    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company offers fantastic health-care benefits, and as of 2013, still covers the entire cost for most of its employees. All U.S. workers get four weeks of vacation -- great if you're starting out, but there's no real chance to increase that figure. Those who last 10 years are given an extra 3 days, which is the max for the U.S.

    Cons

    The insurance benefit is still as good as or better than similar companies, but it dwindles every year. In 2013, Bloomberg began charging a premium to workers unless they completed a health assessment.

    The bonus plan looks attractive, but usually doesn't live up to its billing. Yearly incentive pay is split evenly between targets for company performance and individual performance, and the company hasn't hit its goals a single time since the financial crisis. Makes people wonder if top management is being unrealistic about its targets or just clever.
