Featured Review

Current Employee - Account Manager

I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Combining the best of the financial and technological elements of the job market, Bloomberg is an excellent firm to work for. Driven by results, but with a fair work-life balance : allowing each... employee to adapt accordingly to their ambition and personal/family needs. Excellent facilities (their London office is the best in the world) and perks. Firm has a fantastic track record since its inception.

Cons

It could create an internal platform for innovative ideas; or partnering with employees launching new enterprises.

Current Employee - Consultant

I have been working at FactSet full-time

Pros

FactSet offers very exciting technologies to clients, and offers invaluable experience in a client-facing role. If you’ve just begun a career, I can imagine no better place to receive support in the... financial industry. Great training program, you will basically be getting paid for the first 6 months to learn to communicate effectively and gain industry knowledge. Even though I’m in consulting, I recently had the chance to develop an application with some of FactSet’s APIs in the API-Athon. I felt encouraged to push myself in a positive way. Work life balance is encouraged

Cons

There can be a stigma attached to decisions made by management, but this has improved because management have listened to feedback. Management have less tools to retain valuable employees which can... be a shame, as it has meant that competition were able to poach more successfully.

Advice to Management

No advice, they’re doing great
