    "Contract Analyst within BloombergWealth"

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice work space- but the open-floor lay out doesn't really inspire much communication. People tend to keep to their niches.

    Cons

    Political manager within BloombergWealth- had some bizarre and petty vendetta against me, even though my role was purely temporary. Made work-life needlessly difficult. Really pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    Not really qualified to offer any- short stay.

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

    Pros

    Probably one of the greatest offices in all of New York.

    Free food / snacks / drinks.

    Bloomberg is a great place to get introduced to the finance sector, a great place to stay or a great leg up into other big financial names.

    Bloomberg University gives great classes on a wide range of subjects.

    Bloomberg hires the best they possibly can, and are willing to pay to get the best

    Cons

    Alot of people get siloed into doing one thing, very easy to get pigeon-holed. They try to hire big industry names, and then pay them to do work that is relatively non-interesting so they don't stick around. Very easy to get lost in the organization.

    Terminal sales aint what they used to be, they are working to fix this but your bonus will probably not beat expectations.

    Clocking into and out of work, cameras everywhere, and open floorplan lead to paranoid workers watching eachother for transgressions. Very strange environment socially.

    Advice to Management

    Update some of the odd rules that maybe made sense when this was a 50 person company, get outside help for this.
