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

    Pros

    - Relatively easier to get in, no previous experience is required, just interest in financial markets is good enough.
    - Sponsor international workers
    - Offers you the opportunity to learn about different asset classes, talking about an overview rather than in depth knowledge.
    - Decent entry level salary
    - A good brand name on CVs

    Cons

    - Arrogant mindset they think they are like an investment bank, but they are not!
    - Too much politics, image is more important than what is really being offered/achieved.
    - Very controversial and not trust worthy performance evaluation system.
    - Everything is being decided in the U.S, the london office just follows the instructions.
    - Arrogant and ignorant management.

    Current Employee - Data Analyst in Singapore (Singapore)

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

    Pros

    - Bright, motivated & friendly colleagues (mostly young, you'll always find someone if you want to go for drinks)
    - Very diverse workforce
    - Generous benefits & well-stocked pantry
    - Lots of learning opportunities (internal trainings)
    - Many community engagement activities (volunteer projects, galas and etc)
    - Stable job

    Cons

    - Limited upside means most people either stay in the job for years or move laterally or just quit and move on
    - Little transferable skills: Market players seldom consider a data analyst to be equipped with relevant skills/experience despite handling an asset class for several years.
    - Most skills you need can be picked up in 6-8 months
    - Work can be voluminous and tedious (lots of data clean ups, manual data entry, etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Hire better quality vendors with proficient language skills

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
