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

Pros

You get to work with very very smart people. Salary is higher relative to most of the other firms except google

Cons

Very horrible training. You get fired if you dont have 80% in training, but actual job after training is very good

Advice to Management

Open R&D Office in other countries with different time zones. Nobody likes to wake up at night to fix things. It is also very necessary to not miss out talent in other countries if you want to compete globally.

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

    Pros

    High pay, good benefits, free food. Everything moves at a fast pace

    Cons

    Management does not value its technologists. The company has no interest in being a technology company, you will feel like you are working at a bank. Everything is proprietary, no interest in open standards or open source.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be a technology company, stop acting like a trading floor.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great technology in infrastructure teams. Company is pretty stable and treats employees with respect. Great process in managing production environment. Free access to snacks and refreshments is great. Overall satisfied with the company.

    Cons

    Top management in R&D is shuffled too often. Reorganizations happen too frequently. There is some amount of politics. Need to improve on SDLC methodologies.
