    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time

    Pros

    Free snacks, Good views on higher floors, Bike racks in the building, Good-looking recruiter ladies, Abundant volunteering opportunities

    Cons

    Lots of favoritism, Fairly lower education level of management compared to other tech companies (very few ivy league alumni can be found here), Highly bureaucratic, Super old system and very slow to adapt to newer technologies

    Advice to Management

    Please stop promoting others with the same ethnicity as yours to higher levels. Please be considerate of your subordinates and treat them with respect and understanding. Please try to reduce the amount of friction and bureaucracy in getting very simple things done.

    Pros

    Great working environment, nice package, enjoy all the food and staff benefits

    Cons

    however, if you have met a horrible team leader, your career in Bloomberg is pretty much doomed. That depends on how lucky you are.

    Advice to Management

    be cautious when selecting team leader, a lot of staff left because of the direct management group

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time

    Pros

    Glamorous company, good salaries benefits and lots of perks.

    Cons

    It is a very bureaucratic, slow, non flexible environment. People are not encouraged to think outside the box. You need to comply with their army-like rules. All managers are micro managers who have been there forever, because of the multiple perks, and will never learn anything new. Brilliant and creative people are chased and thrown out. Vindictive, petty HR policies.

    Advice to Management

    This is a dinosaur company, your hierarchy is out of place in today's world. Listen to your employees! Show flexibility - people are not robots. You will never be innovative with outdated micro management mechanisms and an army like rigid structure!

    Pros

    Good amount of responsibility applied very early on. If you push your manager they will give you the opp to move forward quickly

    Cons

    Job can get tedious, not intellectually stimulating. Also roadpath to upper level management is confusing without a clear directive.
