    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My manager was a great guy to work with, very helpful, professional, very much enjoyed working with him. Being that I worked remotely, I did not interface with too many people from the company, only a few. But those that I did were very helpful, very friendly, and very professional. I definitely enjoyed that aspect of the job.

    Cons

    Hard to reach superiors sometimes, communication could be poor sometimes. Payment was slow arriving. I worked part time and worked remotely, so my experiences might differ from others. However just in the University Sales department (where I worked) I feel that they needed a bit more organization and also could use some additional managers. I felt my manager was many times almost too busy to really devote full attention to situations that would come up.

    Advice to Management

    Need a bit more consistency and organization in the University Sales department. More management would perhaps be helpful.

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best learning experience of all in core C++, server side coding, templates, JS async framework etc. Then out of nowhere a reorg happens and you are left with nothing that you built with so much hard work.
    Good pay, amazing benefits (best in NYC), pretty building, rarely fires (always puts on performance plans), very fast learning
    CEO discussed voluntary work that I did with them, they have amazing matches with your community involvements (they matched for me $5k to my charity for my voluntary hours)

    Cons

    Too many reorgs (not just my team but others too)
    Very competitive, hard to get an exceeds expectations. Proprietary tech, at times too fast paced, steeper learning curve

    Advice to Management

    Shuffle people less and let them build themselves in a role with time
