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

    Pros

    Exciting work atmosphere
    Free food
    Really cool employee culture- events, free museum membership, etc.
    Beautiful office gave a sense of pride to work there
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance
    Even with high ratings, bad raises with the continuous excuse of "times are tough"

    Advice to Management

    If you are rated a 1 or a 2, and you only get a very slight raise each year, there is absolutely no motivation to stay. Why should I be a top performer and continuously get underpaid? It's also extremely insulting to hear that the company didn't do great this year and your minimal salary increase is actually high. What is my motivation to stay here?
    Also, work life balance is awful. I was a top performer who didn't need to be chained to my desk to be productive. There is a lack of trust and a big brother mentality that isn't normal. I am now at a much larger and much more successful company where I am compensated handsomely and I am much more productive and motivated- even with my very flexible schedule.

    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.
