I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Resume fodder = strong. Talented co-workers = good. Many divisions to interact with = good.

Cons

Young MBAs pushing out all the "old" experienced vets = bad. "New" company execs manage up the ladder well, manage down the ladder very poorly. Company HR only cares about the company, NOT the employees. No lateral growth opportunities. Was a great company years ago, is a toxic company since Mike left.

Advice to Management

Stop listening to only the accountants and the consultants. Get out of the media business, you are no good at running it, except as Mike originally intended: as marketing support for terminal subscriptions.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, focused colleagues. Excellent benefits. Challenging environment (in a positive way). Good products that are well received by clients. Pantry is nice.

    Cons

    Expect some late nights! Open seating plan takes some getting used to, but at least it is entirely equitable (CEO sits in the open as well). No company cafeteria (but I hear that is changing).

    Advice to Management

    With the (recent) exception of the CEO, most senior executives are "lifers" so 'best practices' at other firms is often ignored.
