    Pros

    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

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no job progress after being a sales rep, huge turnover in staff, results overly based on metrics and calling numbers, outdated sales techniques.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

    Pros

    Great offices, free food, high level of technology, good rates for freelancers.

    Cons

    As with any large organisation, there's plenty of politics, reshuffling and egos!

    Advice to Management

    Ideas can come from anywhere. Allow anyone in the creative teams to put forward ideas and don't be afraid to acknowledge and give praise where necessary.

    Pros

    Medical Benefits Lateral movement Free Food Good Working Environment Encourages collaboration

    Cons

    You can progress your role into manager and even higher but if you plan to have a career in finance or quantitative analytics, it might be a challenge or will take a long time. Your role can progress but your career will be stagnant and be stuck in customer service. Admin/Customer Service disguised as "Analyst" Job. Claim to be a tech company but relies heavily on Excel. If Microsoft takes out Excel, Bloomberg... will shut down along with the world market that relies on Bloomberg data. Not a finance job but a financial product ambassador; people do modelling and financial analysis but it is just to make "clients" have ease of use and show more functionality for the terminal. Analyst/Analytics here is synonymous to knowing what the client/customer needs and not necessarily include any quantitative analysis. Might be less than 5% that quantitative analysis will be required for an Analyst job.

    Advice to Management

    Check your people's qualifications. For such a selective hiring process, the job/role placement is disappointing. Technical people are placed on admin roles while non-technical are placed in technical roles.
