    I worked at Bloomberg L.P. full-time

    Pros

    1. Benefits (the well-known pantry, vacation days, dental, healthcare, may pay for your part-time degree)
    2. 5 days work in Asia
    3. Good springboard into the finance industry
    4. Easily rewarded $ during economic good times
    5. Leader among vendors *good exit opportunities and bargain power if you want to go to other vendors*

    Cons

    1. People who advance up the rank know only how to manage upwards. Hence, your direct boss might not actually care about helping you grow because she or he is busy making the big boss happy.
    2. They reward those who talk big but can't produce anything.
    3. Senior management pays little respect and attention to culture in Asia/China/Hong Kong. E.g. expecting employees to be out visiting clients when its Chinese New year. They are also not sensitive to political situation in China. Well, at least they tried to sound like they know what is going on.
    4. In the States, bbg hours are 8-5. In HK, bbg hours are 8-6. That's 5 hours more a week-260 hrs more a year- easily 20 days more of work. So either they are paying Asian employees MUCH better (and that's no way true given the lower cost of living here *excuse of the company*), or this is just plain unfair (essence of the company culture)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote managers who actually pay attention and listen to their subordinates.
    Realize what is destroying the company from within and address it.
