      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.

      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 You will never be innovative with outdated micro management mechanisms and an army like rigid structure!
