    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    good salary for new graduates

    Cons

    no career growth, every team working on 2 -3 functions, people's knowledge of finance is limited in small area, so it will be very hard to get job from other finance company like investment bank, hedge fund if you stay in Bloomberg for too long time.
    The tech Bloomberg use is very old, it's extremely difficult to find a job in high tech company if you stay in Bloomberg for more than 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    less politic battles focus on product development.
    Hire people who can coding not those who know talking more than coding.
