    Worked at Bloomberg from 1996 - 2000, it was a fast paced environment as well as a great place to learn technology as well as business.

    The golden handcuffs of the time were your bonuses.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It pays well, and is very secure. Sometimes there are free vegetables.

    Cons

    It is virtually impossible to get anything done here. The more ambitious and creative you are, the more you will hate it. You can't even use the Internet, which makes research and development practically impossible. I've worked for big banks, big tech, military intelligence, and I've never been in such a locked-down environment. Employees (and often co-workers) are treated as the enemy. The more you accomplish, the more visible a target you become. The technology is abyssmal, antiquated, and crippled. Working here is a dead-end because your skills will rot and become utterly irrelevant to the real world. Also, it is a sweat-shop. You will work 16 hour days on more than one occasion and you will be seen on weekends much more than any rational person would like. Also, constant interruptions, bright lights, loud noises, uncomfortable cramped quarters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsource everything, because you are not capable of managing R&D in a way that is not criminally abusive of your (well compensated, thank you very much, and i would like some more please) employees. Start firing at the top, where the moral turpitude, inhumanity, and general malevolence is the worst. Stop pretending about your culture. No one believes you any more.
