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

Pros

Great work/life balance. Good benefits and decent vacation. Free food each day which was pretty good.

Cons

Management doesn't have any fresh ideas because they refuse to bring in managers from the outside. Pay is below average but probably fair for the work and hours required. A great place to start a career but tough to get out once in. Most jobs don't transfer well.

Advice to Management

Get employees who know the products more involved with decisions since they are the ones working with clients each day.
