I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great people, interesting culture and challenging work if you're in the right spot. Professional growth is completely dependent on the group you are interested in, which can sometimes be difficult to get to but there are a myriad of opportunities.

Cons

The culture is in flux and not for the better. Management has slowly but surely begun to backburner employee needs in hopes of trimming the fat - but there are a host of high paid under skilled managers that have made ins with the "right" people to keep them where they are.

Advice to Management

Look internally for management roles so as not to continue diluting what was once a powerful culture.

    Pros

    Smart and engaged employees, passion for the energy game, always a new initiative or product under development, fascinating world-changing content, great reputation among clients

    Cons

    still some transition/growing pains as it evolves from a fiery startup to an operating division of a mature company like Bloomberg.

    Advice to Management

    work on applying BNEF best practices to adjacent areas of Bloomberg; create more opportunities for analyst exposure and sales leadership.

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

    Pros

    High degree of personal ownership in projects means that if you're on a solid team you can contribute almost immediately

    Cons

    Serious issues with reinventing the wheel, neglecting useful open-source alternatives, and in many places completely ignoring proper software development practices like continuous integration, unit testing, integration testing, etc. Proprietary everything means your skills are largely not transferable.

    Advice to Management

    Improve engineering practices to save everyone headache and anxiety
