I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of resources, access to almost anyone in financial services, good training programs, food and other amenities are topnotch
Employee perks like summer picnic and Big Apple Circus make you feel valued

Cons

Product managers and engineers will struggle to work across businesses and overcome twenty-five years of legacy systems; everything takes longer to get done or ships with less functionality than it should; many long-tenured employees are semi-retired at full pay, and loyalty is often put above current productivity

Advice to Management

More career development at mid-career; lots of skilled people plateau for not making the right connections or knowing the right people above them

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Seemingly great opportunities - not on the legal (product & data) side. Financial side poses much better chances for long-term growth.

    Cons

    Limited growth potential. Team Leaders & Mangers do very little to encourage individual growth. Far too great an emphasis on individual metrics, rather than long-term growth with company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better and they will respond accordingly. Management tends to be almost robotic. They receive seemingly ample training in dealing with their team members and still lack an ability to relate to their teams.
