    Amazing office, great ambiance and vibes, transparency, free food If you perform well, they will invest so much in you from knowledge to mental health wise Philanthropy Diversity Great culture Dynamic work, never dull

    Cons

    Really I don't have much. Just the fact that if you quit, even if for personal reasons like do a MBA or a family matter, it is impossible to go back in

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P.

    Pros

    Free snacks. Casual dress. That's it.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional environment. Training non-existent. Disorganized, clumsy and unqualified personnel promoted into staff leading positions. Staff very unhappy and terrible atmosphere within the office. No one knows what they are doing from one day to the next.

    Advice to Management

    Extremely disrespectful of staff. Need to remove key members of "management" team.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bloomberg L.P.

    Pros

    Free Food, Very smart people, Great training. The training is very good and the time spent in analytics is by far the highlight because you don't spend any time doing the actual job, you just go to classes and participate in team projects.

    Cons

    glorified call centre, no job progress after being a sales rep, huge turnover in staff, results overly based on metrics and calling numbers, outdated sales techniques. A lot of people in this division missed out in late rounds of bank interviews and will jump ship as soon as they get the chance. Skills are not as transferable as they make you think

    Current Employee - Out Patient Surgery Scheduler 

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

    Pros

    Better pay and benefits than any news organization I can think of. Can tap into a huge range of journalists who are excellent at what they do. Highly collaborative editorial culture. Internal movement encouraged.

    Cons

    Everything revolves around the Bloomberg terminal. Everything. Some beats require virtually constant monitoring of alerts and inbox, which can make it difficult to focus on longer-term projects without being constantly interrupted. Bloomberg cares about what Wall Street cares about, and little more. "Comfort the comfortable" and "make the rich richer" are phrases commonly dropped by employees about their roles, and they're only half-joking.
