Pros

great place to obtain licensing and gain experience and knowledge and about the markets. also provides huge opportunity to develop relationships within the investment community.

Cons

compensation could be improved, not greatly impacted by individual performance and still relative to peer performance. platform is not up to speed with current technology and is playing "catch-up" with the rest of the market.

Advice to Management

allow transparant communication between bloomberg depts on the bbg system. complete the tradebook offering with PB services and offer a more competitive compensaton package that greatly rewards significant outperformance.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Free chips and soda, if you work long hours and work for 1.5 persons man hours, you will get 10k bonus

    Cons

    They make you work 10 to 12 hours and pay only 8 hrs for consultants, crappy architecture, any one line
     of java code you change, you are using free jetty and it takes 30 minutes
    to builds the project.Why can;t they use websphere/RAD, which picks up hot deploymenyt automatically
    I wonder if the great mayor knows about this bad practises. Somebody should take action

    No balance between work life and personal life

    Advice to Management

    respect employees and do not insult saying that "you are a senior developer and you should not have any maven:jetty build issues" because using jetty is like a cheap company, use RAD/websphere for hot deployment and faster development
