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

Pros

Great training programs and seminars

Cons

Company does not take the employee´s strength when promoting, they will promote just to promote and will not listen to the feedback of the employee

Advice to Management

Listen more to employee feedback and try to put people where they will feel more confortable

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

    Pros

    Their was a great all-expenses-paid break room for the employees.

    Cons

    No transparency. Work overloading due to faulty performance analysis systems. No chance for lower level employees to concentrate job specifics or move up unless your are very attractive.

    Advice to Management

    Value people who have served your company with their hard work ad loyalty or it will come back upon your company's reputation and its long-termed profits.

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

    Pros

    Bloomberg has a very systematic approach to sales. If you are able to conform to the Bloomberg way, you can succeed. There are multiple opportunities to learn about other areas of the business and with the media/news arm, it gives finance people exposure to a different industry. The benefits at BBG are fantastic.

    Cons

    The grading system is very rigid here. If you are an out of the box thinking or an independent type of employee who does not like guidance, this may not be the place for you. The company rewards loyalty over intelligence and hard work. Managers have too much power here. There is not a lot of work/balance life as the company likes to advertise. Some "lifers' feel comfortable taking "work from home" days but generally its frowned upon and you are expected to be in the office as if you are working on the clock.
