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

Pros

The colleagues are great and the benefits are quite good. The possibility of path and career advancements, as well as international moves are good.

Cons

Coming as an outsider it takes a while to adjust to the very collegiate and child like company culture. They boast a flat structure, but in reality it's quite hierarchical as everywhere.

Advice to Management

What is the strategy once we have penetrated all the sell-side firms? How are we going to maintain leadership in a cost cutting world?

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

    Pros

    It's good to work for a media company that has deep pockets. I don't just mean the above-average compensation, benefits, nice offices, other perks. When this company puts its mind to something, it can throw resources at the problem. Whether it does or not is another issue.
    It has a great core product. The Bloomberg terminal, when used properly, is a remarkable device. A parallel Internet.
    Overall, the people I've worked with and met at the company have been decent, caring, hard-working people.
    The training options at the company are quite good but not always made available to everyone. You sometimes have to fight to get on courses.

    Cons

    It's not a media company. Media is a minor side business. It doesn't always have the best interests of media division at heart.
    They will work you hard. The 50-hour MINIMUM work week is often touted as a good thing, a competitive advantage. Expect to do 9-, 10-hour stints without the slightest break. This is the result of relentless cost-cutting over recent years.
    Time off is adequate. Decent for an American company.
    The company says it cares about professional growth but personal experience indicates otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in quality personnel
    Structure the company so as you can promote and develop the people with skills, experience and talent
    Don't burn people out
