open seating (no offices/cubicles) not for everyone
They confuse "agility" with "lack of structure"
Everything needed "right away" without much planning

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good compensations (salary, insurance, etc)
    - 20 paid off-days per year.
    - Easier to become a manager than most of other large tech companies

    Cons

    Really depends on the team. The following comments applies to most of the teams that I have heard of, but won't be true for everyone for sure.
    - Tech is really old and there are a lot of trivial work. It's hard to sharpen your tech skills. If you want to pursue a 'geek' career, that's not the place.
    - Bad work-life balance.
