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

    Pros

    They pay you. Kitchens nice. Cool office. You get to travel and stay at nice hotels.

    Cons

    - In house politics rule the day.
    - Meritocracy is an illusion to keep the kids they hire blinkered.
    - A few notable old timers excepted, there is hardly any real knowledge or expertise left outside of NY.
    - In any case no ones really listening to feedback anyway.
    - Management jobs are hardly worth having. No real management controls or decision making abilities exist outside of a handful of people in NY. The rest is just a series of titles without real power.
    - Companies Arrogance is staggering
    - This company is 100% an example of the adage "Perception is reality". As long as they portray an image of competance, people buy it. Actually they were once great but are only trading on their name today.
     - Classic example of a Company in the "Cash Cow" phase of its business.
    - No genuine regard for peoples development.
    - HR is exclusively a tool for management control of Staff. There is absolutely No real care for employees and their concerns.
    - Thorough disregard for compliance related issues internally (probable reason for recent scandals)
    - Treat staff as a robot whose every move is co-ordinated and screened.

    Advice to Management

    1) Start to REALLY listen to Customers around the world.
    2) Start to REALLY listen to Staff.
    3) Tom Secunda - Please retire you're past it.
    4) You have let a wealth of knowledge and expertise walk out the door. You now need to genuinely start innovating again (Genuinely-not just superficially). To successfully do that you are going to need to Hire and maybe Re-hire what you have lost.
    5) Loosen up, let more decisions be made locally.
    6) Embrace the quirky, non conformers - they bring change.
    7) Flatten the structure again. Allow staff room to breathe life back into the company.
    8) Seriously address the business model. Its way past its sell by date.
    9) Stop dictating, start delivering.
    10) Cut out the endless pointless internal meetings.
    11) Beware the managers with endless powerpoint presentations - they dont do any real work, its all just self justification.
