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

Pros

Office culture, solid base pay,

Cons

Metrics aren't realistic at times, numerous leadership changes in the non-core businesses resulted in a lack of direction and overall poor performance of said business units. Even if you don't work for one of these units it will directly impact your bonus.. So it matters!

Advice to Management

Put leaders with a strong Bloomberg background in charge of the various business units. DC needs help!

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

    Pros

    Great training programs, great benefits, great perks, great upward mobility

    Cons

    salary is OK, a little below market even, expect to have great opportunities to move up the chain (if you work hard and don't mind long hours or constant trips) but don't expect the salary to follow suit...

    Advice to Management

    The work-life balance of the company is great for recent grads, awful for parents and people over 30... Bloomberg has a very high turn over, and I believe they are ok with that, as many of their ex-employees become Bloomberg clients, the product is awesome! Working there for the long run is hard financially and on the work-life balance
