    Free snacks. Casual dress. That's it.

    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.

    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no job progress after being a sales rep, huge turnover in staff, results overly based on metrics and calling numbers, outdated sales techniques.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
