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 You will never be innovative with outdated micro management mechanisms and an army like rigid structure!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

    Great transparency between management and staff. Lots of room for growth. Decent office perks like fresh fruit and juice. They respect the work to life balance.

    Cons

    Some of the technology used might not be on the cutting edge. Company social life isn't great

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing
