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

    Pros

    If you do well, and have a supportive team leader and manager, they are very quick to give you more responsibility. Once you are established as a solid team player, there are many opportunities for growth, educational reimbursements and slow but steady raises.

    Cons

    Some teams are decidedly better than others, ranging from a bunch of very competent folks that would do well almost anywhere, to other teams which seem to be what's left after years of the cream of the crop skimming off to other places. You are not allowed to actively trade, and moonlight coding for open source projects is if not discouraged, at least made quite tedious and difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little less time making internal videos and producing new internal "awards", and spend a little more time regularly chatting with every employee outside of the lines of reporting.
